NeroSuBianco’s relationship with this company arises from an initial need on the part of the customer for technical assistance on the framing of the measures contained in the Business Plan.
Initially, the focus was on the Tax Credit for Research and Development, an activity which, despite being carried out as an institutional activity by the company, the methods of emergence of the object and phases of said activity were not clear to the managers.
Thanks to our intervention, the company was able to obtain a tax benefit of over 200 thousand euros, giving impetus to further investments in activities related to industry 4.0.
