As a British expat living in a foreign country, it is natural for you to have concerns about your finances, the right way to invest them and safeguard them effectively. Given that you are in a country that is not your own, there may be a number of aspects in the prevailing financial environment that you are not aware of. Even those British expats who have lived for a number of years in the country may be unfamiliar with all the nuances of the marketplace. This can prove to be a costly lapse if you invest your money in the wrong assets or even if you time your investment wrong. However, it is easy to eliminate this risk simply by partnering with a reputed, expert financial advisor like David Reed from the Oscar Winson Group.
Backed by the extensive marketplace experience of Director David Reed, Oscar Winson has helped several expats manage their finances most efficiently, multiply their savings and enjoy the unique advantages of the foreign country’s special financial market advantages without increasing exposure to risk.
Addressing the tax question
Tax planning is very important irrespective of whether you are living in your home country or you are an expat. It is critical to take the right action at the right time to ensure that your hard earned money does not unnecessarily go into the taxman’s pockets instead of helping you live a quality life. This is relatively easy when you are in your home country and you have access to information about the latest tax rules. Since you have filed your tax returns for years on end here, you are likely to be quite familiar with what is to be done and how and when. This allows you to plan ahead to cut down your tax bill to the maximum without circumventing the law in any way.
However, you definitely cannot have this ease with the tax rules in your adopted country. Owing to this, you may end up not knowing how to plan ahead and invest in tax saving instruments that can trim your total payables. You may be unaware of tax limits and constraints and this means you fail to take full advantage of all available tax rebates. In effect, without an experienced tax advisor guiding you, you could be practically giving away your hard earned money in tax.
Protecting your interests and safeguarding your investments
You have worked hard all your life and built up a nest egg that is your financial cushion for your retirement years. You want to safeguard this nest egg at all costs because your future quality of life depends upon it. If you have substantial assets built up over the years, you also want to ensure that you can pass them on to your heirs. All of this is possible in the most efficient way only when you have comprehensive knowledge about the various laws and regulations that pertain to these assets. While this kind of familiarity may be impossible for you to achieve, we make it our business to know everything about these aspects at Oscar Winson.
