Our chartered accountancy and auditing firm has outstanding and wide-ranging experience in assisting subsidiaries of foreign companies. We also provide a French tax service for expatriates living in France. We handle around 200 tax returns a year for clients receiving income or possessing assets abroad. We apply about twenty Double Tax Agreements (DTAs) signed by France with foreign countries.
Our firm, which was founded in 1976, consists of five partners specialising in best practice in chartered accountancy and auditing, alongside a partner who specialises in social, legal and tax affairs for foreigners, and a forty-strong staff.
Our offices are conveniently located in the Paris region and Le Havre (in Normandy), but we are also in daily contact with more than sixty French towns and cities. We participate actively in the international MSI group (www.msiglobal.org), responding regularly to enquiries and referrals from its members and their clients.
Thanks to our broad field of expertise on issues of international mobility, we can aid you in all your procedures and formalities in France. We are available to be a “one-stop service” for you, providing answers to a whole range of problèmesquestions you may have, primarily through our extensive network of partners (including notaries, lawyers, estate agents and insurers).
We will make sure that your status in France for tax, social security and accounting is secure, and provide you with the support you need to optimise your project.
