If you’re happy to proceed, we’ll send questionnaires to your employees and get started with a tailored Welcome tax meeting, personalised tax consultation and or their tax return.
The questionnaire will help us understand your employee’s tax situation, identifying their income, assets and current real estate wealth, allowing us to write out accurate tax consultation, welcome tax meeting and prepare income tax return as needed.

We have used Elitax.com for the past three years. At first we were unsure if a firm based in Paris, so far from us would be the correct thing to do. Our French language skills are limited but we had been assured (by other ex-pats) that our tax declarations would be simple and could easily be completed without engaging a professional firm. That is so far from the truth, it is almost a lie! We soon discovered just how the rules are littered with potholes ready to swallow the naive declarant whole. A very simple mistake, in entering our income in the wrong format, led to a very frightening tax investigation. At the conclusion of which we were just advised that our tax forms should be done by someone who knew what they were doing. Elitax were our saviours. Their advice and forms are simple to follow. The firm is efficient and are always available if assistance is needed. They ensure that you are fully aware of your responsibilities in relation to your declarations and they work well to ensure that submissions are made seamlessly. Their online client space is easy to follow. We cannot recommend Elitax enough.
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.
I am a United States citizen who has lived in France since 2004. I currently have a “titre de séjour, résident de longue durée” which will be valid until 2026. Elitax has prepared my French income tax return for me since I arrived in France more than thirteen years ago, and I have always been extremely satisfied with their work. I expect to remain a client of Elitax indefinitely.
As an Australian working in France I found the French Tax system somewhat daunting. I first approached Elitax three years ago when confronted with an Audit from the French Tax Office. With a number of investments in my home country this was a daunting task. Eliane and her team worked tirelessly to help me provide the 3cm thick file of paperwork and submit the request on time. During the preparation Elitax uncovered that I had been made an error during the two years under audit and I was due a small refund! I have been a client of Elitax ever since, even after returning to Australia. If you need to navigate the vagaries of the French Tax system I highly recommend Eliane, Stephanie and the team at Elitax.
