Start ups and small businesses face tough future
The first involves the creation of a 60% capital gains tax on successful entrepreneurs who sell their business, despite many having spent years to build it up and offer employment to others.
The fear is that such a punitive tax rate will kill any appeal of investing in small start-up businesses if people face handing over such a large of proportion of their success.
A second tax change looks set to hit the auto-entrepreneur status for small businesses, the system I am currently registered under.
It involves the end of the fixed rate of taxation and a move to the estimated rates that exist in the alternative regimes aimed at businesses.
The problem with this set up was that in the earliest years of a start up business they faced expensive social charges, that cut deep into any income earned and was one of the main issues that the auto-entrepreneur system hoped to deal with.
The man behind the auto-entrepreneur regulations which came into effect in 2009, Hervé Novelli, says the changes are an attack on poorer workers.
And this would seem to be backed up by the figures, with a recent report showing that nine out of ten auto-entrepreneurs earn less than the minimum wage.
All this comes as protests took place in Paris on Sunday against the EU fiscal pact, unemployment in France now stands at over three million and the country's industrial sector had a bleak September, shrinking at its fastest pace in three and a half years.
