法国是切削税率为零售加密贸易商

Amateur cryptocurrency investors in France are currently stung heavily when it comes to tax day, but that is about to change, reports indicate.

The French Council of State, the body that advises the government on legal matters and acts as the supreme court for administrative matters, announced Thursday that profits arising from cryptocurrency sales should be considered as capital gains ofmovable property” – a decision that will see the tax rate levied drop significantly, according to a report from Le Monde,

目前, gains from the sale of cryptocurrency trading are normally consideredindustrial and commercial profits” (BIC码), while those from occasional transactions are treated asnon-commercial profits.

This means that tax on crypto gains can be as high as 45 percent for higher-band taxpayers, and that’s also in addition to the country’s generalized social contribution (CSG) 的 17.2 百分, 报告说,.

Classifying cryptos as movable property (as the name suggests, these are assets that are not fixed in place like buildings), 然而, brings a flat CGT liability of 19 百分, plus CSG.

Le Monde adds, 然而, that the Council of State said certain types of transaction may howeverfall under provisions relating to other categories of income,” and that proceeds from cryptocurrency mining as well as commercial activities related to the technology will still be taxed at the BIC rate.

The move comes after several investors took a case to the supreme court over the harsh tax regime, 根据报告.
