SETTING UP YOUR BUSINESS IN FRANCE
Creating a business in France is no walk in the park especially if your knowledge of the French language and French legal and fiscal system is limited. The registration of any new business in France is carried out through a business registration center: « Centre de Formalité des Entreprises » (CFE), a one-stop service for companies enabling them to file a single document to register, change (registration number, address, legal structure, activity etc…) or close down their activity.
The CFE in Rennes is located at the Ille-et-Vilaine Chamber of Commerce & Industry : 2 Avenue de la Préfecture, 35042 RENNES
If your language proficiency and your knowledge of the French legal and fiscal systems are adequate, feel free to download the various forms needed to create a company in France from the Rennes Chamber of Commerce website.
