The principal features of each tax are described in sufficient detail to give the reader an understanding of the scope and scale of the charges levied.
In the third part of the book a series of chapters written on a topical basis bring together the tax consequences of commercial and industrial investment in France, purchase of a second home in France, and retirement in France among other subjects. These chapters also contain a wealth of practical information.
