Meet Catherine

20 May 2021

Vivacious French National, Catherine is a woman of many talents, from reviving orchids and upcycling furniture to helping people achieve their French property dream, she is on hand to solve all problems.

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself and your interests.

A: I would describe myself as quite a handy person, I love decorating and very much enjoy DIY projects to include upcycling furniture and sourcing exciting vintage items to restore. I am also a keen artist and enjoy drawing and painting in my spare time. I love gardening and flowers in general and have managed to perfect the art of reviving orchids. Aside from that, I enjoy travelling and more particularly exploring historic places and hidden villages while cruising Europe.

Q: How would you describe your role?

A: My role is to provide clients with a proactive response to their queries on French tax exposure as residents and non-residents of France and on the tax implications for those living in France in general.  

Q: What do you enjoy about your profession?

A: Helping others, French as a language and tax can be a very scary and daunting combination! In the French tax department, we are keen to help clients who are planning a move to France or already own a French property so they can enjoy a worry-free life and achieve their French property dream.

Q: Who is a typical client? 

A: A typical client for me is usually a successful couple retiring to France to finally escape the rat race or a young family investing in their dream holiday home.

Q: What do people need to be thinking about now/ at this time of year in terms of tax? 

A: People need to be sure that they are compliant with the French tax system; the French tax season is upon us!

Q: What would be your top tip to somebody who is looking to get their taxes in order?

A: Always think ahead and obtain advice before you move or purchase a property in France.
