Can anyone explain to me the tax situation for me as a limited company contractor, about to reloate to France?

I work mainly offshore Aberdeen/Great Yarmouth, Holland and sometimes more far-flung places.  How does this present itself in the eyes of French tax laws etc.- particularly if I am out of the country for more than 6 months of the year?

You would need to talk to a qualified tax specialist, but basically if you can retain your UK tax residency qualifications you should not need to be taxed on your UK income in France. If your main home and/or family are in France then the authorities are likely to regard you as French resident, regardless of how long you actually spend in the country, but it is possible to be fiscally resident (not domiciled - that's different altogether) in both UK and France and thanks to the dual taxation treaty you should not be taxed again in France on income you have already paid tax on in UK and vice versa.

Social security and health cover is another matter - it may be possible but is frankly unlikely that under that setup you would be able to join the French health system or be covered by E forms other than temporarily so you may need to pay for healthcare in France or maybe look at private health insurance.

It's a complicated subject, as you see, and there's a lot of scope for getting things wrong so it's best to take professional advice.
