In France, there is a scheme in place to encourage entrepreneurs starting from scratch: being an auto entrepreneur. You must initially register with the social and tax administrations, then pay the social contributions on a quarterly basis at a rate of approximately 25%, additionally paying income tax at the end of the year. (Alternatively, you can pay income tax on a quarterly basis, should you wish).
For example, if your turnover amounts to €25,000, the amount payable would be €6,000. You can opt to pay this on a quarterly basis, as well as submitting the 2042 C-Pro form at the end of the year. It is worth noting that this amount is mainly social contributions, with income tax only contributing to roughly 2% of the total.

Can I avoid bookkeeping under auto entrepreneur mode?
Bookkeeping is a mandatory requirement for any business, whatever its size. At minimum, you must be able to provide the tax administration with the breakdown of your revenue at any time, as evidence of complying with the €32.000 limit. Thus making you on the safe side.
What if my business increases rapidly and exceeds the legal cap as at €32.000?
This is the risky side of this friendly tax exemption. Should you exceed this limit you may be liable to an overdue penalty. In any case, you would have to update your tax inspector right away, in order to turn your tax status into regular business with VAT and miscellaneous taxes.
Can you help me for checking that my business stays below the cap?
