1993: the European Union opening its borders has created new rules, new formalities, new opportunities and new challenges for companies.
It is in this context that I have founded ASD Group, using my international experience for my clients’ benefit.
But that wasn’t enough anymore. As time went by, the rules became more complex, increasing the administrative work and the risks. This lead ASD Group to turn to new concepts.
To ease our clients’ administrative burden.
To help our clients understand and perform easily complicated and troublesome operations.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” Leonardo Da Vinci
Our clients seek international development. As we free them from administrative tasks, they focus their energy on aiming for success.
So choose our experience and competence, make use of our innovative treatment solutions, made possible by the creation of adapted and personalized tools.
Work in tandem with qualified collaborators who solely aim to simplify your work.
This is the spirit of ASD Group.

Opening up of the EU borders. All import/export operations between Member States became intra-community acquisitions and deliveries. In one night, all customs formalities changed, trade of goods declarations were created. From this opportunity is created ASD, developing a nationwide activity based in Lille. ASD Group assists French companies in submitting DEB (Trade of goods declarations) then follows up by offering the service of fiscal representation for foreign companies in France.
As well as fiscal representation (for companies established outside of the UE), ASD Group sets up a new service for intra-community companies: Tax agent, who handles administrative formalities to ensure compliance with local regulations.
ASD opens its first branch abroad, in Valencia, Spain. At the same time, the company becomes the owner of the offices in Sophia-Antipolis, and therefore settles permanently at 310 rue du Vallon in Sophia Antipolis.
Constantly evolving, ASD Group decides to start operating in Eastern Europe to meet increasing demands. The first ASD Group branch of that part of the world opens in the Czech Republic.
ASD Group exceeds a turnover of a million euros. The company continues to develop and strengthen its expertise.
ASD Group extends its network of agencies in Europe and opens new branches in Poland (Warsaw and Katowice) and Belgium (Comines).
Many Swiss companies would call upon ASD Group for fiscal representation in Europe. In 2009, the step is taken and the first non-community branch is created at Marin Epagnier in Switzerland. This development also allowed to offer a new service: Fiscal representation and VAT reimbursement in Switzerland.
The European directive and VAT regulations go through a major change in 2010. The VAT package is established and terms of VAT refund evolve. 2010 remains an important year of reference in legislation.
ASD Group continues to expand and opens to African and Asian markets, by creating agencies in Morocco (Casablanca) and China (Shanghai). These far-away markets are strategic countries for ASD Group. These agencies allow to build closer relations with current clients in these countries but also to offer new services to our european clients.
To gain a better understanding of the Chinese market, and to assist its agency in Shanghai, ASD Group creates and opens a new branch in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is the core platform for South East Asia.
In order to continue assisting its clients development, ASD Group opens a new branch a new continent. The Montreal agency in Canada is created in 2013.
An ever-increasing activity, new clients and a growing team. ASD Group decides to expand its headquarter at 310 rue du Vallon. 250 m2 of brand new office space are added to the existing 200m2.
2016 is an important year for ASD Group. A new agency opens in Dubai, new collaborators join the team. The milestone of 100 collaborators and the 3 600m2 of cumulated office space is reached and exceeded.
The goals for this coming year is, amongst others, reaching a turnover of 12M€ for the group.
ASD Group continues reaching new markets: a new agency opens in the USA in California. As the team is constantly growing, space is added to the headquarter in Sophia-Antipolis.
