To assist them in this process, Elitax can serve as their tax representative, dealing with their income tax return in the year following their departure and handling any demands for tax payments. We provide a link between the French tax authorities and expatriates, ensuring that they receive their tax assessment on time and pay before the deadlines. We also answer letters from the tax authorities and provide information requested on behalf of your employees.
Once we have signed a tax representation contract with your employees, we inform the tax administration of their departure from France. We receive on their behalf and transfer to them all correspondence from the Tax Administration within five working days by e-mail. Where appropriate, we reply directly to the Tax Administration.
This service is provided on an annual basis at a set fee. It is renewable automatically by tacit consent unless we receive notification to terminate at least one month before the end of the contract.
The French Tax Administration is entitled to contest any income tax return or wealth tax return for up to three years from its submission. Following this, a statute of limitations applies. During this three-year period, the tax authorities can audit the whole tax situation of a taxpayer, including any business tax return and its implications for the individual’s income tax return or real estate wealth tax return.
To assist you in the event of an audit, Elitax will audit your employees previous and the current tax returns and help them respond correctly to the Tax Administration’s questions.
If further tax liabilities are discovered as a result of this process, Elitax will assist your employees with their regularisation.
