Cotisations and passive income


Recommended Posts


My situation is that I have a passive income from overseas sources(Australia) and plan to live in our French Property(residence secondaire) for 1-2 years.I will be paying foncier and habitation taxes and of course will have to pay tax income tax which will be covered by the double taxation agreement between Australia and France.

My question is will I be worst off living in France because I have to pay cotisations ? I will not be reliant on the French Health system or Social Security system so will I be levied on this passive income? There are no equivalent taxes in Australia and so as far as I can tell, I will be 20%(approx) of my income worst off living in France.

Can anyone confirm that this will be the case?

Any information would be greatly appreciated
