Tax Declarations in France — FACT FILE

In France , anyone(either resident in France or Non resident) who derives income from a French based property, irrespective of where that income is paid or received , must make an annual declaration of that income to the French Revenue authorities.

It is not sufficient to rely on the fact that the income may have been declared to the Uk Inland Revenue.

There is also evidence of increased contacts between the UK Inland Revenue and their French counterparts. As it is a French based asset the French authorities will expect the first option on the tax on that income .

It is also the responsibility of the Tax payer to make the declaration and not simply to rely on the Tax authority sending them a declaration. The penalties for late/non declaration can be severe. source David Gibson — Cabinet Berthet:
