© 2013 Deloitte LLP. Private and confidential. 75% Company Tax French President announced his intention to reintroduce a temporary 75% personal income tax on income earned in excess of EUR 1 Million. Last December, the High Court struck down the 75% tax. Not an employee income tax rate this time around, but a 75% company tax. What does this mean for you? Company social charges & payroll taxes on this income already capped at 25%. Additional tax amounts to an additional 50% in taxes applied. Temporary tax will apply for 2 years. Draft legislation expected in July 6
© 2013 Deloitte LLP. Private and confidential. Qualified vs. non-qualified plans The 2013 Finance Bill amended the tax treatment of qualified awards- no longer the same tax advantages for employees 7 Are qualified plans worth pursuing?

© 2013 Deloitte LLP. Private and confidential. New law What does not change – Qualified Plans New qualified awards will still benefit from the employee deferral of income and social tax until the sale of the shares Company tax of 30% remains payable at grant : choice on taxable basis => strongly recommended to do an plan specific IFRS 2 valuation to reduce employed costs Full exemption from any type of social charges and taxation as capital gain on sale of shares remain for “start-up” company stock option plans : maximum rate is 19% plus 15.5% = 34.5% (before CHR) 10
© 2013 Deloitte LLP. Private and confidential. New law What does change – Qualified Plans New flexibility with holding periods: Stock options – no longer required? Free shares – if release is year 4, no longer required? This is a strict reading of new code articles – may be unintended Reporting at grant linked to social security exemption Stay tuned for legislation in summer/fall 2013 11
© 2013 Deloitte LLP. Private and confidential. New employer qualified plan reporting obligations DADS Reporting is due by the end of January 2014 for calendar year 2013. ‒ For year of grant for free shares/stock options (reporting at grant tied to employer social security exemption) ‒ For year of exercise for stock options ‒ For year of vest for free shares ‒ French sourcing In some cases, individual certificates to be filed with tax administration directly 12
© 2013 Deloitte LLP. Private and confidential. Employer withholding obligations Withholding obligation for French non-residents - both qualified and non qualified plans. Qualified options/awards granted prior June 20, 2007 not subject to any withholding. The plan administrator or the broker is often the responsible party for any withholding due on qualified awards/options at sale. 13 Company action items: Identify responsible party for withholding (plan administrator ? broker ? ) Ensure responsible party is complying Alternatives if not complying: in-house/outsourcing/French broker
© 2013 Deloitte LLP. Private and confidential. Wage tax Beginning in 2013, for equity compensation exceeding EUR 150,000, an additional wage tax will be payable at a rate of 20% by the employer where the business is VAT exempt. So generally applicable to financial industry. The legislation is currently unclear and further clarification is being sought in the wage tax application to qualified equity plans. 14
© 2013 Deloitte LLP. Private and confidential. Action Steps 15 Look at impacts for your population Qualified plans vs. non qualified: not always obvious; remember IFRS2 tax basis, employee deferral Specific attention on international mobility: movement out of France Beware not to disqualify outstanding qualified awards => Additional social charges New flexibility on holding periods Eligible for start-up stock option regime? No company taxes; 34.5%
