Tax relief and paternity leave: two knots to dissolve
The government is struggling with reforms. Important and unresolved issues (for now) among the many related to the work are paternity leave and facilitation in the field of VAT.
As regards the latter, the proposal provides for a 15% tax on those who invoice up to 65000 euros; From 65000 euros to 100,000 euros the rate will be set at 20%. The difference is in the VAT: In the first case you do not pay in the second instead. This second hypothesis has more connotates than a VAT replacement fee.
The main criticality is the tax deductions. Regarding medical expenses, for example, the restructuring of house and the managing of a dependants being part of the forfeit could be a disadvantage for entrepreneurs who incur costs that are deductible in excess of the benefits arising From the entrance into loses.
“In proportion, it is clear that companies with high incomes will have greater benefits, and this would lead to major differences within individual scions,” said Carpenters of the NAC.
Another unresolved node, paternity leave: The 2017 budgetary law had extended for the current year the compulsory paternity of 2 to 4 days, symbolic as incisiveness but of enormous cultural value: an important result achieved.
Being an experimental measure, however, is destined to end by the end of the year if the current government does not decide to confirm it.
The lack of support for the family, combined with a mentality that binds women strongly to the care of children, gives life to a secular and negative cultural stereotype, that paternity leave goes to depotentiate: it fights irresponsibility with a new Vision strategy of the family and gives fathers the possibility of greater emotional involvement with their children.
The June European Council launched the confirmation of the measure, but it leaves the individual states with total arbitrariness in the application, from the determination of the days to that of the indemnification.
Now it is up to the Italian Government to follow a great welfare reform and a real help to develop a new culture of work and family.
