Offshore Spanish-Compliant Bonds
People who are living and enjoying a new life abroad in Spain often prefer to keep hold of UK investments such as ISAs and premium bonds but the question a lot of people fail to ask themselves is whether they make financial sense for residency in their chosen country.
Premium bonds for example, have been around for a long time to provide safety for people’s money. Whilst this may be true, in some respects, they often provide little or no actual interest.
This means that unless you’re one of the lucky few winners they’re eroding your capital for inflation over time.
Obviously the key attraction of premium bonds and ISAs is that they are tax free in the UK but what a lot of people don’t know is that they are fully taxable in most EU countries, meaning that the benefits to holding them are minimal.
There are far more tax efficient investments available to residents of EU countries such as offshore Spanish-compliant bonds that provide not only easier reporting on assets but also give you extremely favourable tax treatment on your money, often providing tax-free growth.
