EOR SERVICES IN FRANCE

Using our EOR services in France allows you to access the opportunities of the French market within days while we take care of the paperwork for hiring your workforce compliantly. With the highest percentage of graduates in Europe, France offers an interesting market to develop your business. However, the French rely on strict labour laws and regulations that might delay your expansion into this country. France has one of the biggest consumer markets in Europe and a reliable, free-market economy: both aspects that can be highly beneficial to the expansion and development of your business. Combined with a well-educated workforce, the country has become a popular international destination for global businesses.

But each new market brings new challenges. These can be worked through efficiently and cost-effectively with the support of an international Professional Employer Organisation (PEO) such as Bradford Jacobs, primarily through our Employer of Record (EOR) framework. This can be best utilised when businesses are just beginning their expansion process and require more information before incorporating an entity and fully establishing themselves in that market.

Why Choose an EOR when Expanding into France?

Our EOR services in France offer our global entity network to companies considering expansion. As an Employer Of Record, we conclude an agreement with both you and the employee who will be working for your company. We become your new workforce’s legal employer (or Employer of Record) and are responsible for taxes, labour laws, and other local regulations that might be unfamiliar to you now. Your company controls employees’ working relationships, work ethics, tasks, and daily responsibilities. We take full responsibility for your employees’:

  • Labour contracts
  • Compliance with French laws
  • Tax contributions
  • Payroll

How Does an Employer of Record Work in France?

Our agency in France will legally hire your selected employees while you are responsible for their day-to-day activities. We currently operate in over a hundred countries where we use local networks of experts, which allows us to gain expert knowledge of local laws and regulations and recruitment customs and trends. By partnering with us as your employees’ EOR, your company will also have access to this specialist knowledge.

Our contract with your employees is 100% compliant with French labour laws and includes benefits such as insurance and pensions. We can hire, onboard, and manage your new employees in France within days. Here is what we can do for you:

  • We hire your new talent compliant with French laws and regulations.
  • We are responsible for the employment contract, HR (Human Resources), taxes, and payroll.
  • We provide and arrange the required visas or work permits for France.
  • Our team keeps your employee in the loop on holiday arrangements, benefits, or changes in labour laws.
  • We keep you posted on French law changes and adapt to these changes compliantly.
  • Your employees’ declarations are sent to us monthly. We will invoice you in time, and once the payment is completed, we will deduct taxes and other contributions and guarantee your employees receive their salary on time.
  • You remain in control of the daily activities and responsibilities of your employee.

What are the Benefits of Using EOR services in France?

The most significant benefit of using our EOR services in France is probably that there is then no necessity for you to set up an entity there. This process can take months, and during this period, it is unlikely that you will have legal resources to pay your employees in France, resulting in a considerable delay in your Global Expansion plans.

Global expansion is an exciting step that often leads to a growing and successful business, but the red tape in a new country can be demotivating and frustrating. Imagine a way to expand your business without red tape globally and at low costs: that is what working with an EOR can do for you. By letting us take care of the hard part, you can focus on the significant part: expanding your business into France.

These are the aspects we can take away from you:

  • Registering with the French Tax and Social Security offices.
  • Immerse yourself in French laws, customs, and regulations.
  • Get familiar with French labour benefits and other contract-related customs.
  • Source and hire potential Talent.
  • Setting up the Payroll system compliantly.
  • Submitting wage tax returns and national insurance forms.
  • Staying up-to-date and compliant with changes in French regulations.
  • Worrying about whether or not you are working compliantly with all laws, restrictions, and regulations.
