Rising gas prices, deadline for declaring taxes, ban on certain vehicles in Greater Paris, are the novelties to keep in mind at the start of the month.
With the sun finally shining on the terraces which will soon be open until 11 p.m., a wind of innovation is blowing at the beginning of this month of June. Some less sympathetic are however to be noted.
Deadline for tax declaration
Last straight line to declare your income. While the paper return was due to be filed by May 20, the deadline for filing income online is also approaching. Departments numbered 1 to 19, as well as non-resident taxpayers reached it on May 26, departments 20 to 54 have until 1is June, while the departments from 55 and Overseas benefit from a few more days, but will still have to have made their declaration before June 8.
Hincreased gas prices
The regulated gas tariffs applied by Engie will increase by 4.4% from 1is June, the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) announced on Thursday. This increase is due in particular to the rise in gas prices on the world market and to lower than usual European stocks. More precisely, it is 1.2% for customers who use gas for cooking, 2.6% for those who have dual use, cooking and hot water, and 4.6% for households which are heat with gas.
End of the winter break
While it had been extended for two months since 1is April due to the health crisis, the winter break finally ends this 1is June. Rental evictions can therefore resume today. According to the Abbé Pierre Foundation, 30,000 households could be evicted from their homes. The end of the winter break also concerns power cuts in the event of unpaid bills, suspended since 1is November.
Refusal of the old employer certificate formats
Until then, Pôle Emploi still tolerated the old models of certification sent by employers. From 1is June, only the updated model will be accepted. The employer certificate is a document given to the employee at the end of his employment contract to enable him to assert his rights to unemployment benefits. This concerns in particular VSEs with less than 11 employees who can still send their certificates in paper version and must therefore request the valid format from Pôle Emploi. The dematerialized route is however favored, the employer’s certificate being available within the scope of the Nominative Social Declaration (DSN) and in the employer’s area of Pôle-emploi.
Change in the conditions of partial unemployment
Contrary to what was provided for by the decree of October 30, 2020, employees in all sectors will still be able to benefit from partial unemployment benefit up to 84% of their net remuneration until July 1, 2021. It will begin to be paid. decrease to 72% of net income from that date, but is maintained at its current rate until September for employees in protected sectors: hotels and restaurants, sport, culture, events. On the other hand, apart from these sectors for which the remainder payable by the employer remains at 0%, it goes from 15% to 25% on June 1 for companies in other sectors.
Ban on the circulation of polluting vehicles
Already in force in intramural Paris since December 1, 2020, the ban on the movement of vehicles bearing the Crit’Air 4 sticker extends to low-emission zones of Greater Paris from June 1. Diesel cars built before 2006, as well as those with gasoline engines before 1997, will therefore no longer be able to circulate on weekdays from 8 am to 8 pm in these areas. For heavy goods vehicles, buses and coaches, this ban is valid every day. A fine of 68 euros could be applied to offending private vehicles.
Exceptions are however provided for vehicles transporting disabled people, collection vehicles, emergency vehicles, or vehicles used to supply markets, for removals, cultural events or filming.
