Useful and well-written blog post: http://grenouillebouillie.wordpress.com/2012/10/01/explaining-geonpi-to-non-french-entrepreneurs/
I like that blog. Having decided to move here and done all my calculations I felt that we could by working as an auto-entrepreneur we could live quite comfortably and receive health care. Having been self employed in the UK for 10 years and earning around the minimum wage level I am used to that. But with the taxes?? Now I am worried!!
Ho hum, let's hope the law never comes to pass.
