French Fees

Filing services are offered to non-French residents.

Even if your property has not been let, you may be required to file a return or declaration. We have a range of plans to suit all types of properties – whether furnished or unfurnished etc.

Rental Income Tax Return – €400.00.
This is a complete service covering the necessary tax returns for your furnished, non-furnished or Leaseback property (single or married – 1 property), provided detailed review of all supporting documents is required.

Micro Personal Income Tax Returns – €260.00.
This is a lower fee option which is available for furnished and non-furnished lettings instead of the Personal Income tax return option above. If you choose this option a notional percentage deduction will be taken instead of actual expenses incurred. This option is usually beneficial for individuals if there is no mortgage taken out and the rental expenses incurred are at a low level.

NIL Business tax return – €200.00.
This return is obligatory for leaseback lettings if no rental income was received. On occasion it may also be required for furnished lettings upon request from the tax office (again if no income was received). Note, no personal income tax return is required to be filed in this instance.

Start/Seize of activity – €150.00.
This is once-off declaration which is required when a property owner with a furnished property either starts renting it out for first time or ceases to rent the property.

French SCI rental income return – price on request.
Many people purchase properties in France through an SCI which is a special type of French company. If this is the case, a separate SCI return is required to be filed. The fee for the preparation of such a return will be quoted on request as it will vary based on the property type.

French NIL SCI returns – €182.00.
This fee will apply in the event that no rental income was received. A NIL return must be filed unless it was reported to the FTO upon company registration that there were no plans to rent the property out.

Exemption declaration – €50.00.
This annual declaration is required by French SCI and non-French companies based in the EU and owning French properties in order to avoid a 3% tax on the property value.

Additional property – €195.00.
This fee is due for the 2nd and each subsequent property (this fee applies in addition to the fees outlined in points 1 and 2 above and regardless of whether the property is furnished, unfurnished or a leaseback property).

Additional owner – €75.00.
This fee is due where there are multiple owners of a property if the owners are not a married couple. This charge covers the preparation of the additional personal return due. This fee applies in addition to the fees outlined in points 1 and 2 above regardless of whether the property is a furnished, unfurnished or leaseback property.

Administrative fee – €20.00.
This fee is obligatory and due for each year of submission. It covers postage, phone calls, photocopying etc.

Assistance with tax payments - €30.00.

Multiple years discount – 10%.
Available where returns for 2 or more tax years are required. This discount is applicable to the annual fees excluding any once off fees and administrative fee and does not apply where other discounts/reductions have been granted.
