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.

“Excellent, friendly, bilingual service for those with French tax problems or wanting advice. I can personally recommend Elitax.”
As an expatriate, surrounding yourself with a set of professionals is of vital importance. Eliane guided me from my arrival to my departure through the complicated French fiscal systems, I felt in the best hands, never had any issues with the tax authorities. Eliane’s patience and service are second to none. Even today, after 2 years of my departure from France, I keep Eliane as a contact and ask for her advise which she offers at a very reliable speed. I highly recommend using Elitax as your tax parter.
Neither my employer nor I had any experience with detached employee contracts. In my first few months moving from Paris to New York, we discovered many gaps in social protection and unexpected higher taxation obligations. The counsel we received from Elitax helped frame our choices, and enabled us to put everything in order. My company was smarter for the next set of expat assignments. Thanks, Elitax!
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.
