Our business code

L'ÉLAN goes above and beyond to offer the best level of expertise to all our clients, including companies, specialised firms and expatriates in France. We are firmly committed to seven key principles in our work with you:
Respecting personal and corporate needs is the cornerstone of our working method. We won’t do anything or disclose any information without your prior consent. This is the very foundation of our reciprocal trust.

Our application of the French data protection act, the “loi informatique et libertés”, regarding the principles of data protection when collecting, processing and storing personal information complies with the recommendations of the CNIL (Data Protection Commission). No personal information is outsourced.

Exemplary regulation watch
Our knowledge and mastery of the legislation relating to foreign nationals, employment, taxation and social security are at the heart of our business and the added value we offer. We perform meticulous daily monitoring of such legislation and report back to you via brief updates which you’ll receive when working with us. They’ll fill you in on the essential details so you can apply the new procedures right away.

A real network within government offices
Over the years, L'ÉLAN has created a real network of links and contacts within the relevant government offices so we can process our clients’ requests quickly and efficiently. A necessary part of all procedures related to work and residency permits, government offices are also a source of reliable knowledge. The information and good practices used by L'ÉLAN are regularly validated by these organisations themselves.

Demanding standards given the legal and personal responsibilities involved
Successful mobility projects aren’t just about complying with the legal obligations. We also have to take the personal dimension into account so the expatriate or inpatriate, but also the host or originating company, feel confident during their experience.

Practical support to ensure compliance with the law
Rapidly changing immigration legislation, countless regulations and legal precedents create a complex legislative landscape where it’s sometimes difficult to identify the right procedures. Up to speed with the current legislative framework, our objective is to offer you concrete support in the applicable procedures and give you the advice and information you really need.

A complete service
Impatriation or expatriation can be a long process, with a whole series of stages you have to be able to identify and respect. They can be particularly long depending on the type of mobility. We offer you useful advice and informed support to ensure a smooth integration into the host country, and return to your country of origin, with the help of our partners.

With our fixed-price services, there aren’t any nasty surprises. Just ask and we’ll send you a price based on your request.
