Auto-entrepreneur: no compulsory registrations to business directories Annuaires

By Valérie Aston on 29 October 2009 · Viewed 5100 times · Questions

Many auto-entrepreneurs seem to be receiving invoices for business directories and phone directories. The letters come with a very formal invoice ranging from 250€ to 350€ and states that the registration is compulsory. These letters are extremely bad taste promotional offers and should be ignored. There are no compulsory business or phone directory registrations for auto-entrepreneurs.

Example

Auto-entrepreneur: no compulsory registrations to business directories Annuaires

Examples of scams or marketing campaigns of extremely bad taste:

  • Annuaire Telecom 118 for 260 euros
  • Registre des societes nouvellements crees for 80 euros
  • The auto entrepreneur website also mentions an invoice coming from abroad.
