When looking for tax or other financial advice, bear in mind that your company should be able to suggest several reliable tax advisers and/or accountants, many of whom may be English speaking. It is also worth contacting the local French tax authorities with any questions (http://www.impots.gouv.fr) although this will be available only in French. For specific advice, in English, you may wish to contact one of the following companies:

  • Paris Private Finance – 82 rue de Provence 75009 Paris, 01.44.63.58.50, http://www.paris-private-finance.com (French and English) is an internationally-focused firm of tax and financial professionals.
  • NLE-SCG Accounting – 79 rue du Faubourg Poissonniere, 75009 Paris, 01.45.23.04.50, http://www.nle-accounting.com (French and English) This is a firm of Franco-British certified accountants who are multilingual and familiar with the needs of an international clientele.
  • PriceWaterhouseCoopers, 63 rue de Villiers, 92208 Neuilly, 01.56.57.58.59, http://www.pwc.fr (French only) The venerable firm handles French and international finances, accounting and taxes for individuals and corporations.

Do not hesitate to contact your local consulate or embassy, as they usually have some contact with your home country tax agency. Your consulate may also be able to recommend tax specialists and/or accountants. For example, to find information about the American Internal Revenue Service in Paris (and even download tax forms), you can consult http://france.usembassy.gov/irs.html.
