I have accepted a role for an Accountancy role in Paris which I will start in the middle of January and I had a few questions which I hope some of you may be able to shed some light on.
Many thanks in advance.
I’ve been informed to use the sight “Se Loger” & “PAP” to find rental accommodation.
Does anyone have any other recommendations?
Do viewings routinely take place at weekends?
Is it ever normal to take on a lease without a viewing?
I understand a guarantor with a French address is necessary to rent a property. Is this the case , will it be sufficient to put down the name of my employer?
Is a French bank account necessary to start renting a property and are there any other requirements such as this to take out a lease?
In order to open a French bank account, is it necessary to have a French address first? I can see this being rather circular should a French bank account be necessary to take out a lease.
I currently hold a Revolut card which has a ‘Euro Account’ under IBAN. How far does an IBAN account go in France, can it be put down similar to a French bank account?
As I will be moving in January, i will have the final 3 months of the 2019/20 tax year in France and the prior 9 months in the U.K…
Does anyone have any experience of the transition from working in the U.K. to France from a tax perspective. Is there a process I need to go through to avoid Double Taxation?
If savings income is still made in the U.K. once I’m situated in France how is this taxed in France, if at all?
Any advice on good process for tax would be appreciated.
Mobile Phone Contracts
Are there any good price comparison websites in France for mobile phone contracts?
