T2F Group, Accounting firms for foreign companies
When a foreign company wishes to establish itself in France, the choice of a subsidiary can be judicious in terms of autonomy and tax advantages.
The parent company is not liable for the debts of the subsidiary;
As the subsidiary is established in France, it benefits from the same tax advantages as national companies;
Market penetration is also facilitated.
However, the creation of a subsidiary requires a significant initial investment cost. This structure is therefore reserved for SMEs/SMIs that already have a good financial and organizational base in their country of origin.
How to create a subsidiary?
To create a subsidiary in France, the parent company must constitute a company under French law.
The parent company has the choice between several corporate forms:
The public limited company (SA);
The simplified joint-stock company (SAS);
The limited liability company (SARL);
The sole proprietorship with limited liability (EURL);
Civil society ;
The general partnership.
The choice will be dictated by the adaptation of the corporate form to the activities of the subsidiaries.
