Has anyone got a copy of the form as I have lost mine somewhere?

I cannot find a copy on the internet or CMB webpage so any help would be very much appreciated as we are not back in Brittany until April earliest.

Hi Laura

We got one too from Credit Mutuel, it basically says what is outlined below.

I think it must be a new requirement.

The only thing I'm not sure about is, is the tax code your home residence tax code as there is no explanation. I am going to ask the bank, they also want proof of residence for tax purposes in your home country, I'm assuming a letter from the tax authorities will suffice.

You are declaring that you are tax based in uk & do not have a 'base' in france that could be your tax residence!

I told you what it said, first is where you live and second is declaring you have no revenue from any business or property in france, its because you have a French bank account, its tax chasing.

Hi Laura  We have received a similar letter from Credit Mutuel de Bretagne and I am still unsure what we are signing - I have requested an English translation from the bank as Google translate failed us on this occasion.

First line is where you reside and second line is declaring you have nothing in France you earn an income from, as you probably know if you own and rent out a property in France then you declare income in France and pay related tax in France.
