The Minister of the Economy will make new proposals during the Defense Council to support the charges of traders.

Bruno Le Maire wants to make an additional gesture to support small businesses. The Minister of the Economy announces this Thursday on BFM Business that he plans to make new proposals on rents. “We can do a little better. I will make proposals during the Defense CouncilWhich will be held this Thursday morning, he said. “The tax credit can be improved, simplified“, He clarified.

The Minister of the Economy refers to the tax system put in place to encourage lessors to reduce the burden of rents for companies penalized by this second confinement. Landlords thus benefit from a tax credit if they agree to waive one month’s rent over the period of October, November and December. This tax advantage, which represents 30% of the amount of the monthly rent, could be increased. Note that Bercy refused the federations’ proposal to use the security deposit to pay for periods of unpaid bills.

You have to choose the best proposal», Says the minister.

Call to responsibility

Local commerce with digitization adds a string to our bow», Assures the latter.

Regarding Black Friday, “I called on all the players to take responsibility. It is a private promotional operation, it is up to the traders themselves to find a solution“, Boot in touch the Minister of the Economy. “I encourage French consumers to call their bookseller and other neighborhood merchants and buy in local shops rather than doing it on the Internet», Recommends the tenant of Bercy.

Save the month of december

Asked about a possible reopening of shops before December 1, Bruno Le Maire certified that no arbitration has yet been rendered. The subject will be debated during the Defense Council, he assures us.

«We are all faced with the same challenge: to fight against the circulation of the virus in order to continue economic activity under the best conditions. The worst situation is to let the virus thrive. Today, we manage to reconcile the fight against the circulation of the virus and the maintenance of the activity with, I admit it, a category of the population which suffers more than the others.“, He explained. In this regard, the minister urged small traders to solicit “massive aid»Set up by the government by going to the imposts.gouv.fr website.

«The sooner the virus is gone, the faster we will resume normal activity», Hammered the minister.
