International Umbrella Company Solution for France
How Does It Work?
How does our International Umbrella Company Solution for France work?
France has the third largest economy in Europe, and as a consequence has a strong need for flexible labour which presents freelance workers with numerous contracting opportunities.
Unfortunately, high levels of social security in France can come as quite a shock to expatriates who are used to paying lower levels in their home country.
Our French payroll solution is specifically designed for UK tax residents and allows you to work in France without paying French social security. Our solution engages you as an employee through our UK umbrella company and utilises an A1 certificate in order to “second” you into France without entering you fully into the French tax system. Our compliance team ensure you satisfy all legal requirements for operating in this manner before we begin processing your pay.
