Tax Consultations on Arrival or Departure from France

Arriving or leaving France requires detailed knowledge of different tax systems. Our tax consultations help you navigate through them

Moving country is stressful enough without having to keep up to speed with different tax laws. When moving to or away from France, you’ll need to know what sort of tax you need to pay, how to calculate it effectively and how to submit it to the right tax office. That’s where our tax consultations can help.

Our written tax consultations provide you with the tax information you need to know about the country you’re moving to, keeping you informed of your tax obligations and residency status.

We’ll send you a quick and easy questionnaire document that gathers all the required information we need in one place, helping us assess your tax situation. We’ll look at your individual circumstances (marital status, dependants, personal assets, etc.), professional career situation (split-salary, multiple-contracts, etc.), and your current wealth.

What does the tax consultation cover?

A tax report
Written upon the receipt of the filled in questionnaire mention above.

In the tax report written by Elitax, you’ll find several information such as:

  • The determination of tax residency
  • Tax liabilities in the country of tax residency
  • Tax liabilities in the other country
  • Different kind of taxes in both countries
  • The tax return deadlines
  • A copy of the dual country survey which is also provided

Income tax calculations
Specific calculations are required to determine an expatriate’s tax liabilities in respect both of France and the country that the expatriate is leaving or moving to. Our tax calculations will look at these tax liabilities and ensure you’re aware of them at all times.

Foreign tax calculations
We’ll determine the amount of income tax you’ll need to pay in the country you’re going to. Using the tax law of the country, we can identify potential tax benefits such as deductions, allowances and tax credits, taking your individual situation into consideration and potentially saving you a significant amount of money.

Country of origin hypothetical income tax (Hypo Tax)
We’ll calculate the income tax you would have paid if you had stayed in the country of origin. This is for comparison purposes to help you understand the monetary implications of moving country.

Tax and social security differential calculation
It consists of:

  • Calculations of the actual social security contributions in the host country and of the hypothetical social security contributions in the country of origin.
  • Calculation of the tax amount due in the host country (considering all tax-free benefits, deductions, allowances, tax credits for which the expatriate may be eligible). This calculation is made regarding the latest information we have.
  • Calculation of the differential between the actual social security contributions, income tax amount in the host country and the hypothetical social security contributions, and income tax amount of the country of origin.

All our tax estimates are made with the most up-to-date information we can find. Although we aim to stay on top of the tax laws of different countries, we cannot be held responsible for any late changes to laws that may affect your tax costs after we have finished our consultation with you.
