Explanation:
The French governement temporarily raised the corporate income tax rate by 10% and then did it again. They are now talking about lowering it back down 10%. So the idea is: "the tax charge shown in the income statement corresponds to the corporate income tax for a given year, incorporating the two consecutive and temporary 10% hikes."
