Banking Group Subsidiaries

Our team of 30 employees specializes in banking groups and managing their subsidiaries or dedicated vehicles. We take care of the accounting, tax, and regulatory obligations for banking group subsidiaries. We work with our clients in outsourcing engagements, in particular for financing companies, SPVs, holding companies, online brokers, investment companies, and payment service providers. 

Your challenges 

Have you created a new activity, and now, your tools and processes are still under development and your team has not been recruited yet? Do you want to cease an activity and reclassify your employees without waiting for the entity’s liquidation? Is your team’s workload irregular, and you face periods of under- or over-activity? Is your subsidiary’s activity different from your core business? Does your subsidiary have specific accounting and tax regulations? As an international group, have you created a subsidiary in France, but its activity is too low to recruit employees with the necessary skills? 

Primexis’ team dedicated to Banking Group Subsidiaries can help you find a solution tailored to your specific needs.

Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)

We are able to produce accounts for multiple SPVs in a very short turnaround time. The financial instruments carried by these SPVs (in various legal forms) can be different in nature: asset financing in the form of finance leasing or Collateralized Debt Obligation (CDO). These SPVs are generally subject to French Corporate GAAP (PCG 2022) instead of the French Bank GAAP (PCEC) like financial institutions.

Our areas of expertise 

  • Accounting 
  • Reporting 
  • Tax obligations (including tax integration) 
  • Legal 
  • Consolidation packages 

Financing Companies

Our area of expertise covers the middle office, back office, accounting, tax, and regulatory functions. We use the Cassiopae lease management software.

  • These companies work in financing in the form of real estate and equipment leasing as well as PPP (Public & Private Partnership) 
  • Certain operations have a tax effect, and these companies are consolidated

Subsidiaries & Branches of International Groups

Accounting is generally done abroad by the parent company or by the SSC. Our firm assists subsidiaries or branches that typically do not have the critical mass in France to have a finance function. Their activity is varied: payment service providers, online brokers, online banks, or investment companies.  

Our areas of expertise 

  • Correspondence plan between the group chart of accounts and PCEC 
  • Reprocessing IFRS, UK GAAP, or US GAAP to comply with the PCEC accounting principles  
  • Corporate accounts, current tax declarations, and tax returns 
  • Regulatory statements
