Dutch construction company in France
We are a Dutch construction firm and we recently managed to sign on a big project in France. We plan to send our Dutch inhouse engineers, as well as Dutch, German and French subcontractors to the construction site.
After a first round of research, we understood that posting workers to France is a very delicate matter. Although it is not a requirement to have local representation, we felt that the rules were complicated and the risks high enough that we started to look for local representation firms. In addition to this, our client is a French company, this meant that we also needed to invoice French VAT on our sales invoices.
We discovered RM Boulanger while searching for an online tax specialist. They immediately understood our challenges and needs. They took the full administrative burden off our shoulders.
Meanwhile, RMB assisted us in collecting all required documents allowing us to post our workers to our French construction site and to remain fully compliant with local laws. There was little stress to be seen when we received the first inspection on our construction site, as we knew in advance that RMB had every possible question from the labour inspection authorities prepared in advance.
2 years after on we are increasingly active in France, sharing our Dutch know-how and building more projects on the French territory.
