How does it work ?

Let’s say you purchased a package of 10 home Pilates classes during the year, costing 1200€.

Thanks to the Services à la Personne scheme, you can benefit from a 50% reduction, which amounts to 600 euros on your tax.

So, if your initial French tax due was 2,000 euros, you will only have to pay 1,400 euros in the end.

Every year, before March 31 of the following year (N+1), a certificate is sent to confirm eligibility for the French tax credit.

This document indicates the exact amount to report in box 7DB of your income tax return. It should be kept as proof in case of a potential tax audit.”
