Hi all,

I am currently living and working (as a researcher) in Turkey, but my translation revenues will go to my bank account in France.
At some point I will need to declare my revenues and have a legal status as a translator in France (I currently pay taxes there from my previous job) ; do you know what is currently the best way to do this ?

I have heard that there is a new status called "auto-entrepreneur" (starting from 2009) that is specifically designed for people who earn sporadic revenues from the internet (from ebay, adsense, etc..), and it seems to correspond to my situation as most of my revenues do not come from translation services.
I wanted to ask you if you thought it would be a good choice for people in my case ?
If not, what would you suggest ? In general, I don't think it is wise do be in a dangerous fiscal situation and I would like to hear from your experiences.

Thanks in advance to everyone here.

A provisory solution Feb 26, 2009

May I point to the fact that the exemptions and derogations linked to this new status will only be upheld until Jan 1, 2012. After that date, those who want to continue (in our case in the translation industry) will have to search for a more "classical" status.

Your link doesn't work Feb 27, 2009

The right thread is here:

Conclusion: auto-entrepreneur is a complement for salaried workers or retired people, or maybe for starters or people who want to "test" an activity.

Besides, may I point out that you should have a legal status in the country where you pay taxes, i.e. the country where you are living for more than 183 days a year?
