Industry 4.0 means production processes carried out by interconnected machinescapable of dialogue, collaboration and preventive maintenance. This type of industry is able to develop more efficient and faster processes compared to a 'classic' type.
The first Industry 4.0 plan was launched within the 2017 budget law with the aim of mobilising private investment additional EUR 10 billion and EUR 11.3 billion of private spending on research, development and innovation with a focus on Industry 4.0 technologies.
The Budget Law of 2020 makes it possible to extend investments for companies investing in innovative 4.0 equipment. The purchase of new machinery instead of taking advantage of the super depreciation of previous years is now facilitated by a tax credit. It will be applied on investments made in 2020, or by 30 June 2021 provided the order is accepted by 31 December 2020, with payment of at least 20%.
