I’m in the process of enrolling as self employed and am halfway through creating my account at impots.gouv.fr.
I’m through to the stage where I need to input my bank details and the page has the following message:
Vous devez transmettre à votre établissement bancaire, directement et SANS DELAI,
le “mandat interentreprises” qu’il vous sera proposé d’éditer à la fin de la procédure.
A défaut de RECEPTION de ce MANDAT AVANT tout PAIEMENT de taxes ou d’impôts
auto-liquidés, votre banque rejetterait le télépaiement, et votre facture serait donc impayée.
Si votre établissement bancaire n’est pas éligible aux opérations SEPA / B2B, l’édition du
mandat ne vous sera pas proposée
Does anyone know what this is / where I get this?
The site also doesn’t seem to recognise my IBAN number for some reason…
Thanks for any insight!
Hi Emily and welcome - it’s simply a direct debit authority that you need to sign and forward to your bank. You’ll get a copy to download at the end of your registration process.
Sorry but no idea why your IBAN wouldn’t be recognised unless it’s wrong.
Thanks Simon! That’s really helpful re: the direct debit authority.
I’ve no clue why my IBAN and BIC aren’t recognising either - I’ve re-typed them a few times and still no luck! The IBAN number doesn’t fill all the boxes, but is definitely my full IBAN number (there are two empty boxes at the end but I assume this is because they can be longer in other countries?)
There is a box that says ‘Précision (facultatif)’ but I’ve left this blank
No probs! For info French IBAN’s are 27 alphanumeric characters long and ‘facultatif’ means optional.
Thank you - yep mine is 27 characters long!
Have sent a pic over to a French friend to see if they can figure out what I’ve filled in wrong
Could be the country recognition letters at the start it will not accept FR think that it is EN or something similar, had this problem myself.
Aren’t there 2 additional letters that you may need to end of your Iban, the cle.
My account is French so the IBAN begins with FR!
Yeah - it’s asked me to fill those out at the beginning.
This is the format:
Identification Code (BIC)*
Code Pays: FR
Clé IBAN: 2 digits
IBAN: 23 digits / letters combo
(total 27 digits / letters)
BIC: normally 8 to 11 letters / digits combo
Hmm that’s exactly what I’ve done!
Appreciate your help with this - I’ll see if anyone at impots.gouv.fr might be able to shed any light…
So is mine Emily, but is there a little box that comes before you start entering the IBAN, could be the code pays which kept catching me out anyway best if you go to the impots.
