Construction workers and professionals in the building sector hold signs reading ''No to the VAT at 10%' and '' professionals in the building sector, too much pressure, we suffocate'' during a demonstration called by the CAPEB, a French union for small-sized craft enterprises, to denounce the increase of the rate of the value added tax (VAT) from seven to ten percent, on January 18, 2013 in Toulouse. Under plans designed to boost the country's competitiveness, the Socialist administration announced 20 billion euros of tax breaks for businesses that will be partly financed by increases in VAT from January 1, 2014.
