I have a question about cotisations for 'gîte' activity which is my husband's only income. Effectively, it is a part of our house that we gave a seperate entrance and let out short term via Airbnb and Booking.com.
Sam is an AE and we have been paying the higher rate of cotisations since summer 2014 under the impression that the activity came under 'provision of services' rather than 'Sales'.
I see here that it is not the case - are there any exceptions (i.e. the exact activity declared upon creation of the AE - I have to look it up but we may have put it as 'chambres meublés'?)
Dare I ask if it would be worth trying to claim back the overpaid cotisations? Will the authorities just accept it if we start paying the lower rate next quarter, after 2.5 years paying the higher rate?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
