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:
For each of these cases, Elitax offers a tailored service to help newcomers to France: the Welcome Tax Meeting. We’ll spend time with you, explaining everything you 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 or 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, 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 situation, so we can guarantee that you receive the best help available.

“Excellent, friendly, bilingual service for those with French tax problems or wanting advice. I can personally recommend Elitax.”
I have used the Elitax services for two years now, and my taxes have always been done in a timely manner. Even though I have had challenges with the personal taxes in France, due to different sources of income from abroad that needed to be declared, the team offered professional advice on what to do to get the situation resolved. I am very pleased with the service and the professionalism, especially they provided valuable advices that provided significant tax savings. Thus, I recommend their service to anyone who’s looking for great customer service and a great tax preparer, especially for expats living in France.
We have been using ELITAX as our tax consultants not only for our company but as well as for our expatriated personnel. ELITAX has been fundamental to our day to day operations being our company involved not only in European countries but as well in Africa and Middle East therefore, in need of international expertise. The knowledge and the attention to us has been faultless.
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.
