The new minister of the Action and of the public Accounts, Gérald Darmanin said this Thursday on CNews that the deduction at source “will not happen” if it turns out to be a “source of complexity for businesses”, hence the line adopted by the President Macron.
The collection of taxes at the source, which should enter normally into force on 1 January 2018 will be there on the day as planned ? This Thursday, questioned by CNews on the day following his taking office, the new minister of the Action and of the public Accounts, Gérald Darmanin, born out of the Republicans, said : “If it is a source of complexity for businesses, we will not do this, this is what was said by the President of the Republic.”
The minister recalled that Emmanuel Macron wanted “a break” for that to be studied “the process” and “listen to the trade unions, employers, companies, individuals, not to weigh down” procedures. The may 5, Emmanuel Macron has announced its intention not to implement the scheduled date, during an interview on RTL. He explained that he wanted “tobe sure of the burden that this represents for the business leaders (…). It is also necessary to understand the impact that it will have for our fellow citizens psychologically. You will receive a payroll where, optically, your salary will be cut. (…) These are things that can be explained“.
The measure, criticised by the professional organisations, in particular for the burden that it represents for companies, therefore, could well be delayed, despite the new decree, and the decree published on 10 may, just before the assumption of office by the new President .
This decree specified the information that is reported and received every month by the collector as well as the timing of transmission of these data.
