INDEPENDENT FINANCIAL ADVICE FOR EXPATS LIVING IN THE UAE

Life in the UAE can be quite glamourous for expats who earn high tax-free salaries. Away from the glitz the UAE represents a good place to develop a career and even raise a family amongst an expat community that has access to first class schools and healthcare.

UK-REGULATED ADVICE ON UK PENSIONS
If you’ve spent a significant part of your career working in the UK then it’s probable that you’ll have accumulated pensions either in the form of defined contribution pots or defined benefit final salary pensions.
We give the best UK-regulated advice on UK pensions for British expats in the UAE. Unfortunately many British expats in the UAE have been badly advised in the past and transferred their UK pensions into Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Schemes (QROPS) in jurisdictions like Guernsey, Malta and Gibraltar. The majority – probably 99% – of these were done unnecessarily and could actually leave you worse off from a tax perspective.

FINANCIAL ADVICE FOR US EXPATS
US expats and US connected persons face challenges with regard to their investments as many financial institutions simply won’t allow U.S. connected persons to hold investment products and increasing numbers of U.S. financial institutions are closing brokerage accounts for U.S. connected persons with overseas addresses.
The U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) has paved the path for subsequent and more global regimes, notably the Common Reporting Standard (CRS).
Providing correct advice to US expats is just one area in which we specialise. For a free and confidential meeting about your situation, please contact us via the form below.
