Income tax: is an unemployed entrepreneur taxable?

Verified 04 décembre 2020 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

Yes, an unemployed person who starts a business is taxable on his income. But some aid for unemployed entrepreneurs is tax-free. This is the case for aid paid under the new support for the creation or resumption of business (Nacre).. They are not taxable.

However, aid for the takeover or creation of a business (Arce) paid to an unemployed person starting or resuming a business is taxable.
