I live in SW France and am about to apply for my first Carte de Sejour having recently moved to France before Brexit. I have a newly set up Chambre d'Hotes micro-entrepreneur business which i intend to start as soon as Covid restrictions allow. Since the business is brand new and I don't have any bookings yet, I am not sure as to how to proove "effectiveness of the activity" which is one of the demands for the Carte de Sejour. I ran a sucessful Aibnb in the UK fo the past 5 years so I have experience but I need to download a supporting document and not sure how to proceed. Any ideas?
Good morning, I have an EU passport but my husband doesn't. We have been told that he must live in France for a minimum of 5 years before he's entitled to residency. Does his ownership of a home in France change that ruling - i.e does he have any residency rights if he owns property in France? Thanks, Judy Douglas.
My three daughters have to return sensitive papers back to my notaire dealing with my house sale and have been told the papers MUST be sent by post as well as email. They have all been sent by email and are now questioning having to send by post. When I asked the notaire why this should be she just said “it’s the law”. Is this correct please??
Hi. We have been hoping to return the rest of our furniture and personal belongings to the UK this year but COVID-19 and a brain tumour have left us self isolating. Can anyone please give me some advice on how we find out what paperwork, tariffs and charges we will need to have. Tried HM Gov UK but a bit of a blank. Many thanks.
Im sure this has already been covered. Ive downloaded the correct cerfa form on the Urssaf site, but this only allows for change of address or activities...and one completed, I thought it would upload directly back with the site but no...am I supposed to print it and post it to ? or pdf and email it or upload it where?Ive also changed banks and cannot find where I make this change.Any advice or direction most welcome. thanks
Hi, I am currently a resident in the uk, where I rent a flat, pay my bills and taxes and have a full time job. Due to covid, I temporarily came to France from where I am still able to work remotely for my current job.in this situation, are there any issues regarding tax residence? Is there a maximum period of time I am able to stay in France without incurring on any legal/tax irregularity? Thanks
My husband and I got D visas from the French Embassy in Washington DC, so that we could live in France from February 2020 until November. Because of the virus conditions in the US we'd like to extend that visa for another couple months, perhaps into January. How would we go about this? Anyone have any tips? We are living in Sarlat.
having worked in France as a Chartered Surveyor since 2005 I have this week received a demand for payment from an organisation by the name of CIPAV - never heard of them before.It appears it is a government organisation demanding payment from independent professionals in addition to the URSSAF cotisations I have been paying since registration in 2005!A search on the Internet suggests this is a badly run state organisation which has resulted in demonstrations across France due to ridiculous financial demands being made.I have asked my accountant for help but if anyone has any history on this organisation it would be helpful.
