Default Family live in France - but i split my time

How would this work out.

I buy a house in France, family live there. I split my time between france and the uk. AS my family are living in France, does that mean im liable for french tax?

Probably, yes.

The conditions for being considered tax resident in France are as follows (from the Fisc website):
Quote:
Unless international tax treaties state otherwise, you are considered to be a resident of France for tax purposes if you fulfil at least one of the following criteria :
  • Your household (including your spouse, civil partner and/or children) remains in France. This may be the case if you are living temporarily or for most of the year in another country for professional reasons. If you are single without dependants, then your tax residence is defined as where you live most of the time.

    or
  • You have a professional activity in France, as an employee or otherwise, unless this activity is secondary.

    or
  • The centre of your economic interests is in France. In other words, France is the location of your main investments, your place of business, the location of your professional activities, or the source of the majority of your income.
Nevertheless, applying each country's national legislation can result in your being considered a tax resident of several different countries. In such cases, in order to determine a single residence for tax purposes, please refer to the tax treaty applicable to your specific situation.
The first one does seem to apply in your case. But I don't know anything about the tax treaty with the UK.

Phil, you keep asking the same vague questions and you never give enough details for anyone to give a clear answer.
Have a look at France's residence rules. Have a look at the France-UK DTA. The answers are all in there.
You've been sitting on that fence for a very long time now...

AS we do not know what you are doing in the UK we cannot possibly give you any advice whatsoever
However from your previous posts I think it will be working If you physically do the work in the UK they will have first dibs at taxing you but if you then do anything in France relating to that employment eg computer work etc then that is a different kettle of fish In any event as your family are in France then I am sure the Impots will require you to submit a tax return in any event After Brexit and indeed even now Brits will have to show how they will support themselves and that they are living "en regle" which means submitting a tax return covering your world wide income.
