Kentingtons - Financial Advice in France
Kentingtons’ service is providing tax and investment advice, in combination, to private individuals who are moving from the UK to France and to those already living in France (though our service is open to all nationalities).
Chances are, if you have capital in the UK or offshore, you will be voluntarily paying more tax than you need to and will be unaware of all the investment options available that work to your advantage as a resident of France.
There are considerable advantages to becoming a client of Kentingtons. Kentingtons are registered in France as "Conseil en Gestion de Patrimoine Certifiée", basically a qualified adviser on ones worldwide assets.
This means we can advise on and assist with all personal financial matters, i.e. areas such as wealth tax, income tax, succession law, marriage regimes, capital gains tax and even guidance on the French health system. Our consultants have legal qualification and training demonstrating "compétence juridique appropriée", or appropriate legal knowledge, allowing us to offer quality guidance on French fiscal law.
This distinction sets us apart from those who can offer counsel on investment strategy, but are not qualified to guide you on the financial consequences of what they are advising.
We are also unique in that we do not try and cover lots of different countries. France is unique in many ways and requires a specialist unique perspective. Since France is our sole focus, we would argue that we know it better than anybody, giving us the edge in giving you the very best guidance.
Kentingtons are not accountants, thus tax administration is not our business (meaning we do not charge for it), however we may offer support to our investment clients, as an added service. Kentingtons has clients throughout France and in the UK. We have offices in both countries and our consultants visit areas where we are not represented locally.
People with significant financial assets tend to need more comprehensive guidance and we offer our clients the very best ongoing service and attention, so the Kentingtons service is exclusive to those with €250,000 of financial assets or more. As independent advisers of our stature and experience, nothing is impossible; Kentingtons works alongside the world's leading financial institutions to bring you a truly world class service, offering our clients strategies from the very simple to the highly complex, from secure to adventurous.
Our objective is to make your life as simple as possible, allowing you to relax knowing that your financial affairs are legal and in order and that it is your money that is working hard, so you don't have to.
