With nearly 30 years’ experience in social protection in France, MIA Assurances has forged numerous partnerships and negotiated essential facilities on your behalf. Find out here what foreign companies in France need to know:

1. Retroactive effective date

The possibility of choosing a retroactive effective date is a crucial advantage. It allows you to cover medical expenses already incurred by your employees before the policy is taken out, thus avoiding any unforeseen financial inconvenience. A retroactive effective date means that medical expenses incurred by your employees since the start of their employment contract will be covered, giving your employees peace of mind.

2. Payment of contributions from a foreign account

The ability to pay contributions from a foreign account simplifies financial management for international companies.

3. Take out a policy before obtaining a SIRET number

Being able to take out your contract before obtaining your SIRET number is a step that allows you to prepare your social protection effectively before starting your operations in France. This means that you can put in place cover for your employees even before your company is fully operational.

4. Outsourcing administrative tasks

Delegating the administrative aspects to your payroll firm is a practical solution that makes it easier to manage your employees in France, saving you time and ensuring you are compliant.


Health and provident insurance: compulsory cover in France

When a foreign company decides to set up in a new market, it faces a series of challenges. Laws, regulations and risks vary from one country to another, making it essential to have appropriate insurance to cover these specific risks.

In France, offering your employees health and provident cover is a legal requirement. But beyond this obligation, it is a strategic investment for your company. That’s why it’s essential to choose an insurance policy that meets your specific needs.

Points to bear in mind when choosing your insurance contract

A mutual insurance contract will reimburse healthcare costs in addition to the French Social Security system. Offering your employees a comfortable level of cover is an undeniable asset for building loyalty.

All employees in France should be able to benefit from company social security cover. However, it’s not just a question of complying with the regulations. Offering your employees a comfortable level of cover is an undeniable asset for attracting and retaining talent. By choosing your insurance policy wisely, you are investing in the safety and well-being of your team, which translates into greater motivation and productivity.
