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.

Eliane and her team provide a great service. As an expat, I particularly appreciate not having to navigate the French tax system alone and knowing that my tax return was in safe hands. Highly recommended!
Neither my employer nor I had any experience with detached employee contracts. In my first few months moving from Paris to New York, we discovered many gaps in social protection and unexpected higher taxation obligations. The counsel we received from Elitax helped frame our choices, and enabled us to put everything in order. My company was smarter for the next set of expat assignments. Thanks, Elitax!
Represents a personal tax service that most of us require in this complicated world of technical electronic advancement and continual tax legislation changes. On my first introductory interview I was impressed by the personal and warm relationship the company’s ambiance engendered; important when dealing with tax matters.
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.
