Accounting rules in France

  • Tax Year

    • Calendar year unless the taxpayer opts for a different end date or a different tax period.

  • Accounting Standards

    • The French accounting system is based on French GAAP. As a member of the EU, French law is in accordance with European Commission (EC) Regulation No. 1606/2002, which requires the application of IFRS in the preparation of consolidated financial statements of listed companies.

  • Accounting Regulation Bodies

    • ANC

  • Accounting Reports

    • All SAs must publish annual financial data and deposit two copies of the approved balance sheet and profit and loss (P&L) statement with the local commercial court within seven months of the end of the financial year and within one month of approval of the accounts.

    • A listed SA must publish its annual balance sheet, P&L statement, quarterly sales figures for each branch of activity and a semi-annual provisional balance sheet. Subsidiaries of these companies with a balance sheet of EUR 3 million or more, or portfolios of EUR 300,000 or more, are individually subject to these disclosure requirements. The statement of source and application of funds is compulsory for large companies.​

  • Publication Requirements

    • There are three levels of reporting: the basic system (normal), an abridged system (for small companies) and a developed system. They depend on the legal form and size of the companies (defined in relation to the total of the balance sheet, the turnover and the number of employees).

    • The reporting is annual, except for listed companies for whom reporting is quarterly.

  • Professional Accountancy Bodies

    • OEC , The Higher Council of the Order of Chartered Accountants

    • CNCC , The National Company of Auditors

  • Certification and Auditing

    • Companies have to seek a statutory auditor to conduct an annual audit of the financial health of their organisation. You can contact an external audito and we can help you for the choice.
