From next May 27 there will be news for the facilitated works of the construction sector. The amendment of the decree (dl 21/2022) was approved a few days ago and introduced more restrictive measures in the section of bonuses dedicated to construction.
Obligations for businesses
A choice that will have a great impact on the economic and organizational balance of companies that want to benefit from building bonuses. A first brake has been put on all those companies that will participate in construction work for an amount exceeding € 70,000.00.
In order to better protect workers, the obligation to apply collective, national and territorial agreements stipulated by sector associations has been imposed. We specify that the total amount refers only to construction work, so even if the works were to be divided between several companies but the amount should exceed 70,000.00, the companies affected by the bonus would still have to provide for the application of the collective agreement. There will also be an obligation to include in the deed of assignment works and in the invoices relating to the same
