The situation is critical and for this reason it must be faced with intelligence and decision. The strong alarm signal regarding the need to extend the work in progress based on the superbonus recently entrusted to the press channels by the national ANCE and all the other associations and unions in the construction chain cannot remain unheeded by part of the Meloni Government and the Italian Parliament, under penalty of the sudden loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs, the onset of a huge dispute between condominiums and businesses and serious risks of economic and social chaos far worse than the presumed costs for the coffers of the state of a short extension of the deadline of next December 31st.

Sustainable development and regulatory uncertainty

«The question of tax incentives for energy efficiency and seismic safety of existing real estate assets cannot be treated with an ideological, let alone an accountant, approach that neglects the strategic value of bonuses in terms of sustainable development, transition and ecological innovation and securing the homes of Italians – declares the president of ANCE Reggio Calabria, Michele Laganà –. Above all, it does not appear acceptable to prevaricate in a sterile debate that fuels regulatory uncertainty and which appears not to be concerned with developing concrete alternative solutions to address the necessary ecological transition of the sector and the country”.
Without wanting to underestimate the importance of the financial stability of our country, but rather precisely because of this recognized centrality of the maintenance of public accounts, it appears necessary to carefully consider the positive effects of tax bonuses on the economy as well as the damage that can be caused by the lack of transition and structural solutions to support the necessary redevelopment of the real estate assets both in terms of energy and seismic security.

Unblocking stranded tax credits or bankrupt families and businesses

«In any case, although limiting the field to the current economic values ​​of the works in progress under the superbonus estimated at around 30 billion euros, it is necessary to reiterate the urgency of a regulatory intervention to allow a timely release of stranded tax credits and the completion of the interventions in the execution phase, the failure of which would produce very serious economic repercussions, also and above all on the State’s accounts. Furthermore, with reference to the community directives on “Green Homes” – continues the architect Laganà – which in balancing the indispensable environmental policies produce a direct impact on the real estate values ​​of the home asset, which still represents the main means of saving and investment for Italians, it must be highlighted that in the absence of effective real estate regeneration tools, hundreds of thousands of citizens would be condemned to a conspicuous, net and sudden loss in the real estate values ​​of their assets and therefore in their savings”.
