FISCAL INCENTIVE FOR INNOVATION
The metallurgical sector works with the extraction, transformation and application of metallic materials, such as iron, gold, silver and bronze, in addition to working with polymeric, ceramic and composite materials. From the eighteenth century, metallurgy became a science, and metallurgical processes began to be studied and explained, corroborating in the continuous improvement of the practices used until then. Currently, one of its main concerns is the improvement of these processes, aiming at the lowest environmental impact and seeking ecologically correct technologies, such as the development of projects aimed at reducing energy (or water) consumption in already consolidated processes.
Law 11.196 / 05, applied to activities aimed at this lower environmental impact, or even to the improvement of existing products or processes through other work fronts, can provide a financial return of up to 27% on the expenses incurred in these activities.
The metallurgical segment carries out several cases of competitive differentials around state, regional and even supply chain and distribution incentives, as well as the vast possibility of optimization of the parameters that generate fiscal credits brought to SPEDs taxes and contribution.
