Hi all, I'm sure I'm not the only one with this chicken-and-egg problem:I'm moving to France and would like to open a bank account, contract water, electricity and internet services for the apartment I'm buying. To get water, electricity and internet, I'm being told I need a French IBAN. And to open a bank account, I'm being told to present a utility bill. How to get around this? Any tipps on opening a bank account?Many thanks!
Hi, I'm new to this site, and was hoping someone could give me some advice. I'm an american w/ indefinite leave to remain in the UK. Since I've got that stamp in my passport I've lived more in france. I'm pretty sure that stamp doesn't give me any rights in France. I would really like to start my own business as a charpentier under the new "auto entrepeneur" class. I was hoping someone could tell me if this is possible, and give me some advice on how to go about doing it. Many thanks Casey
Just read my e-mail from AI today and the info on banking is fantasic, to get the mail you have to be a member of the site but I can recommend it, you are not over run with junk but a weekly mail which is relevant to living here and inobtrusive! Just wanted to say thanks and let other prople know how it works.
