What's a decent salary to be expecting from an employer in France? I do realise that in this current financial climate any offer is a good offer but, I had an interview and have now received an offer which is the lowest out of the stated 20000 - 25000 euros per annum.Obviously I won't be accepting the first offer but what do people think would a decent offer?Has anyone any experience in working for a french emplyer?

We are having problems with our architect. We were informed in September by his assistant that our planning permission had been submitted; subsequently we have found out that this is not the case. His assistant is no longer with him We cannot contact him - he will not answer emails, his office is almost permanently closed and he does not answer the phone. We managed to contact him once and he is insisting that the balance of his account is paid before he submits our dossier; however we are unwilling to do so until we find out where we stand. We have builders waiting to start work, but until we are granted planning permission we cannot do anything. Can anybody suggest a solicitor - or other mediator - who can sort this out for us? Many thanks
Do you need permission to dig a duckpond and put up a duck house in your garden? I've decided I want to get ducks, but I don't want to do it if I have to put in for planning permission for the duck house and pool security for the pond and so on. The garden is big and there are no neighbours to be troubled Thanks
Can someone help please - bought a house here in October 06 and have a regular influx of paperwork ,some of which we manage to interpret and some we dont but the latest is beyond me. A form marked DECLARATION Modele H1 dropped through our UK door with a covering letter ; it carries the title IMPOTS LOCAUX and is stamped from the "Centre des Impots Foncier" . It is a 4 page document in a fetching shade of blue and white , looks really official but thats as much as I can grasp. Are we in trouble already for drinking too much wine or do I attempt to fill it in and hope to give the correct answers. Anyone recognise the description and can offer help we will be really gratefull Thanks
HM Customs and Excise after much deliberating have decided that "Yes" I was employed when I lived in England but due to the role I was in, I was responsible for paying my own tax and as such, they've presented me with a huge tax bill I can't pay. I've made an offer to pay so much per month which they've said is not acceptable and although I have the opportunity of further appeal, they keep threatening handing my case over to the French Authorities. Does anyone know what would happen if this were to be done? It's really quite worrying!
Hi, Has anyone found a solution to the UK residency requirement for opening a bank/building society account in the UK?I'm a British citizen and used to have a Barclay's account until they told me I that, as a non-UK resident I needed to move my account to Jersey (their "international branch"). To cut a long story short, the Jersey service was poor and the last straw came with the announcement that, to "enhance their service", they would be charging £40 if the balance dipped below £2000!! I closed the account, as my main account is in France anyway. But with children in the UK etc. it would be SO useful to have an account over there, even with a building society, etc.Any suggestions would be very welcome!
We are contemplating a move to the Morvan but are concerned about the draconian measures to exclude those foreigners who are not of retirement age from participating in the health system when their E160 expires. Does anyone know any more about it and what will be the consequences? It may affect our decision to move just yet.
