Can someone be Autoentrepreneur and separately take CESU payments?

I am very out of date on this since I helped a couple of people set up as AE at the very beginning of the scheme, so I prefer to ask anyone who is currently using it..
Does one have to choose between AE and CESU or can one work in both systems at the same time?

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

It's called microentrepreneur these days! and yes you can use both systems, many people do. Obviously you keep the two revenue streams totally separate. What you earn via CESU is not included in the declarations of turnover you make to URSSAF, it's processed via the CESU system and your employer pays cotisations on that. On your tax return you declare your ME turnover and your CESU earnings separately in different boxes.
None of the recent changes have affected that aspect of things.

Thank you for that extremely rapid and very helpful reply.
Just what I needed to know.
You are exactly the person I hoped would answer as you are an expert in these areas.
