President François Hollande commenced his programme of tax reforms with the second Rectificative (supplementary) Finance Bill for 2012 which came into effect on 18th August 2012.
The tax rises are split fairly equally between households and businesses, but for households, the lion’s share will be borne by those with large assets and/or high incomes.
M. Hollande had outlined various tax reform plans during his electoral campaign. They have not all been included here, so the rest are expected to apply from 2013. This gap may provide key opportunities to plan ahead. If you cannot attend a seminar, please feel able to contact us to undertake an initial personal review, to establish exactly how these proposed tax changes will affect you, and for advice on protecting your wealth from the onslaught of tax rises in France.
The tax rates, scope and reliefs may change. Any statements concerning taxation are based upon our understanding of current taxation laws and practices which are subject to change. Tax information has been summarised; an individual should take personalised advice.
