Hello everybody, sorry to post another question, but I am confused. I am an expat living in France. Is it better to set up a business from the UK and publish from there? If I set it up in France it doesn't appear I can produce an audio book. Also, when I search from Kindle .FR a lot of books are only available from the UK site, therefore, is the reverse true i.e. if I publish in France will it only be available from the French site. Thanks in advance for your answers.

You should set it up in whatever country you pay your taxes to.
You can choose where you want to list your book/s, including all options available.

All KDP publishers except for those in Japan producing Japanese-language books must go through the one US-based KDP platform at kdp.amazon.com

Enter the tax ID that you use to pay your income taxes, whether that's a UK number (usually the National Insurance number) or a French one. I think that in both cases the withholding rate will be zero. (Certainly it will be for the UK.)

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ
