What do I need to do after the incorporation of my company$7

Usually, the steps to comply with after the incorporation of your company are the following:

  • recover the share capital - In order to do so, you will have to open a bank account
  • open accounts with all the beneficial service providers (accountant, insurance, etc.)
  • register for taxes and VAT
  • declare your VAT every semester
  • declare the Corporate Real Property tax (Contribution Foncière des Entreprises in French) before 31/12
  • deposit the company's accounts at the closure of the financial year
  • keep the records of the decisions made in General Meetings and complete them gradually
  • Eventually, for your documents and correspondences, you should consider modifying your letterhead. You should also make sure to mention all the mandatory legal notices on your website.

All documents issued by the company and addressed to third parties must indicate the corporate name, preceded or followed immediately by the name of the legal form of the company, for instance SAS or SARL, SASU, or EURL if you are the only shareholder in your company. The amount of share capital, as well as the headquarters and the place and registration number of the Company should also be mentioned in the documents issued by your company.
