Invoice discount for windows and doors: how it works
The discount on the invoice on fixtures is a tax measure introduced in 2019 with the Growth Decree, and represents an opportunity for immediate savings for all those who are interested in intervening on their home, for example with works to improve energy performance. The discount on the invoice, provides the opportunity to obtain the immediate discount on fixtures equal to 50% on the invoice, as an alternative to the tax deduction.
With the discount on the invoice, instead of taking the expense into tax deduction, recovering it in 10 years, a discount is applied directly on the invoice of the energy-saving windows. Therefore it is the company that carries out the intervention to advance the deductible amount to the customer. The company carrying out the work, in turn, can recover the expense in the form of tax credit.
As of today, it is possible to access the discount on the invoice also for interventions foreseen by the superbonus 110%In addition to the traditional interventions facilitated ecobonus, the bonus facades, the bonus renovation or earthquake bonus.Specifically, the discount in the bill frames can be applied to the replacement of old windows with new energy-saving models. You can thus have an immediate discount on new windows, to be used on existing buildings.
Credit assignment: an alternative to invoice discounting
La assignment of credit provides instead that the deduction due to the taxpayer, can be transferred in addition to suppliers, even to other entities such as banks and financial intermediaries. In this way, even the taxpayers unable to bring the expense in deduction, have the opportunity to receive benefits for interventions made on their property in the form of immediate liquidity to be used to carry out the intervention.
When must expenses be incurred to take advantage of the discount on the invoice?
In order to qualify for the discount on the invoice or the assignment of the credit, the expenses must be incurred by the 1 July 2020 until 31 December 2021.

Tax deduction or invoice discount: a concrete example
But how does the invoice discount on fixtures work?
Let's say you have decided to provide for the replacement of windows, shutters, blinds and boxes, obviously choosing energy saving solutions.
A intervento which has a value total of 15,000.00 euro (including VAT).
Adhering to the irpef deduction, you pay the 15,000.00 euros according to the terms of sale established with the manufacturer.
La deduction of 50%7,500.00 euro, will then be recovered in 10 yearsby taking the IRPEF deduction 750.00 euro atyear.
With the option discount at invoice on the other hand you only pay the 50% of the total invoice, as the discount is immediate, with an increase due to the cost of discounting the tax credit.

The benefits of the invoice discount
