I am an auto entrepreneur; can I opt for VAT?
As of January 2018, thresholds for auto entrepreneur status have been raised by the French government. However, the VAT exemption ceiling (“régime de franchise”) remains the same.
This means you can now be an auto entrepreneur and collect VAT at the same time! Before, you had to give up auto entrepreneur status and the tax benefits that go with it.
However, if your turnover is higher than 82,800€ for goods or 32,300€ for services, then you’ll be automatically subject to VAT by the French tax administration.
