A couple of years ago I was investigating the possibility of setting up a website design buisness in France. I did a bit of research and came to the conclusion that I could never cope with the beurocratic hell of starting up there. I started to explore other possibilities such as Belgium, as I had read it was much easier there. However, recently, I saw a news article online that said that the french government had introduced laws simplifying the process of investing in france. I would like to know if anyone else knows anything about this, and whether it really will make a big difference in cutting red tape for self-employed foreigners.
I'm British and therefore an eu citizen, and I don't intend to employ anyone in the near future, just start up as a self-employed person. Any advice you can give would be much appreciated.
