If you have ever had to deal with the French Authorities or indeed with any institution in France, then you will know how frustrating and confusing such interactions can become.
One thing the French Authorities seem to be good at is separating you from your money. There are taxes, social charges, contributions, and other subscriptions that may well be levied against you.
The French legal system is very different from its British counterpart. Expats often make the basic mistake of thinking that things work similarly in both countries.

Stress Free Move
Moving Stress-Free to France (or as close as to stress free as possible) : 3 benefits of hiring experts who do the work for you
Moving to France is an enormous life change. While many companies claim to offer helpful relocation services, what they are actually selling is advice or a form-filling service. Clients need much more than that; they require a detailed strategy and a hands-on team. In short, they require action—not just talk or paperwork. That is why it is so important to find a developed a team of experts. We are equipped with the latest technological tools to allow for the best practical help that will help you make good decisions throughout the entire moving process.
Why Obtaining Help Is CrucialCurrently, French systems and processes are inefficiently carried out by the official departments. The authorities often don’t even maintain their own websites; you could fill out and submit important online forms only to discover too late that those forms are not even being reviewed by anyone. You have to know how to fight the system, and a form-filling and explanation service can only work in a minority of cases. Who you know, rather than what you know, on a national basis is much more important when it comes to achieving a smooth moving transition.

Moving to France with experts is especially pertinent now, given the exit from the EU referendum. But although the process may not become easier, it certainly shouldn’t be harder if you employ the services of top-notch professionals. Working with pros offers you three key benefits:
