Legal documents required to start a project
As a Supplier, you must upload legal documents on the platform, so that we can validate them and you can start your project. Below are the documents to be uploaded on the platform.
Certificate of incorporation
The Certificate of incorporation is an official document attesting to the legal existence of a business or company in France. To obtain it, go to http://www.infogreffe.fr or ask your Business Formalities Center (Centre de Formalités des Entreprises).
The Certificate of incorporation is an extract from the Trade and Companies Register; it is the only official "identity card" of the company; it is the only document officially attesting to the identity and address of the registered person (individual or legal entity), its activity, as well as the existence or not of collective proceedings initiated against it.
You need to update your Certificate of incorporation every 6 months.
As an auto-entrepreneur, instead of the Certificate of incorporation, you can upload a proof of registration in the Sirene directory. To obtain it, go to avis-situation-sirene.insee.fr or ask your Business Formalities Center (Centre de Formalités des Entreprises).
Professional liability insurance certificate
The certificate of professional liability insurance is a document issued by an insurer. It certifies that a person is covered by the insurer for damages that they could cause to others while providing a service. To subscribe, you must contact your company's insurance company.
The certificate proves that the insured has civil liability coverage, which means that in the event of damage, an insurance company will take over from them to repair the damage (and therefore pay compensation) that they would have caused by their fault, negligence or carelessness.
|Depending on your contract with your insurer, your certificate may have a variable duration (from a few months to one year). Depending on the expiration date of the document, you will need to update it regularly on the platform to ensure that you are covered for the entire duration of your project.|
The tax certificate is a document issued by one of the tax services. It is used as a proof of the regularity of the taxpayer's tax situation who requests it.
Companies subject to corporate income tax and VAT can download the tax certificate directly from their online tax account at www.impots.gouv.fr.
A tax certificate is valid for one year, so you must update it on the platform every year.
If your company was founded less than a year ago, you do not have a tax certificate. In this case, you can upload a sworn statement on the platform. In this statement, the Director declares that their company has been in existence for less than a year and that they undertake to provide the tax certificate after the end of the first fiscal year.
