  1. Hello I'm already registered as a micro bnc as prof liberale.  I earn up to just about the limit and I am in year 4 so I think the move to AE has limited benefits.  I am also now working as a salaried employee and again not sure how that will affect things, I now have less time to spend on my own buisness I guess so earning via that route will be likely less this year and as an employee I pay my cotis as I go.  Lots  think about..and no obvious answers. Thanks for the info, I think I will wait fo rit to be possible and then look at it again. Panda
  2. Hello Being really nosey now Albert so feel free to tell me to mind my own business but, are you going to change over yourself?  I think we do similar work and I am still on the fence as to whether it's worth the hassle for me, also can I still change it being I was unable tp as a PL before mid Feb?

  3. Hello I don't think the above is entirely accurate, you pay tax where you are at the time of earning the income, so in this case the OP's OH will pay tax in the UK, this should be declared on their French tax return as income earned and taxed abroad I believe, so no tax will be taken in France.  I am no expert though, someone knowledgable will come along and correct this shortly no doubt!

  4. Hi I also do as Will describes above, I am Prof Lib Micro Bnc and also am currently a salaried seasonal employee.  I'm not sure how this will affect my cotisations etc. (I'm expecting cotsations for the micro to stay the same, they are after all a percentage of income) . I also know that it is a comon set up particularly for people I've met who teach, my Uni prof for example also took private lessons, with the Uni's consent. Panda
  5. Inspiration for you with only 2 weeks to Valentines......                                                                              THESE ARE ENTRIES TO A WASHINGTON POST COMPETITION                         ASKING FOR A TWO-LINE RHYME                     WITH THE MOST ROMANTIC FIRST LINE,                    AND THE LEAST ROMANTIC  SECOND LINE:     1. My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:    Marrying you has screwed up my life.      2. I see your face when I am dreaming.    That's why I always wake up screaming.      3. Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;    This describes everything you are not.      4. Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss,    But I only slept with you 'cause I was p*ssed.     5. I thought that I could love no other    -- that is until I met your brother.      6. Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.    But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl's    empty and so is your head.      7. I want to feel your sweet embrace;    But don't take that paper bag off your face.      8. I love your smile, your face, and your eyes    Damn, I'm good at telling lies!      9. My love, you take my breath away.    What have you stepped in to smell this way?   10. My feelings for you no words can tell,    Except for maybe 'Go to hell.'       11. What inspired this amorous rhyme?    Two parts vodka, one part lime.       WHO SAID POETRY IS BORING?    
  6. When I moved a mobile home here via a carrier involved in this type of work all the time I was told he had to post his route somewhere but did not need the full CE business.  It was about 3X8. 
  7. [quote user="Baggycat"]. It will be an interesting year, no doubt, in French property, but I can't foresee that being an agent selling predominantly to Brits will be much of an earner.[/quote] I know of someone who has not sold a single property in a whole year, it is not the business to be in anywhere selling to anyone it would seem!
  8. Sadly you will see that figure double for school hols at least.
  9. Shame on the hol dates although perhsp OK as Âme says. [quote user="Âme"] Break a leg, as they say...![/quote]   Not a commmon expression amongst skiers Âme, more for those who tread the boards not hurtle down mountains on them!!
  10. Hi Frenchie Dates are important here, UK hols start on the 14th I believe where as my son's start on the 7th, here in the Alps the week of the 7th is NOT busy at all so you may get a good deal if you go before UK holidays.  Panda  
  11.   I have stated before that I was worried about secondary education here in France, primary has been fine except for the items listed above, no IT no art.  However a recent move has made me realise how bad things were where I was before.  My son was top of the class in the village primaire, always getting 18 or 19 and sometimes 20.  He was in his new primaire for one day and I was called in to see the teacher.  I was shocked to be told that my son was miles behind his class mates in most subjects and that he needed to attend after school classes twice a week to catch up!  The new teacher is very strong, she taught in Paris before taking this position in the Alps and told me she intended to turn out high achievers not just average students.  So what can I make of this, that in the Charente the schools are so backward that my son could  finish top of the class and yet be miles behind other shcools, or just that I have found a french teacher who really pushes the kids to achieve?? I'm happy of course that she caught this now with only one year to go to secondary school but what about all those other poor kids in rural schools, are they getting the same poor education? Incidentally the schools here have IT equipment, take art and musicclasses and have a full sports programme due to the proximity of facitlities (pools, ski-ing etc.) so it is an area lottery.
  12. [quote user="ErnieY"]Does it not hinge on the formality of the partnership ? If they are just living together without a recognised UK civil union or a French pacte civil de solidarité then in effect they have no relationship to each other at all in which case she will not be able to piggy back onto his E121 [/quote] It must do Ernie, although if not anyone single and  in need could form a 'partnership' taking it as far as is required to get the 'droit', could replace speed dating that!
  13. Hello Has any one experience of working as an employee and being self employed at the same time.  I am wondering how my cotisations will be affected I currently pay about 25% of my gross income (for the micro) in cotisations and tax. Thanks
