France is a popular place to settle for both business and residential purposes. However, purchasing real estate in a foreign country is a major step. RFN provides advice and assistance to companies and private individuals concerning all legal and tax issues related to real estate transactions in France.
The legal and tax treatment of your business premises in France largely depends on whether the property has been bought by the parent company in your country of origin or by a local French firm. RFN calculates the pros and cons, thus allowing you to make a well-founded choice between both options.
In addition, we advice businesses and private individuals concerning all legal and tax matters connected to the ownership of real estate in France, such as managing property, holiday rentals, donating and inheriting property, and the fiscal treatment of real estate transactions and this further to our mission of accountancy and filing of tax declarations (compliance).
The correct order of things
“Some time ago, I discussed with RFN my intent to buy real estate in France. My advisor explained to me that, in this particular case, the best option was to have my company purchase the property.”
"RFN suggested that I should settle the planned donation of shares to my children before buying the property. "
“He also suggested that I should settle the planned donation of shares to my children before buying the property. I consider myself fortunate to have a consultant who thinks along with me. By following the correct order of things – first donating the shares and then buying the property – my children were able to save a substantial amount of money.”
