Measures for self-entrepreneurship
The 'Nuove imprese a tasso zero' measure aims to support, throughout the country, the creation and development of micro and small enterprises with majority or wholly youth (aged between 18 and 35) or female participation.
The investment programmes proposed by businesses established for no more than 36 months may provide for eligible expenditure not exceeding Euro 1,500,000; the above ceiling may also include an amount to cover working capital requirements (to be justified in the business plan and usable for the payment of raw materials, services needed to carry out the business' activities, and the use of third-party assets), up to a limit of 20% of the investment expenditure.
For businesses established for more than 36 months and not more than 60 months, the amount of eligible expenditure may not exceed €3,000,000.
Facilitation applications must be completed exclusively electronically, using the computerised procedure that will be made available at www.invitalia.it.
