Total Gabon

On February 14, 2014, Total Gabon received a tax re-assessment notice from the Ministère de l’Économie et de la Prospective of the Gabonese Republic accompanied by a partial tax collection notice, following the tax audit of Total Gabon in relation to the years 2008 to 2010. The partial tax collection procedure was suspended on March 5, 2014 further to the action that Total Gabon engaged before the Tax Administration.

Discussions with the Gabonese authorities led to the termination in early November 2014 of the tax assessment procedure to which Total Gabon was subject. Net income for Total Gabon as of September 30, 2014 includes the impact of the closing of this procedure, following which Total Gabon obtained a tax clearance for the relevant period, extended to and including the years 2011 to 2013.
