Getting acquainted with a new tax system is much easier when people have someone to walk through the process with them. If any of the following describe the situation of your clients, Elitax could help them 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 clients, 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 clients 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. Over the following 12 months, the client will have access to one of our tax advisors at no extra cost, in order to discuss and address specific tax issues.
Individuals who are unfamiliar with French tax law will benefit from Elitax’s 17 years of experience. Our meetings are tailored to your clients situations, so we can guarantee that they receive the best help available

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.
Represents a personal tax service that most of us require in this complicated world of technical electronic advancement and continual tax legislation changes. On my first introductory interview I was impressed by the personal and warm relationship the company’s ambiance engendered; important when dealing with tax matters.
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.
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!
