Getting acquainted with a new tax system is much easier when you have someone to walk through the process with you. If any of the following describe your situation, Elitax could help you by holding a Welcome Tax Meeting:
Elitax offers a tailored service to help newcomers to France: the Welcome Tax Meeting. We’ll spend time with your employees, explaining everything they need to know about French tax rules. Each meeting is bespoke and delivered in a professional, friendly manner.
In a three to four-hour session, one of our consultants will explain the French tax system to your employees by means of a slideshow.
To start with, we first address issues of tax residency. Then, we explain the various direct and indirect taxes to which a tax resident — and, in some cases, tax non-resident — are subject.
We also discuss income tax rules in France. What is covered under taxable income? What is meant by a taxable household? How and when must an income tax return in France be filed? What are the penalties for late filing and payment? Detailed documentation is provided as part of the presentation.
The presentation can be delivered on a one-to-one basis, either face-to-face or via Skype, or in groups of employees. Over the following 12 months, each participant will have access to one of our tax advisors at no extra cost, in order to discuss and address specific tax issues.
Individuals and organisations who are unfamiliar with French tax law will benefit from Elitax’s 17 years of experience. Our meetings are tailored to your employees situation, so we can guarantee that they receive the best help available.

Thank you Elitax for providing such a no fuss, friendly and efficient service. We have used Elitax for 3 years now and would not hesitate to recommend them.
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.
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.
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.
