French Tax returns

Calculating and paying taxes is always difficult – or is certainly not easy – however the French view it as their way of contributing to their national and local government and guaranteeing their way and quality of life.

But even though we’d all prefer to keep our hard-earned money in our pockets, paying tax is what we have to do and for many people submitting a tax return is at best a chore – and for those who are not confident in the French language, can be positively daunting. However, submitting your French tax return need not be a stressful experience and that’s where we come in.

Fiscaly are a bi-lingual firm, speaking both French and English, which means that all correspondence and conversations can be had in English. That’s right: we’ll ask questions in English, provide answers too in English, and help you through the process from start to finish.

This time of year is an important one in the run up to the income tax deadline (French income tax is called La Déclaration des Revenus), which this year is the 19th May. For submission of tax returns online, we are given a few more weeks to complete the paperwork, although the deadlines vary according to the department where you live.

Depending upon your financial situation, there may be various forms to complete but again our professional team is here to help you, and is also more affordable than you may think. We also offer a guaranteed response within 48 hours.

Don’t forget, you will need to declare all of your income and this includes any income you receive from the UK or any other source country, e.g. pensions or from renting a property in the UK. The Double Taxation Treaty between the France and UK means though that you won’t be taxed twice.

Give us a call today on +33 (0)9 81 09 00 15, and let us take the headache out of your tax and administration.
