What is the best interest savings account in france


Recommended Posts

No, nothing like it, interest rates are much lower in France.  Some banks do tax free interest savings accounts, CA have a couple  but you will be lucky to get more than 3.5%  BUT bear in mind that any interest earned in the UK once you move to France can be claimed back from the UK taxman through various means, BUT it has to be declared to the French taxman who will treat it as unearned income, and depending on your total income, attract a social charge of 11% tax ( that is what pays for the French Health and Social Security system so give generously) on the interest earned, so it might be a case of swings and roundabouts.
