Taking Up Residence article: “Doing business in France”
In this month’s edition of Taking Up Residence, I write an article about the basics of French business, legal entities and the main features of the principal models available. You can download the latest newsletter from this site as well as the LinkedIn group Expat Web among the discussions.
My article is pp. 5-7 and includes a link to my page on business in France, but I highly encourage you to read the whole newsletter, as you will it is full of pertinent advice from a wide variety of experts. Taking Up Residence consistently puts out quality information, and I’m happy to collaborate with them on this France project. Thanks to Michiel Schokking for putting this great issue together, and thank you to the other writers. See the message below.
