THE DOCUMENT OF THE SECRETARY GENERAL LAURO WITH THE PROPOSALS IN THE TAX FIELD WILL BE PRESENTED ON FRIDAY 4 SEPTEMBER AT THE CONFERENCE ORGANIZED BY UNIMPRESA AT SENATO
In relation to the tax reform hypotheses, Unimpresa hopes that the Anglo-Saxon tax system will be taken as an example: a simple, short and extremely linear system that leaves no room for doubt for the interpretation of the taxpayer
This is what the secretary general of Unimpresa, Raffaele Lauro, writes, in a document that will be illustrated in detail next Friday on the occasion of the conference organized by Unimpresa at the Palazzo della Minerva of the Senate of the Republic. The event will be the occasion in which a company will present a series of proposals for structural reforms (taxation, civil justice, bank credit and digitalisation of the public administration), essential for recovery:
this represents further evidence of goodwill, responsibility and resistance of SMEs to the dominant incompetence
Lauro observes according to which
on the eve of the conference, it appears useful to investigate the controversial issues of the key reform, the fiscal one, deriving from the partial advances of the government, direct and indirect
The government has announced “a structural, radical and comprehensive tax reform, with respect to the chaotic tax system in force” and seems willing to “proceed with a reform that envisages, on the one hand, a hypothetical taxation of income, self-employed workers and businesses , with the “cash” method, and, on the other hand, to want to recreate five unique texts between direct and indirect taxes. A positive fact appears to be the official acknowledgment that the Italian tax system is composed of a multiform tangle of rules, comparable to a ball of silk, of which neither the beginning nor the end can be found.
It is therefore equally undeniable that even the most experienced connoisseur of the Italian tax system does not really know all the tax legislation in its entirety. The number of tax laws and their cumbersome nature, in fact, make it impossible to acquire certainty about the rules that an entrepreneur of any size must face regarding the investments to be made on the national or international territory ”explains the general secretary of a company.
This is why “the investment planning is never clear, let alone secure in content, because our mysterious and unknown fiscal jungle, in addition to being confused and incomprehensible, is modified over the course of the year, over and over again. The taxman, therefore, a mysterious object and weak link in entrepreneurial forecasts! Another joke, because entrepreneurs, in planning their expansion plans and evaluating the dynamics of costs and revenues, cannot count on complete and reliable data. Furthermore, the proposal to launch five codes that include direct and indirect taxes is interesting. The advantage would undoubtedly be a complete review and simplification of the rules as a whole ”reads the document that will be illustrated on Friday.
According to Lauro:
the great reform will require the help not only of recognized tax experts, but also professionals who live and face the uncertainties of these rules on behalf of their desperate customers on a daily basis. The challenge, therefore, is certainly that of the timing required to review tax rules, as a whole, and make them, at a macroeconomic level, suitable for providing the necessary revenues for annual spending, in compliance with the European budgetary pact. The path traced is undoubtedly the right one, but urgent government intervention is now needed to define, in a clear and precise way, the principles, contents and timing of this key reform. A non-secondary aspect of the framework to be reformed concerns the timing and methods of tax collection: the transition from a method that provides for the annual calculation of income taxes to a “cash” method on a monthly or quarterly basis
Unimpresa, in the upcoming conference, will be committed to providing the government, parliament, political forces and public opinion, with humility, with respectful attention and with due determination, further and more in-depth reflections on the issues of reforms to be approved with urgency, starting from the fiscal one, without further delay, postponements, downward mediation and hesitation, if you really intend to give a signal of positive reaction, even psychological, to the business world and, in particular, to that of micro, small and medium companies, which are experiencing the most difficult moment of their glorious history and will face an autumn full of unknowns, also due to the obvious lack of direction and political management of our country.
These are not academic reflections, perhaps matured in the enclosure of private lounges, but suggestions and proposals that a company, like other representative associations, collects from the base, from the daily life of businesses and from the daily travails of entrepreneurs, that is, from the “living flesh” of the national economic-productive fabric. Will this cry of pain, purposeful and not an end in itself, be picked up?
During the debate, on Friday, the vice-presidents of Unimpresa, Salvo Politino and Giuseppe Spadafora, the national councilors of Unimpresa, Marco Salustri and Giacomo will discuss the main economic-political issues – from taxation to credit, from civil justice to public administration. Sword.
