Meeting in plenary on Tuesday, 11 last March, the executive council focused on a deliberation to amend the regulation on the implementation of the exchange of driving licenses issued by the authorities of Sint-Maarten.

3) - Investment tax assistance scheme provided for in Article 217 of the General Tax Code of the Community of Saint Martin. Opinion of the Executive Board on an investment project envisaged by a Martinique company.
Companies subject to the Saint-Martin Community's corporate tax may deduct from their taxable income the amount of productive investments they make in Saint-Martin in priority economic sectors, in particular the transport sector and the The amount of subscriptions to the capital of certain companies. As a result, the investment tax deduction scheme is very advantageous since the company making the investment does not actually become taxable on its profits until the cumulative amount of the investment exceeds the amount of the investment executed.
A company headquartered in Martinique, a subsidiary of a reference group in the French West Indies in Guadeloupe, Martinique and St Martin, operates land transport of goods and containers in St Martin. This company is considering the creation of a secondary establishment in St Martin to mainly transport goods marketed by another company in the group. To do so, it would acquire a new 4.2 tons vehicle in the amount of 30 990 euros and ask the Community to benefit from the tax exemption regime in force on our territory. If the Community's tax system is exclusively reserved for businesses based in St Martin, the Community since it acquired the jurisdiction of source, imposes to the corporation tax all the companies in the conditions of right A result achieved in St Martin, even if the seat is located outside the territory. As a result, the exclusion of non-resident companies from the scope of the tax exemption regime provided for in Article 2017-A of the COM tax code is no longer justified. The law will soon be groomed.
The Executive Council therefore gave a favorable opinion to this request for tax exemption, adding an obligation for the company to buy the vehicle on the French part of Saint-Martin.
ADOPTED UNANIMOUSLY

Guest-Houses ranking

The Community structures its tourist offer
Marigot, 26 November 2013 OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT DIRECTORATE OF COMMUNICATION Subject: Article Guest Houses / External letter n ° 1 Classification of the Guest Houses: The Collectivity structures its tourist offer In exercising its regulatory competence in the field of tourism, The Collectivité de Saint-Martin is continuing to set up legal bases aimed at structuring the offer of tourist accommodation in our destination, with the aim of proposing criteria of appreciation known and appreciated by the international clientele. Following the adoption of a reference system for the classification of hotels and tourist residences, the Collectivité adopted a ranking reference system for accommodation establishments commonly known as "Guest House". Thus, during the Territorial Council on Thursday 27 February 2014, the elected representatives voted unanimously a deliberation fixing the classification of these Guest Houses or guest rooms. While the quality of a bed and breakfast is measured in Epis in France, it is now possible to evaluate the quality of a Guest-House accommodation in Saint-Martin. The creation of this repository was based on the local reality of these accommodations following an audit, and on a customer study carried out in the countries corresponding to our issuing markets. The Guest Houses are thus classified from 1 to 5 stars (without there being any obligation for the owners to subscribe to this new regulation), a classification that allows tourists mainly to locate themselves in a relatively large market . The objectives are also an official recognition of this type of accommodation as a major component of the Saint-Martin accommodation park, a clarification of the definition of this term with fuzzy outlines and an improvement of the product itself. This is a great step forward for our Community, which has been working since 2012 to improve its tourism offering, in order to offer the international clientele a better structured and coherent product. BOX What is the approach to getting a star rating? In order to qualify as Guest-House, an establishment must have less than ten rooms intended for a passing customer, it must at least offer a breakfast service each morning. The operator of a Guest House wishing to obtain a star rating must apply to the Collectivité (Direction du Tourisme) who will explain the procedure to be followed. He / she must return the file in duplicate (one in digital form) containing the duly completed filing form, and the visit certificate issued by an assessor body accredited by the Collectivité. 2 BOX What are the ranking criteria? The ranking criteria are divided into three chapters: "Equipment", "Customer Service", "Accessibility and Sustainable Development". To be awarded one or more stars, the institution must meet certain qualitative criteria and must obtain according to a precise scale a number of points corresponding to these criteria. It is the classification committee which meets within two months of receipt of the complete file which decides on the application. The commission is made up of six members: 3 representatives of the Community, 1 representing the operators of Guest Houses, 1 representative of the Tourist Office, 1 representative of the CESC. The Executive Board shall then decide on the final classification of the establishment in the light of the opinion of the Committee. Ordered by decree, the classification is valid for a period of five years.

Mobilizing against chikungunya

Saint-Martin is in the epidemic phase of chikungunya Let's mobilize against chikungunya
 
Since the 6 December 2013, Saint-Martin is in epidemic phase of chikungunya. The community of Saint-Martin asks the population to protect as much as possible against this infectious disease transmitted by the mosquito Aedes Aegypti.
Outbreaks of the epidemic are now being detected throughout the country, with Sandy Ground being the most affected. The virus has also spread to the islands of St Barthelemy, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Guyana.
This situation should therefore be taken very seriously and the mobilization of all is a sine qua non condition for the eradication of chikungunya.
The population must therefore guard against this virus, prevention being the most effective way of fighting it.
This prevention is based on two levels:
 
- At the individual level, it is necessary to limit its own exposure to the mosquito vector by wearing long clothing, applying skin repellents, and using insecticides on clothes and mosquito nets.
- Collectively, large-scale vector control consists of precautionary spreading of insecticides and elimination of potential breeding sites, especially around dwellings (flower pots, miscellaneous containers, used tires, bulky waste, etc.).
 
At the request of the ARS, the Community of Saint-Martin conducts communication campaigns aimed at sensitizing the entire population, private individuals and private companies, and mobilizes all its teams to reduce potential lodgings (Cleaning of cemeteries, eavestroughs on public buildings, cleaning of public buildings, identification and removal of carcasses, etc.).
 
The president of the territorial council, Mrs Aline Hanson, is counting on the cooperation and mobilization of all for the eradication of this epidemic.
