Hello all.  My wife and I are American citizens who will soon be retired and need to establish residence in France, as we live in Paris more than 183 days per year.  Can anyone recommend a lawyer or financial adviser to help us through the process of entering the French tax system as residents? Or does anyone have experience with these matters who would be interested in advising us.  Thanks.

Hello everyone,I'm a student who just moved to Paris and I have a few questions that I can't find answers to online, I'm hoping that you'll be able to help me. What's an avis d'imposition? I need to set up a bank account for my wages from my Saturday job but the bank need to see an avis d'imposition and I don't know what that is. How do I file my taxes? I'm English and I've never had to file taxes before in my life. If anyone could point me in the direction of a webpage, preferably in English, that could explain things to me then I would be eternally grateful. I'm not even sure who I could ask. Thank you!

Hi,In march i will enter in a new house, in a colocation, and asked for an individual contract or lease. The agency told me that this is not possible in Paris, but in my previous coloc i had it. Is it possible to stipulate an agreement between flatmates to go around the problem and ward myself in the eventuality of one of the others not paying their rent?Thanks

Does anyone have any advice about unfair pay? I have found out that my boss systematically pays men more than women for the same work. It is a franchise of a large company, we don't really have HR. Has anyone been in this situation before?

Help! I need to renew my Long Stay Visa. Has anyone done this recently? I have looked at all the information I can find on Angloinfo and the net but cant find specific information about the how to. Do I just go to the prefecture that I was granted my original one at? Do I need an appointment - if so - how do I get one? I imagine I will need updated proof of financial, residential information etc? However, do I require all the details updated ie new birth certificate, police check etc. I have seven weeks until this one expires.... With the memory still fresh of the sleepless nights and stress obtaining the original any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hello, if anyone could be so kind to help me in my situation? I am on a long term salarié visa in Paris which expires in July. Does anyone know if it’s possible to find another CDI during that time? People have mentioned that it’s risky and that the prefecture could refuse you. Anyone have experience in this? Would really appreciate the help :)

Hi all. We're currently buying a house in France - or rather, our company is buying it. The current owner is English, and we are English, but the seller's notaire is insisting that our Articles of Association must be translated into French - it's going to cost around 900 euros. Does anyone know if this is really necessary? Thanks!

Hi all,My name is Jose and I have a few questions in regards of a bank account I have in Paris.The story is that I lived with a student visa in Paris for over a year. I opened an account in Societe General bank and I left Paris before my visa expired thinking I was going to come back - which I did not.My account as far as I'm concern is open, I used to have a Visa Debit card.My questions are:1.- How can I close the account from abroad? I am afraid that I'm paying monthly commissions and since it was a while ago that I left, I am being charged for lots of money even-though I haven't used it since I left France.2.- If I didn't close my account and I go back to Paris to visit, there is any chance I get detained or prosecuted for this?Thanks in advance,Jose

Does anybody know how I could go about closing my bank account with LaBanquePostale? I'm moving back to Australia and my internet banking is locked so there isn't much point in me keeping it open. I've looked around the internet a fair bit to find something and I did see mention of simply sending some kind of letter of termination ? But there was nothing overly specific. Thanks

We are asking for some suggestions about how, under theFrench system, one can deal with a serious economic loss due to fraud andmisrepresentation by a retail store owner.  We recently contracted for and paid a marble supplier inParis for nearly 19,000 Euro’s worth of Italian, Calacatta pattern marble.  The marble that was delivered  was an type of Carrara that sells for nearly ½the price of the marble we ordered. When we queried the store owner about theobvious gross appearance difference between what we ordered (the Calacatta sampledisplayed in the shop) and the bland, nearly patternless stone that wasdelivered,  the shop owner assured us, infront of witnesses, that it was normal for the veining in the not to developand darken until the stone dried. We naively believed him.  The stone that was supplied does not fit the characteristicsof Calacatta marble, but rather is characteristic of Carrara Bianco. Weverified that what was delivered was the inferior quality Carrara Bianco marbleby having a sample of what we received evaluated at one of Carrera quarries inItaly.     The supplier is refusing to admit that he failed to supplyus with anything that remotely resembles the example of Calacutta marble playedin his shop and that he deliberately lied to us about the substantial veiningcharacteristic of Calacatta marble developing as the stone dried.  What advice can anyone offer about that it would be appropriateto do under these circumstances given the French approach to consumer fraud?Are there any consumer protection agencies with whom a complaint can be filed? Hasanyone had experience with an English speaking Advocat that they can recommend?Is anyone reading this appeal an English speaking attorney with experience thatwould be useful for us? Sincerely,Richard
