    That’s the crux though. I have done exactly that to Nontron tax office to assist friends and the appeal is now with Bercy and still not resolved from last October.

    Hooray – french tax form completed!
    As I mentioned several pages back this time in UK our net rental income was very low so may not have to pay tax.
    I looked on previous years and saw I’ve always put a notional amount for tax paid with a question mark, as we won’t know until next Jan. So I did the same this time, just a low figure with?.
    The real fun will come next year though as we’re selling the UK house.
    ps Greyman – do you really look like Steve McQueen?

    Looks like the penny may have dropped. Social charges imposed on my UK rentals for 2013 but then credited 100%. First year I do not have to make a challenge. I hope this turns out to be an ongoing thing.
    Anyone else had the same result?

    Not the case here and just to rub salt in they counted the rent twice. I declared it in furnished lettings for the first time but maybe they’ve assumed the amount on the 2047 form was separate?

    This year’s avis from Limoges tax office – social charges levied on UK rentals and then credited back in full – same treatment as last year in my case. :D

    From Cahors tax office (a friend) – socials charges on UK rentals but no credit. :roll:

    It’s the usual farce with the tax office in Perigueux (24)

    The Avis shows a total amount to pay that is 1984€ more that it should be!

    One of these years they might get it right first time, but I’m not holding out much hope

    “Expats who rent out their homes in Britain will be stripped of the right to use the personal allowance, under a tax raid prepared by George Osborne.
    Britons could be forced to return from retirements overseas if the Chancellor presses ahead with plans to force non-residents to pay tax on all their UK income, accountants warned.
    Retirees drawing a Government pension are also likely to be hit by the proposals, which could cut a couple’s income by up to £4,000 a year.
    At present, EU nationals and British expats are entitled to offset income earned in the UK against the £10,000 personal allowance.
    Mr Osborne first indicated his desire to curtail the allowance in the March budget.”

    I’m not sure exactly what this might mean in practice but the Tories are always looking to steal from the poor to give to the rich.

    I have heard about this, and whilst it will be financially disadvantageous for me as I have rental income, I have found it very strange to be effectively benefiting from two personal allowances for the past 10 years. I understand where the UK government are coming from even if I don’t like it.

    Hi,
    You don’t benefit from 2 personal allowances ; if you lose the UK personal allowance on the rent you will pay in the UK at 20% from the first £; and because the rent is not taxable in france , you will get no relief here either. In fact , by being” taken into account “it will increase your french tax rate.

    Thanks for the clarification, I think that I understand it better now. But I have never paid tax in France as I don’t earn enough on the minimum wage. In fact they give me money back on the ‘prime d’emploi’.

    Received our tax bill today – TG nothing to pay.
    So they accepted my estimate of a notional tiny amount of tax to pay in the UK.
    I haven’t looked at it in detail yet.

    2014 Reclamation via the impots.gouv site was successful with the social charges removed. I did add a pdf copy of the 2014 UK tax return to the reclamation.

    Also, the double-counting of the rent (in both furnished & unfurnished sections) was corrected.
