Eliane and her team have been preparing my tax returns and guiding me through the complexities of dual taxation (USA-France) for the past four years and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough! I first contacted Elitax two weeks before tax deadline, when I had been let down by another company. Eliane took the time to understand my situation and left me confident that she would take care of everything. And she did! Aside from Eliane’s comprehensive technical knowledge and impeccable English, she has the rare gift of being able to convey her knowledge in a way that an average human being can understand. In addition, I always appreciate Eliane’s calmness and patience and the personal interaction that she is always ready to provide.
Elitax was referred to me a couple of years ago, where I first met Eliane. Being a new Impatriate to France, Eliane was excellent in easing me into the ways of the French tax system, appropriate to my situation. Her clear explanations, obvious great knowledge of the subject and generosity with her time and effort has made life so much easier than it could have been. I have to say that whenever I have needed to call upon Eliane she has responded promptly and I can definitely say she ‘goes the extra mile’ to help. If anyone needs tax advice as someone coming into France then I advise them to contact Eliane. I am very happy to endorse Elitax.
Very reactive and efficient service – helped me navigate the complexities of the tax system in France after my work move
When I was appointed to my job at the headquarters of my company in Paris, it was a big change in my life. A new country, a different culture, totally different ways of life and practices… Luckily, my company had already taken care of this and agreed with some consultant companies to support me in various aspects of this change. Elitax was my consultant on tax subjects. As I learned during my stay in France, tax is a very heavy subject and you cannot survive alone as an expat if you don’t have proper support. That’s where Elitax, i.e. Eliane and her team, come into the picture: They made a very thorough presentation of the tax system in France. I learned clearly my responsibilities and consequences of failure to comply with the requirements. They used their expertise to support me in the preparation of my tax declaration, relations with the authorities, representing me in the tax related communications with the authorities, both during and after my stay in France. I even remember being supported by Elitax team to understand the yearly French obligation to pay tax if you own a TV set at home! Oh, those were the days! Finally, I would like to thank Eliane for her support. She was one of the good people who made my life easy during my stay in France.
