“I was recommended Elitax by a financial advisor at the Paris British Lunch, i took the opportunity to have a meeting, where the advice received and action taken by Elitax was invaluable. I would happily recommend Elitax to any expatriates living and working in France.”
In my dealings with Elitax I have found them to be open and honest. I was impressed by their knowledge and above all their professionalism. They are also nice people to deal with.
I have used the Elitax services for two years now, and my taxes have always been done in a timely manner. Even though I have had challenges with the personal taxes in France, due to different sources of income from abroad that needed to be declared, the team offered professional advice on what to do to get the situation resolved. I am very pleased with the service and the professionalism, especially they provided valuable advices that provided significant tax savings. Thus, I recommend their service to anyone who’s looking for great customer service and a great tax preparer, especially for expats living in France.
I really appreciate Eliane’s international expertise and the English language skills. Despite me being based in another country, Eliane always provided timely feedback and followed up with me to meet the necessary deadline. For me the Elitax team is the modern, professional advisory team with the international expertise. I rely on their support.
