Investment in an SME: the tax reduction soon boostedThe LREM deputies propose to increase the rate of tax reduction from 18 to 30%.
Notice to investors wishing to invest their money in an unlisted SME: the operation should be even more interesting, from a tax point of view, in 2018. The LREM deputies have indeed tabled an amendment to increase the tax reduction granted in this respect, from 18 to 30% of the amounts committed. This measure is likely to pass since it was adopted by the Finance Committee. It should be considered in public session towards the end of next week.
As a reminder, the tax advantage linked to the direct investment in an SME (device often called "Madelin", or "IR-SME") is granted within the limit of 50.000 euros of expenses (100.000 euros for a couple) , knowing that overpayments can be carried forward over the next 4 years. The maximum tax reduction, which is 9,000 euros per year for a single person and 18,000 euros for a couple, currently, would therefore go to 15,000 euros for a single person and 30,000 euros for a couple with the transition to 30%.
However, this reduction will always be subject to the overall ceiling of tax loopholes of 10,000 euros, while it had been envisaged, initially, to boost this threshold to 18,000 euros. A disadvantage that must be put into perspective, because "if the tax reduction exceeds this ceiling, the remainder can be carried over to the next 4 years," said Jean-Christophe Ménissier, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Inocap Gestion, specializing in this type operations.
Another good news, this amendment foresees that the increase of 18 to 30% will also concern the investment in an SME through a Local Investment Fund (FIP) or a Mutual Investment Fund. innovation (FCPI). In this context, the tax reduction is granted up to 12,000 euros of expenses (24,000 euros for a couple). Or a maximum reduction of 2,160 euros (4,320 euros for a couple) currently, which would therefore go to 3,600 euros (7,200 euros for a couple).
Note, these measures are only transient. "This is a temporary measure (...) upstream of sustainable measures supported by the TPE-PME law as well as by the work led by LaREM deputies to financial intermediaries to change their discourse and their products. ", Indicate the authors of the amendment. To follow in 2018, so.
