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 used Elitax to help me with my French tax returns while living in Germany. Eliane Rakotonoel and her team provided an invaluable and efficient service that saved me both time and money. I would highly recommend them.
Eliane and her team have been preparing my tax returns and guiding me through the complexities of dual taxation (USA-France) for the past four years and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough! I first contacted Elitax two weeks before tax deadline, when I had been let down by another company. Eliane took the time to understand my situation and left me confident that she would take care of everything. And she did! Aside from Eliane’s comprehensive technical knowledge and impeccable English, she has the rare gift of being able to convey her knowledge in a way that an average human being can understand. In addition, I always appreciate Eliane’s calmness and patience and the personal interaction that she is always ready to provide.
Elitax was recommended to me by a friend just before I moved to Paris several years ago. From the onset Eliane was extremely helpful and articulate — her command of English is as superb as her knowledge of international tax laws and bilateral agreements between EU nations. She quite quickly dissolved any apprehension I might have had and explained things in a quite lucid manner. Elitax has handled my affairs ever since and I can not recommend their services more highly.
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.
