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

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.
Eliane and her team provide a great service. As an expat, I particularly appreciate not having to navigate the French tax system alone and knowing that my tax return was in safe hands. Highly recommended!
I am a United States citizen who has lived in France since 2004. I currently have a “titre de séjour, résident de longue durée” which will be valid until 2026. Elitax has prepared my French income tax return for me since I arrived in France more than thirteen years ago, and I have always been extremely satisfied with their work. I expect to remain a client of Elitax indefinitely.
Elitax was referred to me a couple of years ago, where I first met Eliane. Being a new Impatriate to France, Eliane was excellent in easing me into the ways of the French tax system, appropriate to my situation. Her clear explanations, obvious great knowledge of the subject and generosity with her time and effort has made life so much easier than it could have been. I have to say that whenever I have needed to call upon Eliane she has responded promptly and I can definitely say she ‘goes the extra mile’ to help. If anyone needs tax advice as someone coming into France then I advise them to contact Eliane. I am very happy to endorse Elitax.
