‘Click & Collect’ Retailers To Be Targeted In France

French president François Hollande is reportedly planning to target ‘Click & Collect’ retailers in order to turn around the country’s current tax deficit.

‘Click & Collect’, led by the likes of Auchan Drive and Carrefour Drive, are a retail phenomenon in France, but as they are largely comprised of warehouses and are closed to the public, they thus do not have to go through the process of obtaining a licence or pay the Tascom, a tax paid by retailers operating commercial surface areas of over 400 square metres. Hollande’s government is reportedly looking to close this loophole.

Vincent Mignot, Auchan’s general manager for France, said,“We think the plan being drafted is extremely worrying, as it would threaten a very promising business.”
