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
For you as an individual client
They can draw on expert help in the event of any tax questions arising during the course of their first year in France. This ensures they get off to the right start in their new country of residence.
For you as a relocation company
Once your clients have settled into their new home, they can count on English-speaking tax advisors to help them with their tax issues in France. With Elitax, the language barrier is non-existent.
We’ve helped hundreds of clients resolve their tax issues.
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!
