SMEs in France
France is not only the most popular tourist destination in the world, but is also very attractive to companies looking to set up in another country. As a member of the Monetary Union, Eurozone and the European Union single market, as well as holding its place amongst the top 10 largest economies in the world, France is an ideal location for an SME.
SMEs are essential to the French economy and are encouraged to set up a base in France. Indeed, they make up approximately 99% of all enterprises in France and employ around 60% of the country’s workforce.
In order to be considered an SME in France, the company must employ under 250 staff and have an annual turnover of no more than 50 million euros or a balance sheet of no more than 43 million euros.
