When you fill in your last French tax declaration - which will be after you have left, obviously, because the declarations are done retrospectively - you'll tell them the date when you left and you'll fill in the form for part of the year, Jan to March or Jan to Nov or whenever you leave. You'll pay tax and social charges for the part of the year you were living here, up to the date you left and went into the UK system, and that will be the end of your tax liability in France. You'll give the same date to the UK as the date when you arrived to live in the UK and became liable for tax there. The following year France may ask for proof that you have been in the UK system as from the date when you claim to have left France.

A quitus fiscal is a document supplied by the impots office that says you have proved that no import duty or VAT is due on a vehicule. FULL STOP

 

Le quitus fiscal (ou certificat fiscal) est un certificat qui indique que le véhicule est en situation régulière au regard de la taxe à la valeur ajoutée (TVA).

Right, no time this morning to find the correct link.

If you wish to leave the French tax system then you 'MAY' need to complete a 'quitus fiscal'

I was recently informed that it is no longer an obligation though.

The last time I helped a friend with this was in 2004/5 so I may be well off the mark and out of date here.

Leaving France 
When you leave the country you need a tax clearance statement (quitus fiscal). All taxes due, until the day you are leaving, must be paid. The tax inspector will estimate your tax liability based on income and deductibles and if the estimate turns out to be to high, you may ask for a refund. It is important to obtain this clearance statement - without it you will have trouble getting your belongings out of the country.

If I'm reading your post correctly you are returning to the UK but you haven't left yet? If you haven't left yet I'm not sure why you think that you shouldn't pay last years social charges and/or income tax? If you have already left then these charges may be for any savings you have here.
