Having previously announced, in June, the decision to severely cut the turnover limits for AEs from €32.600 down to just €19.000 for service providers & artisans and €81.500 down to €47.500 for traders

It would seem that this plan has been shelved by the French Government in face of extensive opposition.

The French financial newspaper Les Echos disclosed that they had obtained a draft of the legislation and there were no references to reductions in turnover limits.

An FEDAE (the AutoEntrepreneurs’ Federation) spokesman said that if true, it was a victory for commonsense.  Numerous leading political figures have been throwing their weight behind support for the FEDAE action to convince the Government that such restricted turnover limits would be the death knell for the AE regime.
