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’ve helped hundreds of clients resolve their tax issues.
I really appreciate Eliane’s international expertise and the English language skills. Despite me being based in another country, Eliane always provided timely feedback and followed up with me to meet the necessary deadline. For me the Elitax team is the modern, professional advisory team with the international expertise. I rely on their support.
As an Australian working in France I found the French Tax system somewhat daunting. I first approached Elitax three years ago when confronted with an Audit from the French Tax Office. With a number of investments in my home country this was a daunting task. Eliane and her team worked tirelessly to help me provide the 3cm thick file of paperwork and submit the request on time. During the preparation Elitax uncovered that I had been made an error during the two years under audit and I was due a small refund! I have been a client of Elitax ever since, even after returning to Australia. If you need to navigate the vagaries of the French Tax system I highly recommend Eliane, Stephanie and the team at Elitax.
ELITAX has provided excellent service for me for several years on both the French and the USA returns. In addition to her expertise in national and international tax law, Eliane Rakotonoel provides the additional – invaluable! – dimension of full customer service, attending promptly and personally to any questions and concerns that may arize during all phases of the return process. I do not hesitate to highly recommend ELITAX to anyone interested in working with a highly competent tax specialist who will also assure personal attention to your needs!
Very reactive and efficient service – helped me navigate the complexities of the tax system in France after my work move
