Energy Efficiency Tax Reductions

Post by Geotherm on Fri May 24, 2013 11:59 am

Have extracted this from the Tax post, as could be relevant to residents changing a existing heating system to a Biomass, pellet boiler or heatpump.
The original scheme of 55% was excellent if you were resident, and upgrading a existing system in a house that had agilibilita, as you could claim this back for the new system, plus the cost of double glazing, roof insulation and even plumbing costs for the retrofit. As I understand these will still be included with the new system. New builds or non habitable houses were not included, but had a effective lower IVA rate.
The tax allowance was over a 5-10 year return period. All invoices have to be submitted by the services provider.

Irpef allowances for energy efficiency improvements to buildings


It is established an allowance for taxpayers who pay to improve the energy efficiency of existing buildings.

The allowances are essentially the following:



  • an allowance from the gross tax of 55% of costs, effectively
    incurred by the taxpayer, sustained for energy efficiency improvements
    to existing buildings, which reduce the yearly primary energy
    consumption for winter heating by at least 20% of the values recorded on
    a special chart.


From 1 July 2013 these allowance will be replaced with the income tax
deduction of 36%, already provided for the costs of building
refurbishment.


The allowances are awarded under the condition that the intervention
conforms to the standards prescribed and is certified by a qualified
technician, who is held responsible by law.

Furthermore, the payment must be done through bank or postal
transfer. In order to claim the allowance, taxpayers must also acquire
the building’s energy certificate, if this has been introduced by the
region or local authority, or, otherwise, an “energy efficiency
certificate” prepared by a certified professional.

The 65% tax break is really a great scheme if you plan to do your tax returns in Italy. In fact you can also add on the 50% tax break for all other non-energy saving works such as structural, plastering, flooring etc. The expenditure cap for the previous scheme until the 30 June 2013 was as follows:

- 100,000euro of a tax break (detrazione) or 55% of 181,818euro of works
- This is spread over a 10 year period (ie 10,000euro per year tax break)
- The energy performance of the building needs to be 20% better than the minimum required by law
- A web communication to the Agenzia delle Entrate is done within 3 months of completing works
- All payments need to be totally retraceable (bankers’ draft or money transfer)

The expenditure limit for the 50% break is 192,000euro or 96,000euro. This means that for large scale refurbishments you can get 214,000euro back over the following 10 years. Not bad!
