Hi, I need to complete a CERFA form to get a police certificate for security clearance in the UK (for a job). I am unsure what codes I need to enter when it asks for a District Number (Paris/Lyon)? and a Department Number? (I was born in the UK) Can anybody help please?
I am trying to renew my passport but am having difficulty with the photos!! I have spent 20 euros so far. Every shot is just of my head. The guidance notes say that the photos should be head and shoulders. Try as I might, shoulders are always missing and head size is too large for stipulated size. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution? Any advice will be very gratefully received.
Hi, all, and Happy New Year. I have had some work done recently. The company has a French address and Siret Number. The business has run off back to the Uk and not completed the work. I have checked the Siret number online and get no registration. If a company de registers is the number removed or does the status change against the number. If that is the case I can only imagine it's a false number. Any guidance would be well received. Kind regards
I have been living in France now for nearly 4yrs and I am 70 this year, but I have not done anything to my driving license since arriving. Am I in trouble? and where do I go to change the Iicense for a French one? Will I have to sit a driving test? Do I need to do anything at all? I was stopped once by a gendarmerie for not stopping at a stop sign, he examined the license and said nothing, was I lucky? or was he negligent? Help please
Can anyone help us. Out of the blue we received a letter from a French insurance company saying that we had been involved in an accident in a city we have never visited - in a car we have never owned or registered. We have now received four letters, and have replied to all of them saying that we have a second home in France, but have never been involved in an accident, never been to the city mentioned, never owned a French registered car. The correspondence is just going back and forth and they are taking no notice of anything we say - what do you recommend we do?
We have a contract with EDF for the production of energy through solar panels. The date we need to read the Linky meter and submit the readings for our invoice is in 2 days. I noticed last week that the figures haven't changed for months despite the hot weather so assume the meter is not working. For the last week I have spent countless hours on the phone trying to get an engineer out but no-one wants to take responsibility. OA-solaires say it's not their problem and referred me to EDF/Enerdis. I have rung 8 different numbers but no-one can help, they keep telling me to ring Enerdis Customer Services, which i've done on numerous occasions. I have emailed their customer services department twice, no response. Our normal revenue from the panels is 2000 euros pa so I'm very worried that this year we'll be getting almost nothing as oa-solaires will only accept the current reading. Has anyone experienced similar problems? Many thanks for any advice.
I translated a copy of my birth certificate and sent it to the RSI for my carte vital, who have informed me that it needs to be translated by a 'traducteur assermente'. Has anybody had to do this and if so, can you recommend somebody please? This has been going on for over a year and now I'm getting bored of it! Thanks
Has anyone had a letter from the tax people with a penalty as I understand it as I have paid these taxes in a different way.It seems to be a penalty of 300 euro for EACH - as I received two letters- identical, but confusing as I am unsure what i have done wrong as I have always paid on time.Incidentally, these taxes are now similar to the tax on our UK home which is worth quite a bit more.We are trying to sell the French house- but no takers so far - and such tax does make it even more urgent!Can anyone help please?
Having bought things from Cdiscount's website I regularly receive all sorts of e-mail shots.Today's is quite interesting as it offers the chance to sign up with them as an electricity supplier, I attach the webpage below.Out of interest, has anyone signed up with them? If so, how did it go? It seems that they do all the legwork re. cancelling your existing contract with your existing supplier (i.e. EDF) rather like Uswitch in the UK.Certainly a 15% reduction in electricity bills could be quite interesting!
