Tax representatives for VAT in France (appointed by the company) is primarily responsible for fulfilling all their clients’ tax obligations and, if necessary, transferring outstanding VAT payments to the tax or customs authorities (circumstances addressed in Article 289A of the Code Général des Impôts (French Tax Code).
Tax & Consult was created in 1993, the year the European Union was established. Its scope of activity was subsequently extended to include authorized tax representation for companies paying VAT in France and operating within the EU.
Throughout its development, the company focused increasingly on the internationalization of the exchange of goods and services. From the outset, it benefited from a favorable location in a dynamic geographical area oriented towards international trade – the Région des Trois Frontières, on the border between Basel, Freiburg im Breisgau and Mulhouse. In particular, this fostered the creation of a German-speaking team.
We have several partnerships, with KPMG as well as logistics companies and international firms of tax lawyers and tax consultants. Thanks to them, we can offer our clients a comprehensive business approach, tried-and-tested business practices and solid experience in setting up international logistics frameworks, including aspects relating to customs law.
The value of partnerships between accountancy firms and tax representatives lies in the fact that their business areas complement each other. Consequently, they can either offer clients selective consulting services or provide support during their clients’ long-term development (hiring employees in France, setting up a liaison office, branch or subsidiary).
