French Tax and QROPS
- Also available: Gerard Associates' Tax Facts - France
It is vitally important to understand how different jurisdictions define residency for tax purposes before undertaking a pension transfer to a qualifying recognised overseas pension scheme.
French residency is determined in several ways.
- Your main home is in France
- You spend more than 183 days in France per year. (French tax year is same as calendar year)
- Your occupation is principally in France
- Your main income is derived in France
- You hold most of your worldwide assets in France
Income from any QROPS is liable to French income tax in full.
