Account Saving Pressure: The government is also offering advance communications for Tax Credits for Transformation 4.0 plan

Account Saving Pressure: The government is also offering advance communications for Tax Credits for Transformation 4.0 plan

As part of the so-called “savings account” decree approved by the Council of Ministers on March 26, the government is implementing a comprehensive crackdown on tax breaks in order to keep spending under control.

If the main objective of the measures is clearly super-reward, whereby all remaining cases of credit transfer are eliminated with a discount on the invoice, other tax breaks also ending under the government pivot, including those provided by the Transformation 4.0 plan, remain in effect. Until 2025, it is R&D, Innovation and ACE activities, for which only the credit can still be transferred.

Introducing Advance Communications for Transition 4.0

In particular, the rule established by the government in the Decree-Law which includes “urgent measures in relation to tax exemptions” stipulates, as explained by Palazzo Chigi, “the introduction of measures aimed at obtaining more information related to the implementation of eligible interventions” aimed at To “ensure adequate and timely knowledge of the economic and financial quantities associated with the facilitation measures covered by the decree.”

Let's try to read between the lines in the government text. Currently, access to the tax credit provided for in the Transformation Plan 4.0 is fully automatic: once the requirements set by law are met, the tax credit is reimbursed in F24 (in three annual installments). The company is responsible for only one annual “after” connection, the lack of which is not yet subject to penalties.

The new rule instead imposes a new burden on companies aspiring to benefit from the incentive: those intending to benefit from the credit must report the relevant amounts in advance, on pain of confiscation. It will also have to do so for investments already underway.

In detail, companies must declare in advance electronically “the total amount of investments, the assumed distribution of the loan over the years and the related use that they intend to make as of the date of entry into force of this legislative decree.”
