Would Brexit change tax rules?

I am unclear what may happen about taxation in either a deal or no-deal Brexit scenario? We are taxable in France but our income is from the UK. Would the UK continue not taxing our income as long as we are declaring it in France?

There is no reason for this to change as it is governed by the UK/France double tax treaty, which is not affected by Brexit.

However, there could be other issues with UK income, such as receiving payments into a French bank account from certain UK private pension providers.

In the worst-case scenario, a solution would be to have it paid into an account in the UK and then transfer it.

There are also question marks over uprating of UK state pensions in the case of no-deal, though the UK promises this will be done for the tax year 2019-20.
