Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
French term or phrase: postcompté/précompté
If précompté is deducted at source (after tax) is postcompté before tax, meaning tax is calculated afterwards? Seems counter-intuitive.

Reference information:
Based on IATE, yes, it would seem to be gross, at the base rate.

Précompté refs on IATE are 80% tax-deducted referenced.
