Withholding of income tax and the B2B SEPA mandate.


In January 2019 withholding of the income tax will become a reality of the French payroll.

The employer will deduce the income tax from the employee’s gross salary and pay the tax to the fiscal authorities.

The SIEE (French fiscal authority for foreign company) will only accept direct debit payment.

To allow for this direct debit, every company needs a B2B international SEPA mandate with the SIEE.
