I’ve joined today. I’m considering early retirement options - here to meet some likeminded people and maybe close out some assumptions I’ve made about France.
So that I can plan I’m looking for “sticky” threads on typical budget considerations both in terms of regular spend and one off or regular taxation.
I am 49 my wife 52 (shhh…) we will be looking at relocation buying a property with a mix of funds from UK house sale and other cash savings. We have SIPP pensions which we plan to draw down from 55 - so need to be clear on tax implications for either one off draw down or incremental draw down.
Conscious of healthcare costs - would like more info on this and what might change if we become accepted as residents into the French state healthcare.
Planning steps or milestones which need to be passed through to transition from UK to France.
Also I am not considering a move because I hate UK more because I love France and have finite resources
