2017 tax position

Pursuant to Article 117 quater of the French Code général des impôts and subject to certain exceptions, dividends and similar revenues received by individuals who are fiscally domiciled (domiciliés fiscalement) in France are subject to a 12.8 per cent. withholding tax, which is deductible from their personal income tax liability in respect of the year in which the payment has been made. Social contributions (CSG, CRDS and other related contributions) are also levied by way of withholding at an aggregate rate of 17.2 per cent. on such dividend and similar revenues received by individuals who are fiscally domiciled (domiciliés fiscalement) in France.

Under French domestic law, dividends paid by a French company to non-residents of France are generally subject to a withholding tax in France at the time of their payment.

The rate of the French withholding tax is 12.80%. Its amount is increased to 75% if the dividends are paid into a bank account opened in a Non-Cooperative State or Territory (NCST)[1].

[1] The list of NCSTs is published through a ministerial decree and updated each year. At the time of drafting of this document, the list of states and territories qualifying as NCSTs is the following: Botswana, Brunei, Guatemala, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, and Panama.
