Employing Staff in France – URSSAF Regulations
If you have a company overseas and are looking to hire employees in France, there are some important regulations to abide by concerning the French Social Security System. Before learning about these, you may want to refresh your memory on the details of this system. General information about the URSSAF can be found here: What is URSSAF? – Maupard
Any company that employs staff to perform professional activity in France is legally required to pay contributions to the French Social Security System, even if they are based overseas.
With this in mind, the company must register with the URSSAF department of foreign companies. You do this by filling out the E0 form which can be found online.
Several employee hiring formalities must also be conducted, such as composing payslips and pre-employment statements.
In order to be able to declare and pay the contributions, you may have to appoint a representative, who resides in France and will fulfil the legal requirements on your behalf.
