Official view on skill exchanges?


Recommended Posts

I've got a horrible feeling that I can guess what the answer will be to this, but does anyone know if there is an 'official view' in France on 'back scratching' arrangements?

IE. I do some bricolage for you and you repair my car.

I am guessing that they would rather we pay each other and then both pay our taxes to gov'.

We were involved in a skills exchange scheme in the UK (LETS). There, the biggest (official) stumbling block was the DSS and unemployment benefit - here in France it seems to be the tax authorities.
In both countries, the systems tended to flounder simply because members, having been introduced, tended to help each other out leaving the trading system out of the equation.
You could just call it good neighbourliness!
