Company Formation in France
France has been undergoing a tech revolution in recent years and, since 2018, has shed its stereotypical coat of being antipathetic to business. Recent reforms are putting France on an equal footing with other, more traditionally business-oriented societies, and are placing France on the map as a force to be reckoned with when it comes to business - especially tech.

Recent leadership has given France the goal of becoming “the new start-up nation”.

But that’s all changing, and you and your startup could be the driving force behind that change. Indeed, a number of incentives have been introduced to help France achieve this prestigious Silicon-Valley-like status, everything from simplified tax regimes to easier business regulations.
