Pay as you earn tax system

Pay as you earn tax system - As France moves to the pay as you earn tax system next year, French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has confirmed. It was one of President Macron's campaign promises but fears about teething trouble led to speculation the reform might be postponed. Concerns remain that many French companies won't be ready to implement the reform. Le Parisien newspaper reported massive and completely random mistakes in early testing - including employees paying tax twice or sometimes for other people. But the government said the issues affected a tiny percentage of taxpayers and had been resolved.
