Indeed.

Now the romand Kantons (CH) are hostage of french willingness to fulfill the treaty.

sorry Wolli. but why what? Could you be a bit clearer please.

This area specialises in 2 things, precision enginnering and machinery, and high quality watches. Exporting the first is currently very hard because of the high CHF and much cheaper costs and labour elsewhere. And the market for the latter is narrowing due to the financial crisis in coutries like China, who had become excellent customers for high end watches.


WHY is France not paying ?

Re: French frontaliers debt grows

It's not the first time the French administration is late with payments. Last year, they were on time. Was it 2012 or 2013 they transferred the money just before christmas? I remember a funny RTS news report in the TV news for it.
The system works relatively well, but it is a stupid system in the first place: getting this 4,3% taxed at source and deduct it from French tax afterwards would work better. It is how Germany and Switzerland solved the tax issue. It works very well and nobody is ever waiting for money. The French don't understand the concept of being taxed at source... but they are talking about it in the socialist party, so who knows if Switzerland gets a chance to review the procedure. I really wish they would.

And with Italy and Austria as well.

as of today, the frontaliers Cantons that, unlike Geneva, to not charge tax on the frontaliers, but where the French GVT pays a small proportion back to the Canton where the frontaliers work (4.5 % of gross salary)- are still due 300 million that was payable by the end of June. This puts Communes, like mine, which do rely partly on this money to balance their budget, in a very difficult situation- as they now have to get loans and pay interest on them. Not helping with tensions here, as firms are teetering on having to make people redundant due to the high CHF and falling markets.
Taxes will have to go up & property prices will fall, kind of double whammy, however you seem to like it there.
And seems to like paying vast amounts of money to the government in taxes...

Call it those with french frontalies if you want. The essence remains the same.
