Let’s face it, if there is one subject that causes everyone to roll their eyes and cringe, it’s the word ‘tax’. But the main frustration (apart from paying it of course) is understanding it. When do we need to pay it? What’s it used for? How much will it cost?

If you are a resident of France, you should be registered with a specific doctor, a médecin traitant. If you do not have a nominated GP, you will  receive  less money back from the Assurance Maladie (National Health)  via your carte vitale.

If you still have pockets, jars or piggy banks full of round pounds waiting to spend in Tescos on your next trip back to England, you have til October to spend, spend, spend. From October 15, the old pound will no longer be legal tender, replaced by a 12-sided version.
