How do I file taxes as an auto-entrepreneur?November 13, 2017 at 8:36 am #2103
Sign up with the RSI, or the Régime Social des Indépendants when you first establish yourself. This is the organization that will get you your healthcare and other benefits. You can pay them quarterly or monthly. The rates will vary depending on the kind of business you have, and are always based on the previous turnover, so the previous month or quarter depending on what you choose.
Here are the rates if you choose to pay quarterly:
-For re-selling goods or materials: 13.3%
-For selling services 22.9%
And here are the monthly rates:
-For re-selling goods or materials: 1%
-Other commercial or artisanal businesses: 1.7%
Know that as an auto-entrepreneur you are not eligible to deduct any business costs from the social charges, the “cotisations sociales” that you pay.
Each year you will still make a personal tax declaration, a declaration des revenus. Complete the Form 2042 which you can find here: https://www.impots.gouv.fr/portail/
In subsequent years you will automatically receive the form in the mail.June 4, 2018 at 9:15 am #2806
I have a question on this topic as well. I plan to sell services. Does that mean that it’s not possible to pay taxes on a monthly basis?
And if I choose a quarterly basis, the difference in the percentage seems huge. Does it mean that I pay 25% of the revenue that I recieved during all the three months once in 3 months or of the average monthly revenue?
Also I got a little confused with the revenue wich is considered as a summ for taxes and for visa. It should be 1500 minimum. Is it 1500 that I will recieve on my bank account or 1500 which are 60% revenue for profession liberale (services) – so that I need to recieve at least 2500 on my account?
Also, this income on my account, should it go directly from each client as per contract or it could be gross sum which I transfer myself from my PayPal or Skrill? (as normally my clients pay me via website and to pay directly on a french account would be a big headache for them as they are coming from alll over the world))
And the last question – are there any annual payments (taxes) or only one of those two mentioned – monthly or quarterly taxes? I read about registration fees (mandatory orientation, as well as fees associated with registering and being part of the Chambre de Commerce, the Chambre de Métiers or the URSSAF) but are there any apart from them?
Sorry for a lot of confusions and questions, but I need to deal somehow with this mathematics and it seems quite complicated for the first time!)June 4, 2018 at 9:39 am #2807

You pay about 23% taxes on your total income, whether you pay monthly or quarterly. So, if you earn €1500 per month for 3 months, you’ll pay either €345 per month (the month following the income) OR you’ll pay €1.035 at the end of the quarter.
€1500 is the GROSS amount you’ll need to receive.
You need to create an invoice for each client payment for the GROSS amount (before Paypal/Skrill fees are taken out, and before taxes).
There is a Cotisation Foncière des Entreprises tax to pay after the first year, which is set by your commune where you work.
Without knowing what type of services you do, I can’t advise on whether you have to register with the CdM or the CdC. (CdM has a stage and fees, the CdC does not).
What visa type do you have? Are you eligible to register for AE?June 10, 2018 at 9:59 am #2844
Thank you very much for the explanations, Allison! I am eligible (I have APS) and for the sphere – it will be formation (providing trainings for the business and language classes)June 12, 2018 at 2:21 pm #2845
I have verified the type, I think it would be “Enseignements divers et services de soutien a l’engeignement” => “Formatrice en Soft Skills” 🙂
So it would be liberal sector and not artisan? Will I need a “stage” in my case? Do I still need to register in the CdM or the CdC?
Also I had a question regarding the date of the start – would it be the day I’ve completed and sent the form or the day when I recieve the letter with my Siren? It’s important as I want to send the first declaration in October, so I need to register in June… And some people say they recieve Siren after weeks
Thank in advance for any suggetions!
