Accounting & Tax Filing in France
With a French company, you are required to perform accounting and present various quarterly and annual tax forms. You must also present your annual accounts at la Greffe.
Keeping Up to Date
France and other EU member states are working to bring their GAAP regulations in line with a uniform EU system. Note that accounting for your company must conform to French accounting rules and by law you must have a French registered CPA. You may not perform accounting using UK or USA GAAP rules.
At Incwell, customer support is in your native language. We are experts in performing accounting for companies with foreign clients and providers. We are certified by the tax authorities and by the social security office to send all documents electronically, cutting down on time and costs. All tax forms filed for your company will appear in your online account, as well as quarterly balance sheet and profit & loss statements.
Why choose Incwell to do my accounting in France?
By having an accountant, a corporate/tax lawyer, and a payroll specialist in the same office, your business needs are covered, and information passes between them without requiring your intervention.
We are certified by the tax authorities and by the social security office to send all documents electronically, cutting down on time, costs, and the chances of papers getting lost. It’s more efficient to have both the establishment of the company and accounting for the company done by the same firm. You won’t get caught with two providers telling you some task is the responsibility of the other.
