Voucher to innovate

Voucher to innovate


In the Official Journal of 1 July the decree of the Ministry of Economic Development was published containing provisions applying to the non-repayable grant for the benefit of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, for the purchase of specialist consultancy on technological and digital transformation processes.
The non-repayable incentive, the so-called vouchers, amount to 40,000 euros for micro and small businesses up to 50% of the cost; 25,000 euros for medium-sized companies within the limit of 30% of the expenditure; 80,000 euros for business networks within the limit of 50% of the costs incurred.
Altogether it is 25 million euros per year for 2019 and 2020.
Which companies can use the voucher? Certainly SMEs and micro enterprises with registered offices or a local unit active in Italy, registered in the Register of Companies of the Ccia territorially competent, regardless of their legal form and the adopted accounting and tax regime.
The facilitation concerns the costs effectively sustained and documented for the purchase of consultancy services of a specialist nature aimed at supporting the technological and digital transformation processes through the enabling technologies envisaged by the National Business Plan 4.0.
