We are currently researching moving to France next year. As we both were born in NI we qualify for Irish passports so continuing EU citizenship after Brexit should not be an issue.
I work self employed in UK and would continue to do so after the move, having spoken to HMRC and French authorities it seems fairly clear that as I earn in the UK I pay UK taxes and then submit a French tax return with UK income on it which would then receive a credit under the double taxation agreement.
Whats less clear is how I would pay social charges. My partner soon to be wife would register as AE as she would be doing Chambre d’hote in the house, I understand this would entitle her to access to healthcare. Ive also read conflicting reports that as her spouse my healthcare ( basic ) would be covered too, and others that say with Puma after 3 months resident I would qualify in my own right anyway?
As a non UK resident I would not have to pay NI so there would be no huge impact to finances if I had to pay social charges but the issue is I would have no registered business in France. Any help appreciated.
