Moving Abroad

Consider Gibraltar

Whether you are considering a move to Gibraltar, or to a more glamorous destination such as Monaco or Dubai, there is much planning to be done and many different issues to take into account. Should you buy property and sell your existing home? What should you consider as far as your property requirements are concerned? What taxes might apply to you, such as income, wealth, inheritance, or capital gains? Do you have a clear understanding of how these taxes will affect you? Moving your company to a new country and planning for your retirement raise even more questions and concerns.

Let Us Guide Your Move

The most important step is to seek professional advice from a firm that can take care of everything under one roof, from guiding you on how to become a resident for tax purposes and how local tax rules might benefit you, to providing you with a complete review of your savings and investments. At Fiduciary Wealth, we have the expertise and experience to guide you through the entire process.

We offer a "Free 5-Step Gibraltar Residency Assessment" (worth £750) to evaluate your current situation and determine the best residency option for you. To schedule your free assessment, please email us at or phone us on +350 200 50982.

Tax Considerations

What type of residency should you seek? This depends largely on the source of your income and your concerns about your existing tax regime. Do you have passive income that is lightly taxed? Do you want to protect your earnings from a high tax rate in your country of origin? What is your current net worth, and how much do you expect to earn in your new country of residence? The answers to these questions and more can help determine the residency status for which you should apply.

Corporate Concerns

Are you moving your base of operations to a new country, or opening a subsidiary? Will you move key employees or hire local residents? In addition to corporate tax laws, you must also consider insurance requirements, retirement plans , and other details to protect yourself, your employees, and your business. Perhaps you are a high earning executive with a unique skill set considering an offer from a company in your desired new country of residence. You might be able to take advantage of a special residency status only available to those who meet certain specific criteria.

Retirement Planning

What will you do about your current retirement plans? Recent pension reform in the UK means that there are many factors to consider when deciding whether to leave your pension in the UK or move it with you. Various options are available, all with different scheme rules and tax implications. Only a thorough review of your existing pension plan as well as your current and future financial picture can reveal which option is best suited to you.

What about domicile? If you remain UK domiciled, which is a totally different concept than residency, then your worldwide assets will be subject to UK IHT even if your new country of residence has no inheritance tax levy.

Ultimately, moving abroad requires you to develop a thorough understanding of the tax system in the country to which you are moving and how it affects you. Get it wrong, and it could be a costly mistake that you might live to regret. With so much at stake, seeking professional advice is not just an option, it is a necessity.

When contemplating retirement to Gibraltar last year I was drawn to the Fiduciary Wealth Website which I found well laid out, easy to navigate and thoroughly informative. Having left my contact details I was contacted by Paul Correa within a very short time and soon set up a face to face meeting in which the benefits of such a move and path to residency were clearly explained. The process was expertly handled by Paul and his team, keeping me informed of the progress every step of the way and always available for additional consultation as necessary. The residency service was accompanied by comprehensive financial advice without any pressure. Tax planning experts were on hand for complex international tax issues and meetings arranged in short order. I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Paul and his team to make the residency process completely stress-free and provide a one-stop shop for comprehensive service for anyone contemplating the move to this delightful location.

Fiduciary handled the residency application with efficiency and I was very pleased with the service I received.


In considering my residency options I visited the Gibraltar residency website of Fiduciary Wealth and subsequently contacted Andrew Hosking. The advice I received was second to none and Andrew and his team could not have been more helpful, fully explaining the process and making all the necessary arrangements to secure my residency certificate and assist with tax and ancillary matters relating to my move to Gibraltar.
