The French have many new surprises in June. Many of these changes concern banking products, such as life insurance or PER (retirement saving plan), and borrower insurance. Other concerns concern purchasing power. The continuation of the tariff shield, whose goal is to stop energy prices from rising, can be seen with the head of the bow. It must end on June 30, 2017. "Sud Ouest” takes stock of the changes in June.
The tariff shield on electricity prices is kept in effect until June. Bruno Le Maire stated that there will be no catch up in 2023. "There will be no catch up in 2023 on electricity bills linked to this continuation tariff shield. No one will pay the bill."
Jean Castex, the former Prime Minister of France, announced this measure in September 2021. It allows for prices to be frozen on electricity and gas over time. This device will allow electricity prices to rise to 4% instead of 44.5% as calculated by the Energy Regulation Commission.
The measure is effective as of June 1 and requires that banks and insurers display on their websites a table listing the management fees applicable to each life insurance policy or PER (Retirement Savings Plan). Bruno Le Maire has created a revolution in an often confusing environment. This will be accompanied on July 1st by the total cost of each unit of account and each asset.
