4. Elderly/Disabled Home Adaptations in France

4.1. Tax Credit

Home adaptations for the elderly and handicapped are eligible for a tax credit.

A 'tax credit' is a payment to you by the tax authority, even though you may pay little or no income tax.

The list of eligible equipment and adaptations include, bathroom and kitchen fittings, lifts, and alarm systems.

Most works are eligible for a tax credit at rate of 25%, with the exception of lifts, where the rate is 15%.

The maximum credit available is €5000 for a single person and €10,000 for a couple.

4.2. Grants

You may also be entitled to means-tested grant assistance towards adaptation works, which you can read more about in our page on Improvement Grants.
