Sorry it took so long to grade this. I had problems with the system. My text was sent out the same day so the answer was already "decided" before got all your replies. I had tried "holiday" and "tax break" before asking the question and didn't like them. I finally decided on "temporary tax exemption" as the bet alternative and when I came to award the KudoZ and found M Lalevee's answer decided it was only fair to give points for the answer which was a actual term I had used.

Thanks to all for the effort and thanks to Tony for helping me solve the ystem glitch.

Eligible companies may be entitled to corporation tax exemption


Explanation:
Corporate tax (CT) is the tax on companies' profits for GB audience as a translation for "impot sur le revenu" here as not individuals.

I woudl come right out with it and say that it is exemption. "Tax break" is perfect but may not suit your context adn the 'real' term may be better. But then only you hold that precious piece of info!

Bonne nuit,
