'At source' tax WILL go ahead next year

The Connexion, Sep 5

Edouard Philippe stated on the TF1 20.00 news that, despite previous misgivings, the reform is being maintained.

Public Accounts Minister Gérald Darminin met with Mr Philippe and President Macron yesterday to answer questions on the reform to ease concerns about whether it would be ready to work properly next year. The president had said he was looking for “precise answers” before making a final decision on the reform.

This comes after newspaper Le Parisien reported they had seen a Finance Ministry report which revealed the new systems were full of bugs.

Mr Philippe said on TF1 that while the changes would be “technically complex”, “we have the guarantee, the certainty and the conviction that this reform will be put in place in good conditions”.
