This Taxnews informs you of the new services offered to Clients. As you know, the funds of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP) and the Next Generation EU are a historic opportunity for the social and economic growth of our Country as well as for the development and modernization of Italian business activities, which are therefore invited to actively participate in investments in digitization, innovation and ecological transition, in order to seize this unique opportunity for development.
Since this is a highly specilized sector that requires specific expertise, in order to meet the needs of its Clients, FiderConsult has started a collaboration with AYMING, a multinational company with a wide experience in subsidized finance, enhancement of real estate assets and facilitation for access to grants and contributions. The objective is to bring to the attention of Clients the concrete opportunities to the benefit of companies, thanks to the new funds available in the NRRP, and assist them in the best way to take advantage of all facilities and allow the growth of companies.
It is recalled that the NRRP missions are the following: a) digitization, innovation, competitiveness and culture, b) green revolution and ecological transition, c) infrastructure for sustainable mobility, d) education and research, e) inclusion and cohesion, f) health.
Some of the current facilitation measures are outlined below.
