I wish to employ an artisan to do some work in my cottage in France. How do I ensure he is registered to work in France?
You can ask the artisan to supply you with:
- an extract from the Register of Commerce (extrait d’inscription au registre du commerce et des sociétés),
- a certificate of registration in the Register of Craft Trades (carte justifiant l’inscription au Répertoire des Métiers),
- a company document (estimate, publicity) stating the company name, address and registration number.
