Cotisation Foncière des Entreprises = French Business Rates

If you run your own business in France, you will receive a tax to pay called

Cotisation Foncière des Entreprises”. 

It has to be paid by 15th December 2012. 

If you set up your business in France this year, you will be exempt from the French Business Rates and next year you will only pay half of it.

To pay this tax, you can either send a cheque from French bank account, pay by TIP or pay online.
Here is the procedure to pay your tax online.

You will find a RIB in your French cheque book or on your bank statement.
Enter your email address twice and confirm (confirmez).

Within seconds you will receive a confirmation by email that your tax has been paid. Keep this email for your records.
