In order to support businesses and professionals affected by the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, Law Decree no. 34 of 19 May 2020 (art. 28) introduced a rental bonus in the form of a tax credit amounting to 60% of the monthly rent, lease or concession of real estate for non-residential use.
The tax credit is granted to subjects exercising business activities, arts or professions, which have a turnover below €5 million and which have suffered in the months of March, April and May 2020 a decrease in turnover or fees of at least 50% compared to the same month in the previous tax period.
Hotels and agritourism facilities can take advantage of the tax credit regardless of the volume of revenues and fees recorded in the previous tax period. The tax credit is also due to non-commercial entities, including third sector entities and civilly recognised religious entities, in relation to properties for non-residential use intended for the performance of institutional activities.
