French legislation from January 1, 2016 approved a change of rules for a range of foreign companies based in Europe. This concerns foreign companies selling products and services into France from outside [distance selling]. This applies to conventional and online sales in France.
New legislation will impact a range of EU-Based Companies engaged in selling products into France.
Currently EU-Based companies selling into France are required to register where their turnover in respect of French sales exceeds 100K Euros annually. The new legislation adjusts this threshold down to 35 000 Euros annually.
EU-Based companies will be required to register in France for VAT purposes if their turnover exceeds this amount annually, and pay VAT in VAT accordingly.
This EU based companies breaching the threshold of 35 000 € online selling in France, have the choice between:

The tax law is admittedly complicated for a foreigner living in France, it is comforting knowing that a professional like Eliane and her team are on the job. They delivered on all aspects; alwaysprofessional, client focused and with a smile on their face. A pure pleasure doing business with Elitax!
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 have had the pleasure of working with Eliane at Elitax for the past three years. She makes what seems like a complicated foreign system for an expat straightforward, efficient and timely! Eliane and her team handle any questions or requests from the Impots Francais quickly and help put your mind at ease. While I am domicile here in France I will certainly be using Elitax services which come highly recommended!
After many disappointing experiences with so called “bilingual accountant,” I was finally introduced to Eliane. She understood my situation as an owner of the second house in France and my tax position as a UK citizen straight away and helped me towards the right direction. Apart from the efficiency and accuracy of her work, I also appreciate her friendly and caring approach very much. I used to find the French tax declaration on my rental business as a burdensome duty but now with Eliane, it has become much less of a burden! I highly recommend her firm to anyone who, like me, not very competent in French to deal with the complicated tax issues in France.
