Income tax in France
French individual income tax ranges from 14% (earnings below €26,564) to 30% to 45% (earnings over €151,956). France has a regime of joint taxation for married couples and individuals who have contracted a civil union. Income tax is assessed on the combined income of the members of the household including dependents.
A favorable expatriate tax law applies and under certain conditions, expatriates seconded to France may not be taxed on compensation items relating to the assignment in France, such as a cost-of-living allowance, housing cost reimbursement and tax equalisation payments. The main condition is that the taxpayer must not have been considered a tax resident of France in any of the five tax years preceding his or her year of arrival in France. In addition, up to 20% of the remaining taxable compensation can potentially be excluded if the expatriate performs services outside of France during the assignment.
“The quality of service that Link provide is second to none.”

Ah, la vie est belle... It sure can be in France with its superb wine, pain au chocolats, great coffee and café culture, and plenty more of the good and sophisticated stuff in life.
If you love art, cuisine, culture and architecture, you’ll not be disappointed. France itself is a huge country, with so much to see across its many landscapes including Alpine mountains, open countryside, farms, rivers and spectacular sea coasts. Its cities are wonderfully diverse, ranging from chic Paris to Nice, Bordeaux, Lyon, Cannes, Marseille and St Tropez. Here you can ski, hike or surf – there’s something for everyone. A word of warning though. The French love their red tape. We shelter you from it though!
