WHILE May in France often means the arrival of warm evenings and fields of wild flowers, it is also the month of income tax and form filling.
For many it may also be the first time that your auto-entrepreneur business income has to be taken into account, but help is at hand.
Fortunately business advisor, Valerie Lemiere, has put together a detailed article on form 2042C which is used by the impots for the declaration of your auto-entrepreneur income.
One of the first things Valerie highlights is that tax offices across France currently have staff on hand to help with guidance and advice on completing the forms.
To track down the address of the tax office for your area check out the Service Public website that provides address and contact telephone numbers.
Valerie continues with pointers on the correct way to complete the income tax forms depending upon how you have set yourself up as auto-entrepreneur.
For example, if you have registered your business as impot liberatoire or sometimes called regime micro fiscal then you have already paid your income tax, however you still need to complete the relevant section of the form and you won't face any additional taxes.
Tax forms are challenging enough as it is, but when in another language then Valerie's handy guide may just help you get over the finish line and let you submit your form easily and simply.
