A THREE-YEAR exemption from the new CFE business tax may be extended to all auto-entrepreneurs.
Small Business Minister Frédéric Lefebvre has said he wants to bring in a legal amendment, after a federation representing people in the simplified business regime criticised the tax, which they said in some communes is a minimum 2,000 euros.
CFE is a replacement for the taxe professionnelle, which was “abolished” with much government fanfare at the start of this year. Bills have been sent out with a deadline of December 15.
People becoming auto-entrepreneurs, a regime dating from last year intended to encourage people to try working for themselves, can be exempt for three years if they opt for a special method of paying income tax.
