British people with interests in France French accounting firm WEDIER

WE HELP UK NATIONALS UNDERSTAND THE FRENCH SYSTEM.

We are specialists in the field, as we:

  • understand the tax complications involved in having a life split between France and the UK;
  • handle international tax issues on a daily basis;
  • know how the double taxation treaties between France and the UK function;
  • speak English and, together with our partners, are very familiar with French tax law.

WHAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER

If you are British and you are resident in France, your tax situation may be complicated. For example:

  • Where are you resident?

Often, the first thing we do with our UK clients is to help them understand in which country they are resident. Once this is done, we can help them structure their tax affairs and lifestyle according to their requirements.

  • In which country will you have to pay tax?

Our UK clients often have revenues both in France and in the UK. We are familiar with the double taxation treaty between France and the UK and can help you file an application to ensure that you will not be taxed twice.

  • Have you paid too much tax?

Often, we realise that British nationals living in France have paid to much tax because, for example, they have paid French social security contributions and have not claimed tax exemption. We can help them apply for a repayment.

  • Do you live in the UK but have revenue in France?

We also help British private individuals who own property in France and who earn revenue from that property. This is a fairly complex field, and there are precise tax rules to be followed.

OUR APPROACH TO RISK

As a company, we do not like risk. Therefore, we will not advise or support you in any inappropriate matters. Across the world, there are certain "grey areas" in taxation - we steer clear of them.
