Gowling WLG - French tax authorities reduce trustee penalties for failure to comply with reporting obligations

Until now, Article 1736 IV bis of the French Tax Code (FTC) has imposed very high penalties for trustees who fail to comply with filing requirements imposed by French tax legislation applicable to trusts. Following the decision of the Constitutional Court dated 22 July 2016, French tax authorities have made changes to the penalties applicable for failure to comply with some disclosure obligations, in particular the ones applicable to trustees ("circulaire" of 14 September 2016).
