Best Business Visa for Australians
My Husband and I have recently purchased 2 properties in France.
We are paying cash for both of them and have staggered settlements for 4 months away and 6 months away.
Property #1 is for us to live in and also host Airbnb guests on 1 level of the home.
Property #2 is only a couple of streets away and this is an Airbnb property too.
My Husband is a tradesman in Australia and we would like to start a business for him here in France.
I will manage our family & the Airbnb’s at Property #1 & #2.
Both properties require minimal renovations that my husband will carry out.
Questions for you
- As Aussies, what Visa is most applicable for us to apply for so that we can stay in France permanently to run our 2 separate businesses?
- What paperwork and registration/s will my husband need for his business?
- What paperwork and registration/s will my business need am I a Gite/Hotel?
- Is there a French Business we can pay to set up all our Business admin/registration for both my husband and I, or is this something an Accountant can execute?
We have already set up a joint bank account at Credit Agricole.
We will be back in France in 4 weeks time, so I’d like to have our business structures and registration sorted out so I can open bank accounts for both businesses once we get there next month. But…
I am very confused about the order I do things so as to get the right Visa’s for us.
-Should I register both business’s and open bank accounts OR apply for visa’s first then do business registration and bank accounts later?
