After weeks of hesitation, there is no turning back: as of January 1, 2019, taxes will be paid as income is collected. The introduction of the withholding tax (PAS) (Pay-as-you-earn) is not limited to the proper management of this levy, but constitutes a major change that a company must anticipate and inform its employees about.

Anticipating the reform also means considering the tax treatment of income in 2018, the year of transition between the two tax systems, known as the "blank" year, which is fraught with personal tax issues.

100% of companies located in france are concerned!


For all intents and purposes, they all have become collectors of the income tax due by their employees, and must anticipate:

  • Management of changes for the teams in charge of the PAS project
  • Technical management of the tax withholding system by the payroll teams
  • Training of teams and information to employees

Who do we target?

Corporate senior management

Secure the process, streamline costs.

Finance, accounting, payroll, HR, IT departments

Support the transition, set up procedures and tools, explain the approach.


Understand the impacts of PAS, select options, understand the pay slip.
