New Job, new taxes, old headache... FRIENDS of ours are about to start a job in France as caretakers of a property... the British based owners will pay them 1000 a month between them plus ALL expenses like rent and water and gas etc... there's no work as such involved - just the general 'minding' of the property...
the owners are happy, willing indeed, to pay all necessary taxes & social costs... but have been told this will be in the region of 870 per month!!!
can this be right? would it be better to be paid in the UK and then declare it end of year in France?
almost 100% tax seems crazy to me? - if you are emplying someone at such a small wage how can it be justifiable to then pay so much in social costs...?
i'm utterly ignorant in this sort of stuff and just kindly said i'd ask my lovely sfn friends for some 'broad stroaks' type advice before they all investigate further
