Company Formation

    NLE: helping you to set up your company in France, the UK or both countries 

    NLE company registration in France

    From choosing the most profitable structure for your new business to finding the best overseas bank account, setting up a company in an unfamiliar country can prove to be a tricky business.

    Our bilingual team in Paris (see here for our London office) are expert at everything from registering your new venture (known as the demande d'immatriculation) to liaising with the French equivalent of Companies House, the Centre de Formalités des Entreprises.

    NLE will also make sure your new enterprise complies with every aspect of French tax law so that you do not fall foul of the local tax office (Centre des Impôts).

    NLE Conseils can act as your company's interface with the French administrative authorities and help make sense of unfamiliar - yet vitally important - institutions such as the Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie, URSSAF and INSEE. We can explain the significance of your NAF code and SIREN and SIRET numbers in clear, easy-to-understand English.

    We offer our company formation and incorporation service to every type of business, from sole traders to franchises and from private limited companies under sole ownership (known as EURLs) to limited companies (SASs).
