How do I start a commercial sole trader business in France?

· Viewed 1661 times

Im looking for advice on the best business set up here in France. In a nutshell I am an EU citizen that sells technology platforms. My client in this case will set up a contract which will start as 100,000 euros per annum as a base, but with the potential to earn a further 50,000 euros to 100,000 euros per year in earnings on top. What is the best system:

  • Given I rent in France
  • Travel a lot throughout Europe for business
  • Have a registered car in France, i.e. location avec option d’achat (LOA)

What would be the Tax obligations:

  1. Based on the initial guaranteed component and potential earnings stated above?
  2. What can one deduct under this system?
  3. What level of social security contributions would apply?
  4. What are the implications if I were to onboard further clients?
  5. What are the implications if those clients come from different European market to France?
