Promoting taxation that is favourable to wealth creation and employment in France
AFEP promotes taxation that is favourable to business competitiveness and the attractiveness of France, its objective being to maintain and develop in France the value-creating activities of the future.
Driving forward but also technically analysing the measures proposed by the public authorities, AFEP relies on the practical experience and expertise of all its members to define and defend the solutions that reflect the consensus of large companies, in line with France’s budgetary constraints.
Given that French large companies have an international scope, AFEP deals with matters of domestic and also European, international and foreign taxation, to boost the economic weighting of the nation.
