Milan, January 31, 2022 - Tomorrow kicks off the Eco-Sisma Bonus Tour, Intesa Sanpaolo’s programme in collaboration with Deloitte, dedicated to supporting SMEs in understanding and fully capitalising on the opportunities arising from the new features introduced by the Budget Law 2022 in the field of building bonuses related to the Home System.

Eco-Sisma Bonus Tour provides 12 free webinars dedicated to small and medium-sized business customers of the regional offices of Banca dei Territori (domestic commercial banking), headed up by Stefano Barrese, which aims to facilitate the assignment of tax credits related to the home system. The objectives of the meetings include: allowing companies to identify the advantages of the benefits provided by the new legislation with regard to energy efficiency and redevelopment of buildings and providing updates on new deadlines and percentages of deductions.

During the meetings, there will be in-depth discussions of new features introduced by the new budget law on construction, a sector for which provision was made this year a package of approximately €37 billion, extending deadlines and benefits of the Superbonus 110% and extending other concessions until 2024, including the facades bonus to 60%.

The Intesa Sanpaolo Group, even before the launch of the implementing regulations of the Relaunch Decree in August 2020, was a pioneer in providing its customers with a platform for information, advice and management of requests for all types of building tax credits to support individuals, condominium owners and businesses. Thanks to the technical consultancy of a qualified partner such as Deloitte, Intesa Sanpaolo has developed this platform to operate in full transparency and fairness in the field of documentary checks, to protect its customers and the management of practices related to building bonuses, already acquiring more than €2 billion of credits in total, of which roughly €1.2 billion from companies that have applied the so-called "invoice discount". The total amount of applications being processed on the platform exceeds €9 billion.

The construction sector plays a central role in the Italian economy with over 1.5 million employees in 2020 and develops an added value of over €66 billion. This sector can inject a significant boost to the rest of the economy, activating a supply chain that involves several sectors, including mining, construction products and materials, electrical engineering, household appliances, chemistry and many specialised sectors in intermediate goods. In 2020, the value of investments in construction touched €135 billion, 45% of the total, with housing exceeding €67 billion. Of this, €42.5 billion is for renovations, the segment most concerned by the Superbonus. 

As a result, the incentive legislation resulted in a rapid recovery of the construction cycle: after the temporary closure of construction sites during the spring 2020 lockdown, activities rebounded from the second half of 2020, which continued well into 2021. In the macroeconomic scenario of Intesa Sanpaolo's Studies and Research Department, at the end of 2021 investments in construction are expected to jump by 20.8% based on constant prices and to continue along a growth path also in the two-year period 2022-23 (+4.5% on average per year), although experiencing a natural slowdown.

Increased figures for the construction sector also for Deloitte that predicts, for the two-year period 2021-2022, an increase of 24% in investments, projecting a recovery of the 2011 levels in the year 2024. Indeed, capital accumulation, which had already exceeded average levels in 2019 in the first quarter of 2021, is expected to increase further, benefiting above all from the major expansion of the construction component, improved growth prospects, favourable financing conditions and the resources to support public and private investment provided for in the PNRR (National Recovery and Resilience Plan) and the budget plan. Over the three-year period 2022-24, investment is therefore expected to grow by +5% per year, with the construction investment component as a percentage of GDP reaching over 9% in 2024[1].

The first of the 12 stages of Eco-Sisma Bonus Tour is scheduled tomorrow and will involve SMEs in the area between Bergamo, Como, Lecco, Sondrio and Varese, with the participation, on behalf of Intesa Sanpaolo, of Alfonso Tentori, Sales Manager for SMEs of the North Lombardy Department, and a speech by Antonio Piciocchi, Senior Partner of Deloitte Tax and leader of Eco-Sisma Bonus services of Deloitte in Italy, dedicated to the market context and the new features introduced by the Budget Law on the matter.

"The measures introduced with home system incentives and the possibility of assigning tax credits have injected significant impetus to the recovery of the sector to which Intesa Sanpaolo offers all the training and operational tools to access them",comments Anna Roscio Executive Director of Sales&Marketing SMEs of Banca dei Territori of Intesa Sanpaolo. "As demonstrated by the platform created by Intesa Sanpaolo and Deloitte, it remains essential to adopt verification mechanisms that, in addition to supporting customers in the recognition of credit, ensure full compliance with the rules and the correct use of public incentives intended for the green transition that lies ahead of us and the implementation of the PNRR."

This initiative to support companies in the Home System helps implement one of the pillars of "Motore Italia", the strategic programme presented in 2021 by Intesa Sanpaolo to support SMEs with new credit and liquidity for investments. From now until 2026, the Intesa Sanpaolo Group plans medium-long term disbursements of more than €410 billion, of which €120 billion intended for SMEs, with which to actively contribute to the economic recovery of the country in close correlation with the objectives of the PNRR.
