When I first became an advisor in France more than ten years ago, the single most important criteria for those moving to France  was protecting capital due to the different inheritance rules here. Almost exclusively our clients were of a certain age and retiring to live their dream in France.

How times have changed! Our client base now encompasses all age ranges including those moving for work or setting up their own businesses.

Brexit has had a huge impact and many people are bringing forward their dream move so that they can meet the residency criteria that will be place from 2021. There is still doubt and uncertainty for sure. The ability to move freely throughout Europe and live where we like will, in the future, be subject to a new set of rules for us.

There will be an ability to apply for the long stay residency visa from July online, known as the ‘carte de séjour’. So, this should have the ability to cut out the onerous paperwork trail and numerous appointments at your local prefecture.

Currently the minimum income criteria is listed below:

Minimum Income Criteria per month(amounts valid as of April 1, 2020)
Number of children or persons in your charge Living alone Living as a couple
0 564,78 € 847,17 €
1 847,17 € 1016,60 €
2 1016,60 € 1186,03 €
Per child or person in your care 225,91 € 225,91€
  • Information taken from the caf.fr website 01/06/20

The questions we are receiving at the moment are as follows:

  • Is offshore property rental income allowable as part of your income?
  • Yes, our current understanding is that most forms of regular income are allowable including pension, salaries, and rental income.
  • We will be living off our savings until we retire or set up our business; will this be taken into account?
  • Ah, well here is the tricky bit. Drawing directly off savings or capital does appear to a sticking point currently as its not considered to be regular income.

 

What can you do?

This is where we come in. We can find a suitable home for your capital and set up a regular income plan that will help you meet the criteria listed above. It doesn’t have to be in Euros so if you prefer to keep your funds in sterling or dollars we can provide that too. That plans will also meet the strict taxation criteria set down by the French tax authorities so that you won’t get any nasty surprises later on tax wise.

If you would like further details or to have a confidential discussion about your own personal situation, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Renovated country house in a hamlet in Brittany

The house is believed to have been built in the 1770’s and has been renovated by the present owners.  There are many character features including exposed beams and a granite fireplace and the accommodation is spacious.  It stands in a quiet rural hamlet and has a garden and barn which serves for storage and workshop.  Viewing is recommended.

The property  is in Ille-et-Vilaine in the Brittany region of France,  in a quiet location, yet only five minutes from shops (including a supermarket) and restaurants in the village of Louvigné-du-Désert.  The ancient town of Fougères is a 15 minute drive from the house and the Fougères Forest is just a 10 minute drive for forest walks, horse riding, mountain bike tracks and lakeside swimming.  The Brittany American War Cemetery and Memorial is 15 minutes from the property.  The closest airport to the house is at Rennes (64 km) and slightly further afield are Dinard Airport (70 km), Angers Airport (119 km), or St. Brieuc Airport (127 km).  Within an hour’s drive are the towns of Laval, Granville, Villedieu-les-Poêles, the small fishing port of Cancale and Rennes, the capital of Brittany with its medieval streets and half timbered houses.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is within very easy reach (32 km) as are the beaches on the North Brittany coast.  The closest ferry port is at Saint Malo which is about 1 hour away.
