Your questions, our answers

Subcontracting your tax preparation 

How many persons will work for my company at Primexis?
Do your professionals speak English?
We are a big organisation. Are you able to manage our accounts?
We are a small firm. Will you process our accounts as if we were a big one?
We keep the accounts of our French subsidiary from abroad. How can you help us?
Is it possible to have our French subsidiary's accounts kept according to our group's chart of accounts?
Which are the documents required at year-end, who requires them, under which format and within which deadlines?

Under the supervision of a partner – chartered accountant, professionals of 3 different levels will assist you: an assistant, a senior assistant and a manager. Our objective is to best adapt the cost of our services to the levels required.

English is an essential requirement to join our IBS department and most of our staff is fluent.To ensure this, Primexis provides in-house English training and translation by native English speakers.

Our firm has been providing assistance to major accounts for more than 45 years. We formerly belonged to one of the big four for more than 10 years and we have kept the same organisation. Our size also allows us to rapidly adapt to all clients requirements. We didn’t need to amend our processes when we became the first French firm to be SAS 70 Type II certified.

We provide the same quality of service to all our clients. In most cases, French subsidiaries are the same size, and their requirements are the same. Meeting deadlines is one of our essential seals of approval as proven by our ISAE 3402 and SSAE 18 certifications.  

We have been dealing with the French subsidiaries of foreign groups for more than 30 years and we thoroughly understand the groups’ internal difficulties (standards, reporting, deadlines…) and their external ones (relations with French tax authorities, employees, statutory auditors…).

Based on our experience, we can ensure perfect integration of your subsidiary in France, as we anticipate and settle in advance a number of issues likely to result in further problems for the group, for example as regards on-time compliance with various changes in French legal, accounting; social and tax regulations throughout the year (new tax, new standard, mandatory electronic transfer of declaration or payment…) or more simply with local habits and customs.

Contrary to branches, French subsidiaries’ books have to be kept in French, i.e., according to a French chart of accounts and with French headings and descriptions, for example, creating a mapping process between the group’s accounts and the French accounts. We are also used to providing assistance in case of a tax audit in France.  

Two summary documents must be prepared. The corporate income tax return required by French tax authorities as a printed document or by electronic data transfer (mandatory in some cases) within 3 months after year-end (4 months if year-end is 31/12). In most cases the same form – 18 pre-printed pages – has to be filled in.

Outsourcing your payroll

We are located outside France and we wish to recruit an employee in France. Can you help us?
Do you manage relations with social organisations?
Can you extract interfaceable HR or accounting data with our software applications?
Will our contacts at Primexis be dedicated to our company?
Is Primexis SAS 70 Type II certified?
Can we entrust you with high-management payroll only?
How do you price your services?
What is the approximate rate of social charges in France – employer and employee parts?

Yes we can. We have a thorough knowledge and experience of the context and formalities required.

Yes we do, notably for foreign structures that have no payroll department in France.

Yes, we can design the interfaces required to enter data with your systems

The team dedicated to your company will include a manager, a senior assistant and an assistant. This organisation guarantees quality (tasks are systematically reviewed) and team availability (at least one of your contacts is always reachable).

We have obtained the SAS 70 Type II certification for 5 consecutive years, after being the first French CPA firm to meet this requirement. In 2011, we obtained the ISAE 3402 and SSAE 16 international and U.S. certifications.

We have requested this certification because most of our clients are subsidiaries of foreign companies,including companies listed in the US.

We have a long experience in part processing payroll, and we know how to return interfaceable information with your accounting and payroll software applications.

Our fees are computed according to the number of employees and the expected tasks.

The employee part of social charges represents about 20% of the gross salary, directly withdrawn by the employer. The employer pays the employee’s part to social organizations, plus about 45% of the gross salary.
