Nuovo bonus alle imprese fino a 10mila euro: come funziona

New bonus for businesses up to 10 thousand euros: how it works

In this very complicated phase for the world of Italian and European companies, with the price of gas skyrocketing and the energy crisis that anticipates a “blood and tears” winter season, there is good news for SMEs. In addition to the new aid for the so-called Green New Deal (here what it is, how much it is due and how to request incentives), the Draghi government has in fact approved new aid for companies up to 10 thousand euros. Let’s see in detail what it is and how it can be achieved.

This is the so-called Fairs Bonus, a voucher with a maximum value of 10 thousand euros in favor of companies for participation in international trade fairs in the sector, organized in Italy. The total budget foreseen for the intervention is 34 million euros for 2022.

Here you will find all the new bonuses and help that companies can request against expensive energy.

What is the Fair Bonus

The measure provides for a non-repayable grant, up to a maximum of 10 thousand euros, equal to 50% of the expenses incurred for renting and setting up spaces, services for promotional activities and more.

The fairs for which the voucher can be used are those identified in trade fair calendar approved by the Conference of Regions and Autonomous Provinces (you can find it updated here) and taking place until 31 December 2022 (and starting from July 16, 2022, date of entry into force of the law converting the decree law).

Therefore, the Fair Bonus is aimed at all companies with operational headquarters in the national territory that participate in the international trade fairs of the sector organized in Italy, in the period between July 16, 2022 and December 31, 2022.

The contribution, which may concern participation in one or more fairs, can be requested only once by each beneficiary.

  • have not received any other public grants for the same purposes referred to in this intervention.
