Italy renews its incentives for industry 4.0 investments

Italy wants to digitalize its strong SME sector to a greater extent and supports investments in smart factories, or what we understand as Industry 4.0. In reality, the majority of SMEs across all sectors have either postponed these investments or started the transition to smarter production processes with a significant delay. Since 2016, the government’s Master Plan for Growth has provided tax incentives to encourage innovative investment and build skills related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The plan is currently valid until the end of 2025 and offers Swisstech exporters or Swiss companies with a secondary headquarters interesting opportunities in Italy, where technology from Switzerland is used or where the most innovative solutions are in demand. Your potential customers may not be aware of the incentive programs. In this case, our short guide will be a useful tool for your sales pitches.
