Tax in France : so what, now ?


No, France is not a tax heaven, whatever tax credits, “niches” and loopholes they may have, grow or invent for entrepreneurs and rich people to stay and create jobs, finance innovation and buy or export “made in France” goods. Not yet.


And some rich and famous with brains, not only quite good football and rather average tennis players, have realized that the French borders, not to mention the Berlin Wall(s), are over.


But no, not all the rich and have of France rush to, or stay in Britain, whatever “Tapis Rouge” here and there.

And things may change in France, thanks to climate change and heavy raining and snowing in Europe.

Change for the better with the support of the best tax-experts and consultants.

Things may improve thanks to computers.


As France goes for world’s best practices, benchmark(et)ing and state of the art tax techno and propaganda.

Things may improve step by step, after a few coffee cups in Paris-Bercy …


Things may really improve, if and when French tax ministers read English.


Lenine used to say “The Soviets are communism with electricity”. Nowadays France may be communism with a keyboard and coffee.

Where do the #French go ? Very Bad Trip ? The Answer, my Friend, is Blowing in the Wind …

German reunification and the Euro were the last big footsteps for small Europe, which mankind watched on TV. Now, if the French wanna try reborn socialism with gay marriage, no food, no Euro and no free press, let’s see about it on the internet.

If some other broke European countries wanna join second class Euro(pe), be it because they too wanna believe in utopias because they think dreams are better nightmares than real life, or because they have no more choice than Eastern Europe after WW2 or German democrats after 1933 elections or the free world after 1929 crisis, let’s not start a war for that and remember what the previous French socialist Leader Maximo, François I, used to say before Germany reunified : “I love Germany so much, that I am happy there are two”. Everybody loves Euro(pe) so much, let François II create its Europe II with the Club-Meds (and perhaps let French German speaking Alsace-Lorraine and Northern German thinking Italy stay in Berlin/Brussels co-managed Europe I to avoid the risk of WW3 this time, and let the Brits chose freely if they prefer to join Euro(pe) 2 for the sake of “Entente Cordiale”, Euro(pe) 1 in Memory of the German name of the Royals, the United States at last, or no new alliance yet because they wanna wait and see who wins, because they trust they can afford a Churchill/Elisabeth fortitude (though they are not sure America could/would help), again, or because they have the Commonwealth and they think it’s enough to rule the Pacific waves again in the coming brave new Asian world. Anyway, if you cannot avoid it, watch it.

And if some French wanna escape this France, let them do : some will choose Germany in Memory of their ancestors (be they collaborators or Europhiles, or both, or neither but just German speaking for some Reason) and because they like German beer and free driving ; some will choose London for the sake of “une certaine idée de la France” and because they prefer lower taxes and fish and ships to Currywurst ; some will go to America because they have got used to slow driving and poor coffee or want to do business with Asia but prefer junk food to Chinese Soup or Japanese Sushi ; others will go anywhere but France, because they think people should be allowed to work and get paid for it and create entrerprises and make money out of it and not be insulted for that whatever works, but France. Of course, some of the French press will say that such people don’t deserve the honour of the Grande Nation’s citizenship : let the media talk as long as they can and let the French walk their talk, as long as they can …

Honni soit qui Noah’s (tax strategy) Ark y pense …

As the French (economic advisor to François II, Karine Berger and co-writer Valérie Rabault) say, “Les trente glorieuses sont devant nous”.

Let it be (French ?) and hope it will not last 30 years.

It’s not as if it could last 70 years anyway, the world has changed. And even Franch laws and promises and advisors and polls and media ownership can change, re-change, re-re-change …, be they in favour to or against more or less (usually silly) taxes, marriage, the size of housing or the price of electricity, for instance, with the exception of the petit livre rouge du code du travail and the dialogue social(iste), et environnemental à visage humain, of course, even if all this goes against economic rationale and/or European laws, if the exception française or the next elections so require …

After all, France is “LE Pays de la Raison“, isn’t it ?

Some additional e-reading may be needed about Europe, Euro-nomics, France, Frenchonomics, the options for Competitiveness in France in spite of it all

French Politics, European Politics, Future with or without Civilized Face, Whatever Works or even more important issues like the proper temperature for  Sauternes Sweet Bordeaux White Wine with Foie Gras (some drink Red Bordeaux with Foie Gras, as long as they do it at home without witnesses …) or the Religion of Groucho Marx French Ancestors.

Please click on hereafter pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching the weather forecasts on Fox TV and let others enjoy sun, success, beach, love, Champagne, French learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times and the Economist.


Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).
