    HELP!

    After may years of arguing 2 years ago I got all my payments re-imbursed and have since then had 2 years with a Zero bill.  This year I recieved a bill for 2015 and am into the process of appealing.  Auch have (as usual) said they are right, I now await the response from the Concilateur Fiscal, before I have to write to Lille.

    However I have, this morning, got a replacement bill for 2014 amending it from Zero to 3,000€!

    Does anyone know of an English/French accountant anywhere in France!  If he speaks some English it would help but I need some one who is ‘au fait’ with the Double Taxation Agreement.  The Auch tax office is not.

    I seriously mean ‘anywhere’ even though I am in the Gers.  I thought this problem had gone away but now it’s multiplying!

    If you have a name and contact details for me I think you should send me a p.m. and not put a ‘professionals’ name on this site.  Many thanks, if you can help.

    Neil.

    Hi,

    Before spending money on an accountant (some of whom are not much use), I suggest you down load the french version of the treaty (article 6)  and  send it to the tax office  – with a covering letter -be sure to get a written reply , so in the event of their not withdrawing you can send your ‘dossier’ to the Conciliateur  Fiscal and if he is as useless  as the tax office , to this : https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/vosdroits/F103

    Hi,

    Difficult to judge without full details , but one tip – never go to the tax office – email or write your questions- that way you get their answers in written form and can use them , if wrong, to support your claims.

    Write  or email to the tax office setting out details of your income , with copy of your declaration and tax “avis” and reclaim the charges.  If you get a written refusal you can appeal to the “conciliateur fiscal” and if that doesn’t work – the tribunal administratif, and ultimately the “mediateur”.

    Just had appeal against social charges on uk rental income turned down.

    As usual, the explanation is long-worded and complicated but they seem to suggest there has been a change to the law (loi no 2015-1702 of 21 December 2015) coming into effect from 1 January 2016.  Has anyone heard of any new changes?

    There are changes but it shouldn’t affect rental income as that’s taxable in the UK as per the taxation treaty.  I believe the only changes are that they will be charged to non residents and S1 holders on other investment income that they are normally charged on as they are no longer considered to be specifically to cover the health service deficit. I got charged them this year on my dividend income, for instance, but not on my rental income.
