Auto-entrepreneurs: When to make your first turnover declaration

By Valérie Aston on 17 February 2010 · Viewed 5611 times · Questions

All auto-entrepreneurs have a minimum delay of 90 days before having to make their first turnover declaration. If you have decided to make your declaration by post, just wait for the Declaration de chiffre d’affaires form to be sent to you by RSI or URSSAF (according to your activity). If you have not received anything past the 90 days, get in touch with RSI or URSSAF, as there might be an issue with your account.

For auto-entrepreneurs wanting to declare and pay online via, follow the easy 2 steps process:

  1. Create your account with Net Entreprises,
  2. Declare and pay when the deadline is up

The same minimum delay of 90 days applies to you too.

There are a few bugs with the Net Entreprises accounts. Some auto-entrepreneurs who initially opted to pay on a quarterly basis have noticed that their declaration has switched to a monthly deadline. If this is your case contact RSI or URSSAF (according to you activity) and ask them to update your account.

My account with Net Entreprises for instance did respect the 90 days delay, but was switched to a monthly declaration straight away.
