Transfer Of French Assets & Gifts

When contemplating a gift of French property or transferring a French asset, we strongly advise that you obtain legal advice at the outset in order to minimise tax liabilities where possible and avoid a course of action which could lead to expensive disputes later on.

In circumstances where there is a clear benefit to transferring or gifting French assets, or where there is a non-financial imperative for doing so, we can assist our clients through the process so that they understand the implications of their actions and fully understand the documentation they are signing.

The process for gifting French assets is considerably more complicated than in England, and the tax connotations are significantly different. We can assist you through the process in France and provide advice on the implications in France and in the UK.
