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 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.
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.
I am a U.S. citizen living and working in Paris. Navigating the French tax system as an expatriate can be overwhelming. Elitax took all of the stress out of preparing and filing French tax returns. They understand the needs of expatriates and made the process very easy. They were thorough in preparing my tax forms and very prompt in responding to my questions. Their reliability and expertise make them easy to recommend. Thank you Elitax!
