France has a relatively high corporate tax rate for trading income (approx. 34%) and the tax authorities do not tolerate France company transactions related to companies from traditional tax havens. Nevertheless, a France company’s prestigious status can be used to your advantage, for example, to purchase and hold brand names.
FRENCH LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY (SARL) AS TRADING COMPANY
In case the company director is a person who is a non EU resident: all non EU residents are required to apply for the government authorization if they want to open a SARL in France. This includes applying for an extract of criminal record (not less than 3 months old) which needs to be officially translated into French by a certified translator. A list of translators can be obtained through the French Consulate in the country of residence.
