Business in France
In order to create a company in France, the associates or shareholders have to put a certain amount of properties at the disposal of the enterprise in order to constitute the share capital.
This deposit of properties is known as contributions (apports in French) and they are three main types: cash contributions, in-kind contributions, and industry contributions.
French companies are identified by the administration and public bodies thanks to two numbers, the SIREN and the SIRET.
