and you may be aware that if you are going to employ staff that the "on costs" to be met by the employer are considerably higher than in the U. K.

The French authorities will charge penalties for non submission of Tax returns at a minimum rate of 10% of the Tax outstanding and apply other set charges for non declaration (for example of bank interest or rents received) as well as fines and penalties from HMRC in the U. K. - and of course the French and U. K. Tax offices now exchange information under a new E. U. treaty.

You may also be aware that if you own a property in France or are resident in France and have assets valued at more than €800,000 you may be liable for "wealth tax" - the Impôt de solidarité sur la fortune or ISF.There are a range of exemptions and exceptions but if you think you might be affected it may be well worth taking advice


Many "brit's" have bought second properties or holiday homes encouraged by "la vie francaise" but may not have considered the implications of Capital Gains Tax (plus value imposable) when these properties are sold in the future.

In fact both U K and French Capital Gains Tax may be charged and the calculated tax is deducted from the sales proceeds by the Notary before the funds are repatriated so it is important that all of the allowances and costs are considered in advance.
We offer a capital gains tax service where we liaise with your notary and provide a report detailing both the French and U K Capital gains tax
If you are U K resident then you will also be assessed for U K Capital Gains Tax and may have to pay the difference between the U K amount due and the French amount paid.
With a little foresight it is often possible to minimise your tax liability and we will be delighted to advise you on the amounts you can expect to pay
