Alongside our welcome tax meeting, we offer assistance to employers working with expatriates by providing tax training sessions for their staff members.
Employers are required under French labour law to ensure that their expatriate employees are fully informed on their tax obligations in France — and these training sessions are a useful way to help companies meet these requirements. At the same time, they’re also designed to assist in the planning and administration of expatriate employment.
Our customised training focuses on the specific situation and needs of your company, covering your employee’s tax liabilities and responsibilities in line with the tax requirements of designated countries.
This training is designed to raise awareness and understanding of the tax implications of employee expatriation for key departments including human resources, finance and payment.
Our tax training is organised on-site at the company on a one, two or three-day basis, depending on the size, scope and complexity of the company’s expatriate program.
Our multifunctional training addresses both the tax aspects and other key facets of expatriation, including international work contracts, immigration issues and social security. This type of tax training is offered on a three-day basis on-site at one of our associated companies, who are specialised in international mobility issues.
A typical tax training program covers the following topics:
We’ve helped hundreds of clients resolve their tax issues.
In the context of constant movement of the work force between world’s countries and not a uniformed way of taxation laws, for a foreigner can be a struggle to adapt to the local financial and taxation system. As an expat in Paris, Elitax was for me the compass and help needed to understand the French system. The communication with Elitax was easy, professional and with great English level. What, how and when to do all the applications in order to respect French fiscal system were explained in a comprehensive way. I strongly recommend Elitax as your expat consultant. I would return as a customer to their service.
“Elitax gave me honest and clear advice, which has proved very helpful. I have recommended them to my expatriate friends.”
When I was appointed to my job at the headquarters of my company in Paris, it was a big change in my life. A new country, a different culture, totally different ways of life and practices… Luckily, my company had already taken care of this and agreed with some consultant companies to support me in various aspects of this change. Elitax was my consultant on tax subjects. As I learned during my stay in France, tax is a very heavy subject and you cannot survive alone as an expat if you don’t have proper support. That’s where Elitax, i.e. Eliane and her team, come into the picture: They made a very thorough presentation of the tax system in France. I learned clearly my responsibilities and consequences of failure to comply with the requirements. They used their expertise to support me in the preparation of my tax declaration, relations with the authorities, representing me in the tax related communications with the authorities, both during and after my stay in France. I even remember being supported by Elitax team to understand the yearly French obligation to pay tax if you own a TV set at home! Oh, those were the days! Finally, I would like to thank Eliane for her support. She was one of the good people who made my life easy during my stay in France.
We have used Elitax.com for the past three years. At first we were unsure if a firm based in Paris, so far from us would be the correct thing to do. Our French language skills are limited but we had been assured (by other ex-pats) that our tax declarations would be simple and could easily be completed without engaging a professional firm. That is so far from the truth, it is almost a lie! We soon discovered just how the rules are littered with potholes ready to swallow the naive declarant whole. A very simple mistake, in entering our income in the wrong format, led to a very frightening tax investigation. At the conclusion of which we were just advised that our tax forms should be done by someone who knew what they were doing. Elitax were our saviours. Their advice and forms are simple to follow. The firm is efficient and are always available if assistance is needed. They ensure that you are fully aware of your responsibilities in relation to your declarations and they work well to ensure that submissions are made seamlessly. Their online client space is easy to follow. We cannot recommend Elitax enough.
