The debates on the budget in Parliament will have given the opportunity to the left to denounce the excess of gifts to companies. In the line of sight, the executive’s promise to lower production taxes in 2023, while Nupes demanded a tax on “superprofits”. The government has defended its doctrine: the level of levies must continue to decrease to make the country more competitive and reindustrialize it.
Too many helpers? Too many taxes? It is to shed light on this debate that the Fipeco site, led by François Ecalle, former magistrate of the Court of Auditors, has screened the situation in France and its neighbors. To rule out the exceptional policies conducted during the health crisis – between March 2020 and the summer of 2021, state support for businesses had been evaluated at 230 billion euros – and during the current energy crisis, Fipeco is focused on the 2019 financial year.
