Living and working freelance in France

Posted in France forum

Hi everyone!

My partner and I have just moved to France and I don't even know where to start with french bureaucracy...

I'm Irish (EU citizen) and she is British. We are both doing online freelance work in our respective fields (digital marketing & translation).

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what to do next? Do we register as micro-enterprises first? Or go for carte de sejours (I'm aware that there's a new form coming soon for this for British citizens wanting to stay in France after Brexit)? Then there's health insurance which seems quite complex.

I would be very appreciative if anyone could share any tips with me!

P.S. I should add that we are currently renting a flat, have internet, french sims, contents insurance, gas & electricity etc. sorted.

Thanks a million,
