Help with starting your new enterprise in France

For an expat, starting a business in France may seem difficult and daunting, and for good reason.

It’s hard enough to get a new business off the ground, but with different cultures and language to contend with, you will certainly feel up against it.

This site is for people wishing to start a small to medium enterprise and need help

I can offer you help in several ways. First, to get your business up and running, you must have a SIRET number. One of the best ways to get that number is to apply for an Auto-entrepreneur certificate, or Micro-entrepreneur certificate as it’s now known.

But getting through the application process without being able to speak French can be a tedious and complicated exercise, where one incorrect tick or comment can set you right back.

Business in France

Who am I?

My name is Kathryn Bohme, I am a bilingual English woman, living in France since 2003.  I worked for 7 years here as an estate agent, getting to know a great deal about French law in the process.  I have learned to find my way around French bureaucracy, and can advise on many of the administrative steps when you set yourself up in France, on a personal and/or a business level.

I started teaching English to French people, and occasionally French to English people in 2010, and set up my own business doing so in 2011.  I have been called upon to help a number of English-speaking friends over the years, interpreting at the notaire’s, helping with administrative requirements, accompanying people to the doctor’s or hospital etc.  I have, therefore, decided to do this on a more formal basis, via my auto-entrepreneur business.

What I can offer you...

For a very affordable one-off charge of 49 euros I will help you fill out the application for the Micro-entrepreneur certificate, avoiding any pitfalls.

I have a 100% success rate and am keen to keep it that way, so it’s in my interest for your goal to be achieved.

To get started, please fill in the quick form below. Some of your answers will also feature in the application for the certificate, so you are saving time by doing this now.
