On the 15 September, 2016, we officially became incorporated into the French Tax system as self-employed (auto-entrepreneur) professionals!


With the help of our lovely English-speaking bank account manager, we now have a ‘professional’ bank account for all our work transactions and an on-line account with the French tax office.  Being auto-entrepreneurs means that our status is ‘professional’ which means our health cover changes and we also pay into a pension scheme.  It’s early days yet but hopefully we shall get used to managing our new status and all that involves.

For us, it’s just good to know we are in the French system and it’s official 🙂 ♥
