The National Assembly began to examine yesterday Thursday the amending finance bill (PLFR) in which it is notably proposed to allow all employees to give up their RTT in return for remuneration.
Time against money. The government plans to monetize the RTT days not taken. An amendment was devoted to it yesterday Thursday in the draft amending budget to extend their purchase to tax and social exemption measures.
The Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire assured that the proposals, emanating from the ranks of the Republicans, “on overtime and on the possible redemption of RTT” were “welcome”.
The measure also proposes tax exemption for social contributions and income tax on RTTs that the employee has decided to get paid rather than asking them.
No limit on the number of RTTs?
The amendment is carried by the Renaissance group, reported Les Echos. This system had already been put in place under the presidency of Nicolas Sarkozy, in 2007. The measure concerns RTT not taken and acquired between 1er January 2022 and December 31, 2023.
To finance this project, the question arises of a new tax on tobacco. Moreover, while under Nicolas Sarkozy, the project was limited to a payment over ten days of RTT maximum, Les Républicains, on the initiative of the text, wish that no restriction be applied this time on the number of RTT paid.
