Printed guides to you within two to three days (excluding weekends) of ordering

You will be able to download the Helpguide as soon as purchased, directly from your My account space.

The guide is primarily aimed at Britons living in France or those in the UK receiving income from France such as from renting out a holiday home here.

French income tax forms will be sent to homes in April and must be completed by the end of May or early June, dependent if filed online or on paper.

This guide details information needed to make your declaration. It shows how to declare your income such as pensions, rent, ISAs, shares, savings and interest, with a visual guide to the French forms.

Contents include: 
- Changes this year 
- Tax residency and tax treaties 
- 2017  tax bands and exchange rates 
- Income to be declared 
- Double tax treaties 
- Social contributions 
- Useful vocabulary 
- UK rental income 
- Paper or online declaration options 
- Step-by-step guide to filling in key form sections 
- Claiming tax credits 
- Declaring foreign bank accounts 
- Different ways to pay 
- Reader questions and answers

We use the latest layout available for this which is taken from last year’s forms as the French tax authorities do not release any changed forms prior to the opening of the declaration period, so after publication of this guide. The guide also includes two pages on the online declaration. Please note that the nature of declaring online does not allow screen-by-screen help, however this largely follows the same pattern as the printed forms which are detailed in the guide.

If you select the download option it will be available immediately at the bottom of your My Account space (you access this top right of the website when logged in)
