At the moment, the French pay 36.2% of the profits for the sale of cryptocurrency. This increased tax was introduced in a period of rapid growth in the price of Bitcoin. The Finance Commission of the lower house of parliament supported the idea of reducing the payment to 30%.
Starting from 2019, this figure will be spelled out in the French budget. The 30% rate is the base rate for capital gains transactions. In September, the country approved a draft law that introduces the rules for the initial placement and sale of tokens. Although raising funds under state control will complicate the procedure, investors will receive additional guarantees of protection against fraudulent activities.
