Newsletter Issue 95: 01/02/2011

Welcome to the latest issue of the French Property Newsletter.

We lead in this issue with the news that pension lump sums will now be liable to income tax.

It is all part of the squeeze on tax reliefs and exemptions being carried out by the French government.

However, not all pensions are affected and the rate of taxation is fairly modest, particularly if you are on an existing low tax rate.

We can only be grateful for small mercies.
