Doing Business in France 2017 - Government support and finance (Booklet 3)

GOVERNMENT SUPPORT AND FINANCE

There are more than 25,000 foreign companies operating in France, where they employ nearly two million people: what better advert could there be than this for the business environment in our country? Its steadfast attractiveness as a business location can be seen in that France was ranked third in Europe in 2015 for the number of job-creating foreign investment projects received, and was also the leading destination for foreign investment in industry.

With its global outlook and warm welcome for talent in all its forms, France is committed to doing all it can to attract and help investors expand their businesses on French soil. This “Doing Business” guide is designed in the same spirit of hospitality, as it seeks to provide key information to investors on a full range of regulatory, tax and employment law matters that may arise when setting up and running a foreign subsidiary in France.

Written by Business France experts in association with specialists from leading law firms, auditors, accountants and human resources consultants, it provides clear, authoritative and detailed advice in line with the needs of entrepreneurs.
