We moved to France last year and have only just realised that we need to do a tax return.
The only income we have is our interest earned on our accounts in Australia.
I have printed off Form 2047 and 2042.
France and Australia have a double taxation treaty. We have paid tax on some of our interest earned.
As it is hopefully a straightforward tax return, we would like to do it ourselves. The accountants fees that we have come across so far seem quite high.
What I would like to know is where we put in the interest income earned and where we put the amount already taxed. Also any other items that we need to note on the form (apart from name, address, etc).
Are there any other forms we need to submit? I believe that we need to provide all our bank details for Australia and a RIB for our French bank account.
I am also aware that we need to convert the Australian amount into the Euro amount at the time of earning.
I think that income on interest is now part of your normal income?? Also, I read somewhere that if you are new to France ie within the last 3 years that there is a deduction limit (check box 6QW).
Any help would be much appreciated.
