Innovation is an important driver of growth and a major competitive lever for companies.
Whether through the deployment of cutting-edge technologies, the emergence of new business models or the adoption of new organizational approaches, innovation is a key strategic step for any company, regardless of its sector or size.
The diversity of sources of innovation and its players raises unprecedented tax issues that require rethinking tax advice for companies.
Every innovation process is initially based on an idea. However, in order to generate value for the company, innovation, irrespective of its origin and methods, eventually has to be tested against reality: the needs of the market, competition and regulations.
From a tax perspective, this interaction between innovation and taxation poses two major challenges. The first long-standing issue is to determine to what extent taxation can motivate companies to innovate. The second, more complex issue is to try to reconcile the fast pace of innovation with the slower pace of tax regulations.
This second issue is a major one in a globalized and digitized economy where innovation is shaking up traditional patterns and redefining the concept of value, thus raising new questions about the rules of tax law and its key concepts to capture and tax the value created.
To meet the tax challenges associated with innovation, our ambition is to provide tax advice as part of a collaborative approach that combines adaptation and anticipation to enable companies and players to innovate under optimum conditions.

TWO FOUNDERS, ONE VISION
The two founders share the common experience of having started out in large international audit firms (Big Four) where they very quickly developed a range of cross-disciplinary skills alongside professionals in the field of accounting (statutory auditors, chartered accountants, financial analysts).
Continuing their career with a British law firm, they have assisted numerous small and intermediate-sized companies in their growth and reorganization projects by developing a transactional expertise for companies and their management teams.
Their tax consultancy practice has also been fueled by their experience abroad and within corporations, which finally convinced them that taxation creates value for the company when developed at the earliest stage of a project.
With this in mind, and with 25 years of accumulated experience, PARHÉLIE offers companies agile and tailor-made tax support that takes into account the operational challenges, development strategies, organizational models and values of each company.
