Cost of Living for British Expats

The past few years has seen seismic events both in the UK and across the world which have had and continue to have a significant impact on the cost of living for everyone.

We conducted a survey amongst British expats to understand how the current cost of living crisis is affecting people with ties to the UK. 

Cost of Living Report for British Expats 2023

In late 2022 we conducted a survey of 200 British expats who maintain some ties with the UK to find out how the cost of living crisis in the UK and globally is affecting people whose lives span two or more different countries.

Using the results of the survey, we have created our latest report, How Rising Living Costs Are Impacting Expats’ Financial Choices in 2023, which explores the impact of various global and local events have been influencing expat finances, life decisions and mental well-being.

Our report provides insight, analysis and guidance covering the following subjects:

  • Property
  • Tax
  • Finances and retirement
  • Mental health

During this period of global uncertainty, its more important than ever for people with complex financial situations to ensure they’re making the right choices to secure their future and continue making the best possible decisions.

Read our summary of the report, which includes insight and essential tips for expats, and provides a general overview of the the key issues facing British expats in 2023.
