Door in Nieuws met 0 Comments

Update from our company in Italy – Realmente in Italia and Additaly in Firenze

1.1   House Renovation tax breaks

Italy introduced new schemes to boost the renovation of properties, these schemes grant a tax break on qualifying expenses. Qualifying expenses grant a tax credit to be claimed against your taxes in 5 or 10 equal annual instalments; however, if you don’t’ pay tax to Italy those tax credits were wasted. D.L. 34/2019 introduced the 110% Superbonus and two innovative tools to

  • Contractor Invoice discount;
  • Third party sale.

In the first scenario, your contractor gives you a discount equaling the tax credit right in the invoice payable, leaving you to pay the difference.

The second scenario requires you to pay the invoice, and then trade it to a third party (most notably bank and financial institutions or the post).

Tax credits apply to non-residents and non-citizens as well.
