It works as well for UK residents after the BREXIT. Start the claim before it’s too late.
ARE YOU ELIGIBLE ?
You sold a property in France? You could be entitled to claim a french tax refund (9,70%) although you would remain liable for the solidarity tax of 7.5%.
You could claim the refund of CSG (9,20%) and CRDS(0,5%) if you have been taxed in France, but are affiliated to a social security system of another EU member state, Switzerland or UK.
More precisely, it is the case for the cross-borders commuters living in France but working in another EU member state, Switzerland or UK.
It is similar for non residents living outside France, working in another state of EU, Switzerland or UK, but having earned income in France (rent or capital gains) subject to social levies.
YES, IF YOU ARE A NON-RESIDENT :
- You work or live in a EU member state, in Switzerland or UK and are affiliated to the social security system of this country
- You earned income in France (rent or capital gains)
YES, IF YOU ARE A CROSS-BORDER COMMUTER :
- You live in France
- You work or have worked in one of the EU member states or Switzerland and are subject to the social security system of this country
WHAT CAN YOU RECOVER ?
You can obtain the refund of the CSG and CRDS (social security contributions levied) on your capital revenues at the following rate:
- 9,2% for CSG
- 0,5 % for CRDS
For example: you sold a property 400.000€ and your capital gain is 100.000 Euros, you can be refunded 9.700€ from the social contribution paid.
The delays are fixed by civil law, in particular article R.196-1 of the tax procedure book.
If the delay expires, it will be too late to claim your rights to be reimbursed.
The delays to claim are :
