Blevins Franks has been providing specialist, professional financial advice to British expatriates across Europe for over forty years. Our expertise covers cross-border tax, estate planning, pensions and investment management to offer a genuinely holistic approach to financial planning under one roof.

Our local advisers live and work throughout France, and have in-depth, personal knowledge of the complex French tax regime and how it interacts with UK taxation. They can help you take advantage of tax-efficient opportunities in France and ensure you use arrangements to suit your family’s unique circumstances.

This includes:
• Tax mitigation – making sure you have a clear understanding of your cross-border tax position and liabilities, and advising how your investments and estate planning can best be structured to minimise taxes.
• Estate planning – helping ensure your wealth passes to your chosen heirs at the right time in the most tax-efficient way possible.
• Investments – establishing your personal risk profile and objectives to design a suitable, diversified investment strategy for you.
• Pensions – our in-house UK pension specialists carefully analyse your options, including QROPS, to recommend how best to structure your pension arrangements to meet your needs.
• Trusts – providing a comprehensive range of trustee and corporate services through Blevins Franks Trustees.

Blevins Franks also supports British nationals through local offices in Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Malta, Monaco and the UK.

Fed up of not understanding?

When you go to France, it is not easy to calculate how much of an upheaval the move from the UK will be. Dealing with health issues, applications, letters, internet, schools and the local ‘Mairie’ all can be a little overwhelming.

The funny thing is I speak fluent French, like a native and it never dawned on me how the non French speakers might feel; the frustration, the agony, the isolation of it all. The last thing you need is someone giving you some moral lecture on the fact you’re in France and should make the effort to speak French.
Where does it stop I thought, for me I know when it stopped, the constant headaches stopped because I got so organised that the French agencies just know you know when you have the answers, so they don’t mess you about.

It is hard to let people know what we can do, the help we have can give, the money (and we mean thousands of Euros) that we have sometime saved clients in tax and contributions.
It is even more difficult to let them know of how professional we are.

The tools we use;
Our business is cloud based so we can go anywhere, but usually we can reach our clients by phone- the customer experience is and has to be near on effortless for our clients so we created a portal for our customers.
They can ask us to help, chat to us, and even be kept informed through the knowledge base created just for them.
It is not about being an expert or even coming to your house, it is about listening, then about knowing.
The team has a knowledge base of just fewer than 9000 categories and sub categories each with their FAQ and a search engine.

We are a dedicated team and we care about our clients.
If you subscribe to us for a small monthly or annual fee; you, your partner and children become a member, valued clients where we will help you with translations, schools, taxes, contributions, health. So, if this is just what you are looking for, go to: and fill in the form, we will call you back and see how we can help you.
