Bruno The Mayor has obtained gain of cause. And not a little. The minister of the Economy, of Finance, of the Stimulus, which called for months to find the margins of budgetary manoeuvre for reducing taxes of productions, announced Wednesday, July 15, a significant decrease. In the framework of the recovery plan should be detailed at the end of August, the government will provide $ 20 billion in reductions to these levies which weigh heavily on companies ' balance sheets before they even know if they have made profits. The decline will be 10 billion by 2021, and then again 10 billion more by 2022.
The minister had already announced that he aimed, in priority, the CVAE, the contribution on the added value of the companies, a component of the territorial economic contributions (CET), which had replaced the professional tax abolished by Nicolas Sarkozy. The only problem is that a good share of the revenue of the CVAE, which weighs on the companies that make more than 500,000 euros turnover with an increasing rate based on this turnover, abounds today the budget of the regions. The State will therefore have to compensate for the loss of income for the regions, except to trigger their lightning. Bruno The Mayor has committed to do so fully by another recipe " dynamic ". Understand that increases with the growth. This could be, for example, a share of VAT.

But this tax, François Hollande had started to remove, don't touch more than the very large companies. It recommended, then, in a second time, remove the CVAE, as it would constitute " a major simplification of the taxation of companies, since they would no longer have specific declaration to pay the CVAE ", a statement which can be complex because of the numerous exemptions, rebates... " another important advantage is that the removal of the CVAE, the more that a further reduction in the rate of tax on companies beyond those already planned by 2022, would support a large part of the companies, as well as those generating the profits that those in difficulty, or even the companies in expansion phase which, for example, are investing heavily but still make little profit.

Critical regions and other communities
The association of regions of France does not hide his hostility to a decrease of the CVAE, which would be decided by the State.
