What is Taxe d’Apprentissage?

The Taxe d’Apprentissage (T.A.) is an obligatory tax paid by all companies in France, in order to support educational institutions. This tax is mandatory for companies based in France, but the payers have the right to choose the school that is benefiting from their Taxe d’Apprentissage. The T. A. allows schools to finance further development of their technological and professional education. The calculation of the Taxe d’Apprentissage is based on the salaries paid during the previous year of the company. For companies under 250 employees, the percentage of Taxe d’Apprentissage is 0,5% of the total of gross salaries paid to all employees in the year 2013. This percentage is 0,68% of the gross salaries paid, when the company counts more than 250 employees and when the annual average of employees under 26 years with a contrat de professionnalisation or contrat d’apprentissage does not reach a certain point (article 225 in the CGI) .

> All companies in France with more than one employee have to pay the Taxe d’Apprentissage. If they do not specify the school of their choice, the payment of this tax goes to the public educational system.

> Companies have to pay this tax anyway, so why not dedicate it to Paris College of Art! The deadline for T.A. payment is Feb 28th 2015.

Please send your payment and T.A. form to your tax collection organization (OCTA).
