Taxation of the insurance and finance sector

France

Called upon to play a key role in financing the economy and promoting growth, the financial sector faces major challenges in a highly competitive climate. The seismic shift currently taking place within its business model does so against a changing regulatory backdrop, which is characterised by ever more robust and complex regulations specific to this sector (Basel III, Solvency II, BEPS measures, new transparency rules, etc.). Whether you are a key player in banking, insurance or asset management, whether you operate in France or abroad, it is crucial that you can anticipate and avoid fiscal risk, safeguard your business and put in place the most appropriate solutions to enhance your performance.
