You can benefit from attractive procedures to repatriate the profits from your business in France.

  • Dividends paid to an EU domiciled company : as a principle, no tax deducted at source.
  • Dividends paid to companies non-domiciled in the EU : most tax conventions agreed between France and the main industrialised countries provide for the application of a tax at source on dividends with a limit of 5%. The amount of tax on dividends is calculated in addition to the taxes on other taxable income. Certain conventions allow for no tax at source.
  • Interest payments to overseas companies : in principle are not taxable. No tax at source is due in France.
  • Duties paid to overseas companies : the majority of tax conventions limit the rate of tax at source (from 0 to 15% depending on the conventions). Where there are no conventions, the rate of tax retained at source is 30%.
