Exclusion of the system Tax Credit for Competitiveness and Employment

The Collectivité de Saint-Martin decides to refer the case to the Administrative Court The Executive Council, which met on 28 October 2014 to 15h, unanimously authorized the President Aline Hanson to refer the matter to the Council of State via the Administrative Court of Saint-Martin, in order to obtain answers to specific questions on the issue of the non-application in Saint-Martin of a specific scheme having equivalent effects to the Employment Tax Credits Tax Credit (CICE).
This referral appeared perfectly legitimate to the members of the Executive Board, since the State deprives the Community's enterprises of the benefit of a public policy which is nevertheless solely within its remit and places them in a very unfavorable competitive situation To companies established in neighboring departments. This referral will take place at the beginning of next week.
Indeed, introduced in 2012 by the government, the CICE is particularly advantageous for the French companies that benefit from it. Its rate will probably be increased for companies in the overseas departments, reaching 9% of the wage bill as of the 1XXXXXXXXXXX. It is important to emphasize that the objective of the CICE is to reduce the cost of labor, a cost on which the Collective really has no control whenever labor law and social law are the sole responsibility of the State . However, companies in Saint-Martin are deprived of it. While national tax provisions are not intended to apply to Saint-Martin, it is inappropriate that no provision having equivalent effect to the CICE is provided for and financed by the State.
What does the law say about this referral?
In accordance with the provisions of Article LO6352-14 of the General Code of Local and Regional Authorities:
The president of the territorial council may, after deliberation by the executive council, apply to the administrative tribunal for a request for an opinion on the interpretation of the statute of Saint-Martin or on the applicability in the community of a law or regulation .
In case of serious difficulty, the President of the Administrative Court may transmit this request to the Council of State.
Where the request for an opinion concerns the division of powers between the State and the community, it shall be examined by the Council of State and shall be transmitted without delay. The representative of the State shall be informed immediately.
The Executive Board therefore decided to make use of this possibility for the first time in order to clarify several points concerning the articulation between the competences vested in the Collectivity and those which remain the sole responsibility of the State.
