When should my business in France start to charge TVA?

· Viewed 1513 times

I’ve moved out of the auto-entrepreneur business into enterprises individuelle aux reel simplifie in France because I will soon be over the turnover limit. Impots have backdated my change to 1 January 2016 and given me a TVA number.

I have been advised by an accountant that I start using the number and charging TVA only from the month I anticipate that I will go over the 32,900 euros. However, another accountant has said I should start charging now since my TVA number has been given to me, also the Impots seemed to think the same, i.e. that I should start charging now.

Should I start charging TVA from 1 January 2016 because my business has a TVA number, or when I go over the 32,900 euros turnover limit?
