Good ol' French taxation

I'm hoping that someone can give me some advice on how to declare money received as a pension lump sum. This is tax free in the UK but in France I'm pretty sure that the government will want a piece of the action.

So, if anyone out there has had this experience (I'm probably not the first) or knows someone ,or an organisation who i can speak to then i would appreciate the info
