Bookshops tax credit: signed the implementing decree

The Italian Budget Law for 2018 (Law no. 205/2017) introduced a special tax credit for companies engaged in the retail sale of new and second-hand books.

On 24/04/2018 the Ministry of Art and Culture, together with the Ministry of Finance, issued a special Decree which defines the applicative provisions for the tax credit.

For every beneficiary the maximum amount of tax credit available will be:

  • € 20.000 for bookshop operators that are not included in publishing groups directly managed by them;
  • € 10.000 for other operators.
