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.
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:
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:
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.

We have been using ELITAX as our tax consultants not only for our company but as well as for our expatriated personnel. ELITAX has been fundamental to our day to day operations being our company involved not only in European countries but as well in Africa and Middle East therefore, in need of international expertise. The knowledge and the attention to us has been faultless.
As an expatriate, surrounding yourself with a set of professionals is of vital importance. Eliane guided me from my arrival to my departure through the complicated French fiscal systems, I felt in the best hands, never had any issues with the tax authorities. Eliane’s patience and service are second to none. Even today, after 2 years of my departure from France, I keep Eliane as a contact and ask for her advise which she offers at a very reliable speed. I highly recommend using Elitax as your tax parter.
In my dealings with Elitax I have found them to be open and honest. I was impressed by their knowledge and above all their professionalism. They are also nice people to deal with.
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!
