The motorcycle Ecobonus “weighs” on the shoulders of dealers, who have to anticipate the discounts and then wait for reimbursements from the houses. So why not allow the transfer of the tax credit, as happens for the building superincentive? Confindustria ANCMA (National Association of Cycle Motorcycle Accessories) asks for it.
Late state repayments: small businesses in trouble
«It is necessary to intervene immediately to introduce the possibility of transferring the tax credit to other subjects as happens for the building Ecobonus or the financial stability of many of our companies will be at risk» dice Paolo Magri, president of Confindustria ANCMA. In a press release he then announced “initiatives at parliamentary level» per get changes in the conversion into law of the Sostegni bis Decree.
The association talks about “double edged weapon“. In fact, if on the one hand the Ecobonus has given a very positive impulse to the market of zero-impact mopeds, scooters and motorcycles (+ 84% in 2020 over the previous year), on the other”it is seriously undermining liquidity of manufacturers, importers and, sometimes, even of the same sales network when the manufacturer is not based in Italy».
ANCMA wants the transfer of tax credits
The incentive mechanism is under accusation. The rule provides that the contribution is paid by the seller through a direct discount on the purchase price of the vehicle and that the manufacturers or importers must subsequently reimburse the amount of the contribution to the dealerships. In this way, the companies in turn recover this amount as a tax credit.
«However – underlines Magri – recovery times are very extended and this is very penalizing»For small businesses or even start-ups. According to the president of ANCMA “the success of the measure and its appreciable extension until 2026, will paradoxically have a very negative effect on the economic stability of our companies, which will not be able to manage the tension produced by the impossibility of compensating the accumulated credit, will no longer be able to invest adequately in innovation and will be strongly weakened “.
