I am employed by a family 3 days a week (42hrs), with a contract and a pay slip. I have been with them 7 months, and was in the uk before that, i was wondering when i have to pay tax on my income, they pay my health cover. :)
I am also wanting to set up a massage buisness and be self employed on the other days, I was wondering how this worked with tax, and if it is possible to be both self employed and employed, do i have to pay more towards my health cover and how is the tax worked out? :confused:If any one has any answers or experiance of this i would be happy to hear, :confused2:

As for the taxes for 2009, the declaration form is due at the end of May. If this is your first year in France (or earning money in France) then you'll probably have to get your tax forms at the Tax office. Your last pay slip for the year will give you the taxable amount to declare on the forms.

After you turn in the forms, you'll get an assessment toward the end of the summer (usually August or early September), and there are a couple options as to how to pay it. Most folks opt for monthly or quarterly payments. Then you start making advance payments on your 2010 taxes, based on the amount you owed for 2009.

As far as the massage business is concerned, it all depends on how you set yourself up. If you're doing this as an auto-entrepreneur, you pay cotisations (health, retirement and other social charges) as a percentage of your revenues. Taxes are handled the same way.

If you set up your massage business under any of a number of other statutes, you have to register your business with the appropriate social insurance agency (probably RSI) and pay their assessments based on your reported income. Taxes depend if your business is set up to pay taxes on its own (i.e. as a company) or if you simply take the income into your own personal tax form.
Cheers,
Bev
