It is one of the pillars that allows access to European funds. It is one of the key objectives of the Energy Transition, which guides the Government's future plans. The sector is in danger despite the fact these investments were approved months before, in October 2021.
In this context, Andimac, the National Association of Distributors of Ceramics and Construction Materials, has asked for an extension of the income tax assistance beyond December 31, in order to encourage this kind of work. This request comes amid the ongoing struggle of the Government with a new package of measures that will limit the impact of rising energy costs on Spanish households.
Employer regrets that tax deductions for rehabilitation work have been discontinued this year. However, these aid programs of Recovery Plan with 5,520 million euro are still not being launched. He warns that European funds won't be able to promote this type of work at least not this year.
From Andimac believes that the expiry dates for tax deductions should at minimum coincide with the closing of operations for energy rehabilitation works. In practice, the sale phase for rehabilitation projects is December 2023. However, their execution can be extended up to 2026.
They propose that the deadlines for closing energy rehabilitation operations be extended to December 2024. They currently expire in December 2023. In practice, seven communities have issued their calls. Many others have not.
The tax deduction that was approved in October 2021, financed by European funds, to cover the costs and accelerate decision-making for execution of the works, will expire when the plans at local level are implemented.
Andimac asks that the deadlines to apply the deduction be set parallel to those for marketing the projects. This would resolve the contradiction.
