Hello all, and sorry if we are trawling over the same old nuggets you’ve answered ad infinitum.
We purchased our property in 16390 on the 14th September 2018, and have stayed temporarily before returning to the U.K. in December to finalise our permanent move. We have now moved out fully on the 23rd January and now wish to register with the various official bodies, Social Security/ Tax/ Health etc. (We are both British and lived all our lives in the U.K. and are 66 and receive U.K. pensions)
We have received our S1 forms and obviously need to register with CPAM which I understand for our area is in Angouleme.
Having spent some time reading through various topics and replies I’m now confused as to when and where we should register to the various bodies locally, as we certainly don’t want to get started on the wrong footing.
I understand Barbezieux is our local point of access for tax and social security, but as our French is very limited at present, I thought that I would ask for advice on the forum regarding these important issues.
Which is the first and most urgent registration to address and how soon, what documentation is required. We do have several months of utility bills, so hopefully that will initially be ok to get the ball rolling as regards residency, although I do understand that until we are fully in the tax system, there are some vagaries in that regard.
When should we register with social services and how?
When should we take the S1 to CPAM?
How and when do we apply to become part of the Taxation System.
Thanks in anticipation
