Hi i'm new to this forum.
Have seen many comments re running a business in France and i agree its not the easiest country to start a business for many reasons other people on this forum have already stated.
If you decide to do it, i suggest you might wish to focus on working on R&D projects as there are funding/ tax breaks on this, and in France tax friendly work is organised around research and its ironic that after this research is done , the business usually goes outside of France due to the high social costs of running a business there.
I was encouraged to start my business in France via the local business enterprise after being made redundant from a Swiss company (live close to the Swiss border in France)
Chomage is covered by the Shengen agreement, cross border.
When i started my business through Accre, i was told that i would not be eligable for chomage for a further 5 years after the initial Accre grant date?
I have just dissolved my Sarl business (operating for 8 Years)(1 man band ) due to a supplier breaking his contract.With this loss of supply, i could not continue supporting the high running costs of the business .
My business is now officially closed , and i was going to start the proceedure of claiming chomage until i can start a new consultancy business in Switzerland early next year.
My accountant has just advised me that i cannot claim any chomage as i was a director of the company ?.Is this true or are their circumstances where this rule is not applicable ?
I would appreciate some feed back if anybody can give me some guidance on this ?
