The France foundation is created to cover France by the local chapter
We are creating the European Foundation, with a legal entity and bank
account controlled by the global foundation.
We can not convert the France foundation into the European foundation

are doing now.

Requirements are to have an anual meeting with the European board of
directors to approve accounting and set the budget for next year.
Each year a tax declaration has to be done. This will be done by the book
keeper in Belgium, together with the quarterly VAT declarations.
