EU directives are usually adopted into the law of the various EU countries. But life is too short to search through french law to find it! 😐

And you can drive your french registered car in the Uk for up to 6 months...

Quite frankly trying to duck and dive around this issue seems like too much hard work to me, staying below the radar must be exhausting. So well done those who are biting the bullet and making a decision about where they and their cars live.

You can’t get any exemptions from taxe d’hab, which is going down to 0 for many people, and in some areas they slap a 20% surcharge on second homes too (in Paris it is 60%). You can’t get credit impôts for any environmental improvement works you do, if you do happen to make a profit when you sell you will have to pay capital gains tax (with a couple of exceptions).
Thanks for that, I had completely forgotten about the Td'H reform.
