France: Relocation, Administrative Assistance

Relocation is a niche trade consisting of accompanying and assisting an individual, one or more employees or a company in moving from one country to another. They advise, manage, organise, coordinate, assist and support. Services may include various tasks, depending on the competence and service offering of each relocation company. Some relocation companies target particular regions of France, while others provide remote service anywhere in France. Some relocation companies large companies, others small companies and individuals.

Relocation services may include one or more of the following tasks when moving to France and/or while living in France:

  • House hunting and other assistance buying or renting real estate in France
  • Assistance with planning moving to France
  • Assistance with immigration, visa, residence permit, work permit
  • Assistance finding work in France
  • Assistance with self-employment in France or setting up a business in France *
  • Assistance with car import and registration, driving licence *
  • Internet and telephone connection assistance *
  • Assistance with utilities (electricity, gas, water) *
  • Insurance and banking assistance *
  • Assistance with health care *
  • Assistance with family allowances, housing allowances and other social benefits and allowances *
  • Tax planning and advice, assistance filling out your tax return *
  • Legal advice
  • Assistance accomplishing other administrative formalities *
  • Assistance finding schools and day care centres
  • Assistance finding domestic services 
  • Assistance helping the family to adapt to France
  • Assistance finding French lessons
  • Translation *
  • Informing about living and working in France *
  • Ongoing support while living and working in France *

A total relocation package would cover everything needed to function in the new country.

It is important to target a relocation company adapted to your particular needs. A corporate relocation often requires a wide range of skills only available in larger relocation companies, whereas smaller companies and individuals may find that a one-man relocation company or other administrative assistance sometimes offers a less formal and perhaps less expensive service in the few areas needed.
