The government extends the discounts on utility bills until September. There is a new contribution paid by companies that import gas

The council of ministers has decided to extend the measures to contain the prices of the electricity and gas bills and guarantees for the companies that carry out gas storage. The VAT applied to the bills therefore remains al 5% while further reductions are foreseen for the weakest segments of the population. They are allocated over 2 billion to eliminate system costs on electricity bills. For gas bills, they are provided 481 million to cut VAT, 470 to eliminate system charges and 240 for brackets up to 5,000 cubic meters per year. The expense should be offset by the new contribution that the subjects holding contracts for the supply of volumes of natural gas destined for the Italian market must be forced to pay to the Cash for energy and environmental services (Csea) for each month of the period between 1 July 2022 and 31 March 2023. The percentage is not defined in the draft text.

“Today we extended for the next quarter the measures in support of businesses and families” against the high bills “a further confirmation of the government’s commitment. Soon there will be another measure to contain fuel prices, to keep prices down. There will be a separate provision by the competent ministries, ”said the minister of the family Elena Bonetti leaving Palazzo Chigi.

“In a context of great uncertainty, economic policy aims to prevent the economic recovery from losing too much momentum. We absolutely must avoid a new recession“, Reiterated the Minister of Economy, Daniele Franco, in his speech on the anniversary of the founding of the Guardia di Finanza. Franco recalled that “2022 should have been the year in which to resume decisively on the path of growth”, instead “from the management of a gradual exit from the supports, we quickly moved on to new support interventions to mitigate the impact of the costs of ‘energy and reflections of war events ”with measures for approx 20 billion between 2021 and 2022 “To which are added the further interventions ordered today by the Council of Ministers”.
