Translinguistic is a trading name of James Royston Roden and has no separate legal personality.  James Royston Roden practises under the French business structure of micro-entreprise, also known as auto-entreprise, akin to a sole trader.

This business structure, on certain financial conditions, is exempted from VAT (“TVA”) by virtue of article 293B of the CGI (Code Général des Impôts – French tax legislation).  As such, prices mentioned on the website, in correspondence, quotes and invoices, are both “HT” (net of tax) and “TTC” (inclusive of all taxes) in the sense that no VAT will be added to the final invoice.

Prices mentioned on the website are in euros (€) but project prices can be quoted in other currencies if required.  Payment is preferred by bank transfer in euros (SEPA) but is also accepted by cheque in euros.  Payment by other methods may be accepted but only if discussed and agreed prior to the work being carried out.  In the absence of any contrary provision, it is assumed that any disputes in relation to invoices or other matters will be subject to French law, that is to the jurisdiction in which this business is based.

As a simplified sole-trader business vehicle, the micro-entreprise carries no requirement to publish formal annual accounts.
