Is TVA the french service tax included in real estate commissions?

Stone Bench in France

In France at this time TVA in general is the equivalent to Value Added Tax (V.A.T.) in English and Goods And Services Tax (G.S.T.) in Canada.

The TVA is NOT automatically included in the commission fees you will be charged when you buy French real estate so you need to find out if the commission you are paying is HT which means hors tax (before tax) or TTC which means ‘toutes taxe comprises’  all taxes  included.
