Key Takeaways:

  • All private pension income is taxable. However, the Double Taxation Treaty does state that the same income cannot be taxed twice.
  • ISA’s are a UK savings product but are only tax free if you reside in the UK. If you live in France you have to declare the interest on your French tax form.
  • Your worldwide income is subject to tax assessment for French residents. However UK rental income receives a credit for tax already assumed to have been paid through your French tax return.
