France will tax digital giants from 2019 even if no EU-wide agreement: FinMin

PARIS, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire on Thursday said France will tax digital giants at a national level from 2019 if European Union states cannot reach an agreement on a tax on digital revenues for the bloc.

EU finance ministers failed to agree a tax on digital revenues on Tuesday, despite a last minute Franco-German plan to salvage the proposal by narrowing its focus to companies like Google and Facebook. (Reporting by Richard Lough; Editing by Sudip Kar-Gupta)
