The French government is cracking down on business chiefs of companies listed in France to make sure they are paying their taxes in France, Budget Minister Gerald Darmanin said in a newspaper interview on Sunday.
President Emmanuel Macron had already signalled a hardening stance on corporate tax affairs in a December speech aimed at quelling unrest in France following weeks of sometimes violent protests over a perceived squeeze on household incomes.
“As the president has said, the heads of companies listed in France, or which count the French state as a shareholder, must under all circumstances be tax residents in France,” Darmanin told the Journal du Dimanche (JDD).
