President Nicolas Sarkozy is to follow Britain and impose a one-off supertax on bonus pay-outs by banks operating in France. The French government intends to include the tax in the budget bill currently going through parliament. It will be levied on bonus pay-outs over â¬27,000 and will be paid by the banks, bringing Paris in line with London. France and Britain want a similar one-off tax to be adopted across the EU. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/05b1bb70-e570-11de-81b4-00144feab49a.html Vive la revolution !
