法国加密货币税率从45%降至19%

当地一家在线杂志透露,法国国务委员会决定改变加密货币资本收益的分类,从而将税率从高达45%降至19%的固定税率。加上大部分收益需缴纳的普通社会保险捐税(CSG),税率仍低于40%的门槛。

对于加密货币投资者来说,这的确是个好消息。币圈在近期已迎来春天,比特币已涨破 9000 美元大关。

法国最高行政法院国务委员会决定,加密货币利润应该被视为是“可移动的财产”,因此税率有所降低,并重新编写了自2014年以来实施的相关条例。

法国当地的一份报告称,在此之前,加密货币收益属于工业&商业利润或非商业利润。根据这种分类制度,加密货币的资本增值税税率位于最高税率等级——即45%。

归类为“可移动的财产”后,加密货币利润与可运输类资产类似,如车辆、飞机和贵金属以及知识产权。这一类别对于转让加密货币更具吸引力,单一税率为19%。

在你整理行李并前往法国之前,需要了解下新规则的一些例外情况。例如,比特币挖矿过程中产生的利润仍然按照之前的税收标准执行。新规只适用于投资收益。

法国的政策倾向

法国财政部部长勒梅尔(Bruno Le Maire)在今年阿根廷G20峰会上要求将加密货币列入会议议程。貌似由于该国在金融技术方面的领先地位突出,勒梅尔已逐渐接受了比特币和其他加密货币。

他打算让法国在他最近称之为“加密货币革命”起带头作用,该创新既包括获批的ICO项目,也包括尚未获批的ICO项目。

去年,法国开绿灯允许银行使用区块链技术交易未上市证券。

France has more than halved its cryptocurrency income tax rate on capital gains, incentivizing citizens to invest and even take some profits in the market.

The French Council of State has decided to change the classification of cryptocurrency capital gains, thereby lowering the tax rate from as high as 45% to a flat rate of 19%, a French online publication revealed. With the added generalized social contribution (GSC) for most incomes, the tax rate would rise but still falls well below the 40% threshold.

The revision couldn’t come at a better time for cryptocurrency investors, with bitcoin trading comfortably above $9,000 and the other top 10 coins also in the green today.

France’s highest court for administration, the Council of State, determined that cryptocurrency profits are considered “moveable property” and therefore subject to a lower tax rate than had previously been imposed, rewriting rules that had been in place since 2014.

Prior to the ruling, cryptocurrency gains were identified as either industrial and commercial profits or non-commercial profits, the local French report explained. Under this classification system, the capital gains tax for cryptocurrencies was 45% at the high end for residents in the highest tax bracket.

With the new classification as “movable property,” cryptocurrency profits become more akin to assets that can be transported, such as vehicles, planes and precious metals as well as intellectual property. This category attaches a more attractive flat 19% tax rate for transferring cryptocurrencies.

Before you pack your bags and head for France, there are some exceptions to the new rule. For instance, profits generated by the process of bitcoin mining remain subject to the original tax rate. The lower rate is specifically designed for investment gains.

French Policy

France Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire was one of the officials to call for cryptocurrencies to be on the agenda at the G20 meeting held earlier this year. Le Maire has grown progressively accepting of bitcoin and other digital currencies seemingly in light of the country’s leadership position for fintech more broadly.

He intends for France to take the lead with regulation in what he recently described as the “cryptocurrency revolution” and for the country to be a hotbed for blockchain innovation including licensed and non-licensed ICOs.

Last year, France gave the green light to banks to support trading of unlisted securities using blockchain technology.
