About our tax services

Our primary focus is on income tax returns and wealth tax returns for both residential and non-residential clients in France, where we assist you in positioning, preparing and processing your tax returns.

For those moving to France, we have designed a welcome tax meeting upon your arrival in France, helping you understand what’s required to stay up to date with your tax records. For those leaving France, we also provide a unique process of personal consultation to help you become aware of the tax responsibilities and liabilities of expatriation.

We also provide tax representation services at departure from France, tax training to HR managers and tax audit support.

For our French clients, we offer clear-cut tax advice, providing free, practical information to help you keep your tax records in order. We also compile tax rate comparison charts to help expatriates compare tax rates abroad with those of the French system.
