UK/France tax question


(Caroline John) #1

Is it the case that even though we may pay our taxes on our UK income to HMRC, this income has to be declared on French tax forms?

Hello Caroline and welcome to the Forum.

Please amend your Registration to show your Full Name as per our Terms & Conditions… if you are not sure how to do that… simply put your full name on this thread and I will amend it for you.

It is quite correct … all income from whatever source… MUST be declared in France. At the moment there is a Treaty by which France offsets tax already paid in UK against tax that France might think appropriate.

There are some Incomes which attract Social Charges in France (a tax by another name :upside_down_face:)… but all of this can be explained by the folk at your local Tax Office. It is worth a visit to talk things through… and to be sure that you know exactly where you stand financially.

cheers

Does the tax year in France also end on 5th April?

No the French tax year is the calendar year ie 1st Jan to 31st Dec.
Same as for your property taxes and pretty much everything to do with admin, makes life far simpler…
