If you are planning to move to another country outside the European Economic Area, you may wish to make use of a specialist expatriate services company to facilitate your move if you do not already have a support network in your chosen country of residence. For a start, you will need to modify your existing insurance arrangements so that you have appropriate cover not only for yourself but also for your family, your possessions and your new property. You should move your life and health insurance to providers that will cover you within your new country of residence and need to insure your vehicle with a provider registered within that country.
You will need to review your financial arrangements, because your investments and tax plans will all have to be adjusted to suit the regulations of the country in which you are planning to live. If you have children of school age, you may need to restructure your investment plans to include education fee planning, since the costs of education are likely to rise. As there is so much to take care of, many expatriates hire an expatriate services firm to facilitate their move and take care of the financial and taxation arrangements. Of course, if you are in a position to manage a number of different companies, it is worth also shopping around to find the best insurance products and the best overseas finance and investment companies yourself before committing to a firm that manages everything.
