Up to 2,5 million Euros
Almost every company in Italy knows that to invest is to save money in the near future. It may sound weird to a foreign manager and it can be quite tricky to get credits on the taxes a company has to pay, but it is absolutely possible an convenient.
The easiest way is to invest in Industry 4.0 products. In particular, tax credits are extended until the 31st December 2025, as confirmed by MiSE, the Italian Ministry for Economic Development.
The same is reported in the Budget Law (included in the so called Decreto Aiuti DL50/2022): the new tax credits will be effective from the 1st of Jenuary until the 31st of December 2025. More in particular, one will be able to request access to the tax credits up until the 30th of June 2026, in presence of down payments done within the 31st of December 2025.
How much are the tax credits going to change?
Long story short, Industry 4.0 tax credits will last until the end 2025, and companies will be able to benefit from them, but they will change. The changes in the tax credist will be about the type of Industry 4.0 products purchased by the interested companies, being they physical (electric panels, machineries, machine side-board installations, etc.) or immaterial (i.e.: softwares, system integration services, apps, HMIs, SCADA, etc.). To be more specific, for hardware products, the tax credits will be calculated on how much one invests. For software products, they will change from year to year, from 2023 to 2025.
But let’s get to the interesting part: are they convenient?
