Soft Landing & Customized Support to
Create your Business in France

The Registration Process

The registration of any new business in France is carried out through a business registration center: « Centre de Formalité des Entreprises » (CFE). CFEs provide a one-stop service for companies enabling them to file a single document to register the establishment, modification (registration, address, legal structure, activity etc…) or cessation of their business activity. In general, CFEs are located in either chambers of commerce and industry or the local Commercial Court Registry. On top of providing general advice regarding legal and tax issues, Chambers of Commerce and Industry provide information on setting up a business
