Your essential Guide to moving to France In these difficult times with the Covid-19 virus preventing travel and halting plans, and the upcoming removal of the UK from the European Union, we asked Jennie Poate of Beacon Global Wealth to give us some top tips to help those planning on moving to France when they can… You find your dream home in France, you can’t wait to move there and start living the good life but there are a few things you need to do first. You’ll need to fill in paperwork and notify authorities in the UK and France, sort out healthcare, maybe inheritance planning, savings, tax and whole host of fun things. Before you leave the UK, check this list to see what needs to be done: Get form P85 from Revenue and Customs, fill it in and return it. It notifies the tax authorities that you are leaving the country and helps ensure that you’ll be taxed appropriately. If you’re retired, request an S1 Form. Set up a mail redirection if you know where you’ll be living in France or to an address in the UK that can forward mail on to you in a batch. Inform your local GP and dentist that you are leaving so they can take you off their books. Request a State pension forecast: if you’re going to live in France longterm or forever and may not return to the UK before you become eligible for your pension. check-state-pension Notify the Pension Service of your new address so they’ll know how to contact you. international-pension-centre Notify your personal or company pension trustees of your new address.
