I have a dutch Drivers licence and it needs to get replaced. However, the prefecture in Nice send me to Grasse and the sous-prefecture in Grasse sends me to Nice. I've even stopped by in Grasse and called the head of the department in Nice, but they each send me to the other party. Does anyone have any idea how to get a new valid drivers licence?

HELP URGENT HELP-I am writing because in September 2004 I agreed a contract with an accountant to buy a property in France. I had gone to the accountant because I needed to buy the property in a certain manner as part of a personal pension fund. In the eleventh hour this was not possible as under the laws of France, the country does not accept private trusts. As a result the property had to be bought with cash which was difficult but achieved.I was not happy with the service and wrote them a letter to this effect but not until Spring. I also did not settle the bill because I was not able to. I assumed that although this would not be the end of the matter there would be more discourse but I did not hear from them until now just over a year later.They have just been in contact and have said that under the statute oflimitations for contracts, as a year has passed that I will have to pay nowand in full regardless of any dispute.I have said that I will pay a proportion of their bill; at least 33% and infact I would pay up to 50% to en the matter.Is this the case and can anyone provide any information.The bailiff has just contacted me again, explaining that if I do not agree to settle the bill immediately, he will bring the Police on Monday under administrative procedure; so it is all very stressful.ChrisW

I have heard that lots of people set up English companies so that they can work in France, because it is easier and cheaper especially is you don't know how successful the business will be, or only expect a small revenue. I am thinking here about professional services such as financial advisor, or business consultant. Has anyone had any good or bad experience in this matter.

Is it my imagination or were there lots of shops open today? Are the French getting commercial? Used to be that there was nothing open on a Bank Holiday! Mind you, as most people took yesterday off as well I suppose some things never change....
