Some of you have asked us about TVA (or VAT-BTW) in France (or better Europe). We have
contacted Alan Franklin Transport -Specialist carriers of Antiques and fine arts. According to their
A dealer from within Europe has to declare his sales tax at his home country, same way as he usually does. He
also has to use his home country TVA rate.
If a European dealer sells to a European dealer with a TVA number (but who is not a country fellow men), the
seller does not have to charge TVA to the buyer.
If a European dealer sells to a person from outside Europe, the buyer has to sign a paper, declaring that he
will take the goods out of Europe, and the seller does not has to charge TVA to the buyer.
A non European dealer entering France (Europe) has
to file a "temporary Import of goods".
When the goods are leaving Europe, the non-European dealer has to pay TVA (5.5% on books and atlases and
19.6% on maps and prints) on sold items.
This is usually done by your preferred carrier.
Please be advised that this advise is not legally binding and you can not use this in any
dispute. Be also advised that the matter is very complicated and several sources are giving different
answers. The above is what we have heard most.

restaurants of all sorts are within a few minutes walk of the hotel.
Attractions within one mile/3km: Champs Elysee, Notre Dame, Opera Garnier, Place Vendome, and

Printemps, and the Stock Exchange. The Louvre Museum is a 15-20 minutes walk south and the charming Montmartre area is a 10

There are also a number of early 19th century Passages/Galeries (arcades),
including the extensive Passage des Panoramas, near the hotel. As the Eyewitness Travel Guide to
Paris says: "At the time of their construction, the Galeries represented a new traffic free area for
commerce, workshops and apartments. They fell into disuse but were dramatically revamped in the 1970s
and now house an eclectic mixture of small shops selling anything from designer jewelry to rare books.
They have high, vaulted roofs of iron and glass."
