I would like to become a micro-entrepreneur, do I have to declare my takings on my tax form, if so where do I declare it, and do I deduct my outgoings from my takings beforehand. I am very confused. Can I get any information anywhere regarding this subject?? Any info would be appreciated.

We have heard that from 2012 in France new regulations will apply to cafes etc regarding the availability of disabled toilet facilities. We have a small tea shop, max 20 seated and currently have toilet facilities upstairs. Does anyone have any further information on how this may affect us. Thanks

Just a word of warning, I (& 3 other couples I know) have been caught by the same problem, the Centre des Impots has sent the demands to a previous address (in 3 cases, UK addresses, in 1 rented accommodation in France). Without a doubt we all missed a trick somewhere, although who knows what since we have all been to the Centre des Impots & completed several forms. Anyway, we haven't had our demands, and would probably have sat here 'fat, dumb and happy' thinking they came later in the year - thereby missing the deadline for payment. Thought I'd post this as a word of warning - if you haven't had it, give them a ring!!

Can anyone recommend a notaire or lawyer to sort out the complex inheritance issues that exist in France. Ive had preliminary discussions but it seems on my death my estate goes to my children bypassing my partner. Can this be altered without it altering complex tax issues? Thanks
