The finance bill was adopted this Wednesday, October 19, 2022. While the debates around the various amendments that make it up have been intense over the past few days, the government has decided to cut it short since it has adopted this draft through Article 49.3 of the Constitution. In total, therefore, 117 amendments have been retained, most of which come from the presidential majority.
This decision was also marked by the government’s refusal to adopt the bill, although carried by the Modem, aimed at increasing the taxation of dividends by 35%, exceeding, on average, 20% over the last five years. If this amendment had received a total of 227 favorable votes, including 19 from Renaissance deputies, Bercy strongly opposed it and the amendment was therefore not retained.
At the same time, a large part of the French continue to see their purchasing power decline, whether in the field of food or energy. Faced with this, the government has adopted several measures in recent months.
This was done in particular within the framework of the purchasing power bill of August 16, 2022. It included in particular a 4% revaluation of pensions as well as several allowances with retroactive effect from July 1.
With the arrival of November, many dates will arrive that will be important for many French people. Allowances, Macron bonus or energy check, here are all the key dates to remember for the coming months in our slideshow below.
