|French term or phrase: complexe factuel|
|Hi guys! |
Hope you're all having a great Monday. Mine was zipping right along until I encountered this expression. Still on the same "Arrêt suisse".
"II convient de rappeler que c'est la demande d'assistance qui doit émaner d'une enquête fiscale nationale et non l'inverse. II est vrai qu'on ne peut exclure qu'un ****complexe factuel ****survenu en partie antérieurement à l'application de l'art. 26 COI-IN déploie ses effets dans le temps.
A few paragraphs further, I also encountered the term "complèxe de faits", which, from context, I supposed to mean the same thing.
"Ainsi, sauf à vider de son sens le principe de spécialité en relation avec la période fiscale pour laquelle
l'assistance est octroyée (2011 à 2012; consid. 3.1 ci-dessus), les informations que I'AFC envisage de transmettre ne peuvent pas se rattacher à un *****complexe de faits***** antérieur à 2011."
So, based on my undertanding of the concept of a "complèxe" de contrats (as opposed to a "contrat complèxe"), I am tentatively considering translating it as "chaine of events" but would like to have some confirmation and/or other views.
Many thanks in advance !
