The French government has just launched a new platform to simplify the declaration and payment procedures for professionals. The objective is to simplify and unify all the declarations and payments, by gathering in a single space the services offered by the tax authorities, the Urssaf and the Customs.
Developed by the Urssaf, the DGDDI and the DGFiP, the portal centralizes all social, tax and customs procedures in a single application. For the moment, the services offered by the portal are mainly aimed at very small businesses and SMEs, but it will soon be open to other audiences, such as certified accountants, registered customs representatives and large companies.
CERL and its customs teams take stock of the most important new features for your business.
PortailPro is completed by two other sites: formalites.entreprises.gouv.fr, which simplifies and centralizes business procedures, and the entreprendre.service-public.fr portal, which is designed to inform and guide businesses.
Pay your tax, customs and social security taxes online
As part of the plan to simplify the digital environment for businesses, which has been underway for several years now, the government portal portalpro.gouv.fr was launched on March 8, 2022. The portal is open to professionals regardless of the size or status of their company. Companies can access all the services or authorize their employees. In its first version, the application offers services adapted to the needs of self-employed employers, SME managers and business creators.
In a press release, the Government specifies the four new services dedicated to companies:
A unique and secure connection giving access without re-authentication to impots.gouv.fr, urssaf.fr and douane.gouv.fr services
A dashboard to follow your social, customs and tax situation and your next deadlines
File your tax returns and pay your taxes and contributions from a single site
An integrated and secure messaging system to exchange with the Urssaf, the tax authorities and the customs
PortailPro : Focus on customs and transport functionalities
PortailPro is not intended to replace douane.gouv.fr Anyone can create an account on PortailPro, you do not need to justify any particular authorization but it is possible at the time of the creation of the account to attach your douane.gouv.fr account (company correspondent).
The access logic to the Customs teleservices (Delta-G, Ciel, Domino…) remains the same as on douane.gouv.fr and requires the creation of the relationship with ROSA beforehand. There are no procedures for enabling customs teleservices directly from PortailPro. Therefore, an approval/agreement is still required to access the customs teleservices.
The portal dashboard displays the following information:
- A summary of the status of his receivables (Paid/to be paid)
- A schedule for the DGFiP and URSSAF
- A link to the social and tax declarations
- An access to the secured messaging system
- A view of the registered mandates
The information may differ according to the co-owners’ authorizations.
Concerning the DGDDI part, the display is as follows:
- A “Summary of payments to date” block: populated with information on DGDDI receivables if the user is entitled to telepayment.
- A “current” tab of the declarations dashboard
- The “current” and “historical” tabs of the payment dashboard
- Consulting mandates
Initially, only DTI (EFI) declarations can be created via PortailPro. Declarations can be created on DELTA G (customs clearance)/CIEL (indirect taxes)/ISOPE (energy products) and DOMINO (internal dock dues).
Regarding the payment of customs duties, it is possible to pay all telepayable customs duties (customs clearance with collection credit, CI, energy products, internal dock dues). It is also possible to pay a claim by credit card.
When declarations are made by EDI or DTI, payments can also be made via PortailPro.
