REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF TUESDAY 11 MARS 2014
The Executive Council of the Collectivité de Saint-Martin met in plenary session on Tuesday 11 March 2014 at 15h, under the chairmanship of Aline Hanson, President of the Territorial Council of Saint-Martin. The elected representatives adopted a deliberation concerning the exchange of driving licenses with the Dutch authorities, a deliberation aiming to grant an individual assistance allowance for training and exceptional assistance. They also validated the agenda of the next territorial council to be held on Thursday 27 March 2014.
Meeting in plenary session, Tuesday 11 last March, the executive council mainly focused on a deliberation aiming at modifying the regulation concerning the implementation of the exchange of driving license issued by the authorities of Sint-Maarten.
1) - Amendment of the Regulation on the implementation of the exchange of the driving license issued by the authorities of Sint-Maarten:
Through this deliberation by the Directorate of Community Services, the Executive Council was asked to modify the date from which it is considered feasible to obtain the different categories of driving license in the territory of the Collectivité de Saint-Laurent. Martin. This date has been set for December 31 2005. Therefore, only permits issued by the Sint-Maarten authorities between the 1er January 1995 and 31 December 2005 will be exchanged by the community of Saint-Martin. For licenses that can not currently be issued in the territory of Saint-Martin (driving license E), the exchange remains possible in application of the provisions of Article 1 of the regulation taken by deliberation of the Executive Council No. CE9-16 -2012 as of 10 July 2012. The other regulatory provisions adopted by deliberation of the Executive Board as of 10 July 2012 remain unchanged.
2) - Allocation of Individual Training Assistance (AIF) and Exceptional Help
Individual training assistance enables young and adult job-seekers or precarious employees with a career plan to take qualifying courses in order to access the job market. Thus, the Committee on Employment, Learning, Integration and Vocational Training, met on Tuesday 25 last February, pronounced on the proposals of attribution of the Individual Assistance and the Exceptional help. For the AIF, an aid of 800 euros was granted for a commercial agent of stopover, while the sum of 944 euros was released to finance two exceptional aid to the training BAFA.
3) - Investment tax assistance plan provided for in Article 217 of the General Tax Code of the Collectivité de Saint-Martin. Opinion of the Executive Council on an investment project envisaged by a Martinican company.
Companies subject to the corporate tax of the Collectivité de Saint-Martin may deduct from their taxable profit the amount of productive investments they make in Saint-Martin in priority economic sectors, notably the transport sector as well as the amount of subscriptions to the capital of certain companies. As a result, the tax deduction scheme for investment is very advantageous since the company that made the investment does not actually become taxable on its profits until the cumulative amount of these investments exceeds the amount of the investment. realized.
A company, whose head office is located in Martinique, a subsidiary of a reference group in the West Indies present in Guadeloupe, Martinique and St Martin, is active in land transportation of goods and containers in St Martin. This company plans to set up a secondary establishment in St Martin to mainly transport the goods marketed by another group company. It would do for this the acquisition of a new vehicle 4.2 tons of an amount of 30 990 euros and asks the Community to be able to benefit from the tax exemption regime in force on our territory. If the tax system of the Collectivité is exclusively reserved for the companies whose head office is domiciled in St Martin, the Collectivité since it acquired the competence of source, imposes on the tax on the companies all the companies in the conditions of right common to a result achieved in St Martin, even if the headquarters is located outside the territory. As a result, the exclusion of non-resident companies from the scope of the tax exemption scheme provided for in Article 2017-A of the COM Tax Code is no longer justified. The law will soon be groomed.
The Executive Council has therefore given a favorable opinion to this request for tax exemption, adding an obligation for the company to buy the vehicle on the French side of Saint-Martin.
