Expat Brexit (Frankfurt)
Millions of British expats across the world are anxiously waiting to learn the result of the UK’s Brexit referendum, with concerns over the possibility of a plunging pound running high.
Worries about changes in the way they are taxed, domicile issues and the possibility that British expats living in Europe may see their UK pensions “frozen”, the way they are in certain other non-EU countries, are also on the minds of expatriates, as voters back home mark their ballots.
Experts say their choice is certain to have an impact whether they opt to Remain or to Leave – not just across the Eurozone but around the world. Few are likely to be as affected as retired British expats currently living in expat communities, and relying on pensions that are paid to them in pounds sterling.
