“Elitax gave me honest and clear advice, which has proved very helpful. I have recommended them to my expatriate friends.”
Eliane Rakotonoel’s assistance has been essential to us in order to properly submit our tax information in France. We are very confident that all of the documentation is correct and that we are well represented in all things related to taxes in France. Everyone who works in her office is very professional and pleasant. We are very fortunate to have found her when we needed help and we happily recommend her to anyone who needs assistance with taxes in France.
Elitax was recommended to me by a friend just before I moved to Paris several years ago. From the onset Eliane was extremely helpful and articulate — her command of English is as superb as her knowledge of international tax laws and bilateral agreements between EU nations. She quite quickly dissolved any apprehension I might have had and explained things in a quite lucid manner. Elitax has handled my affairs ever since and I can not recommend their services more highly.
Very reactive and efficient service – helped me navigate the complexities of the tax system in France after my work move
