  2. Income Tax Return Service in France for your Employees

The French income tax return for employees is a mandatory document that all employees must file before the end of April. The form includes information about your salary, deductions, and allowances for social charges or other taxes. This article will give you an overview of what an income tax return is and why it’s important to file correctly.

You Have a Legal Information Obligation To Your Employees

A person who is a resident of France for tax purposes is required to declare all of his or her income for tax, which includes both income from French sources and income received abroad.

However, it may be difficult for expat employees to understand and adhere to French tax law, especially if they are having difficulties comprehending taxes in France or have a language barrier.

At Elitax, we are a team of bilingual tax experts who can help you with all of your tax needs, including filing the income tax returns for all employees. We will make sure that everything is filed correctly and help you understand any deductions or allowances that your employees may be entitled to.

Income taxes in France are calculated using a progressive rate scale. However, France has a number of tax treaties with other countries that are designed to avoid double taxation. We work with you to ensure that you take full advantage of all treaty arrangements relevant to your situation.

A complimentary tax consultation will enable us to understand your employee’s tax situation and status, establishing amongst other things whether they are a resident or a non-resident for French tax purposes. We can then help them prepare and process their French income tax return as appropriate.

Our Five-Step Process for Income Tax Return Service:

  • We establish their needs and timing
  • We send our income tax return in France questionnaire to them
  • They fill in the questionnaire and send it back to us
  • We work on their file and get their forms prepared
  • We deliver their French tax return forms to them or file online on their behalf

The questionnaire enables us to clarify and enumerate your employee’s different kinds of income and assets and identify any tax rebates, deductions, reductions, and/or tax credits to which they may be entitled. It helps us collect all the information that we need to prepare an optimised tax return.

First-time filers must file tax returns on paper. We send to your employees the completed tax forms, which they then sign and mail to the French Tax Administration. We provide full instructions on where and when the forms have to be mailed.

Individuals who have already filed at least once in France must file online. This is taken care of by Elitax.

Why Choose Elitax for Your Employees’ Income Tax Return?
