At the moment it seems that the invoice and not the receipt to be able to claim the bonus for new or used bicycles, including pedal assistance, scooters, hoverboards, segways or for the use of shared mobility services for individual use. This is the last detail made known by the Ministry of the Environment and which we can read directly on the site.
The bonus is open to people who have their residence in a center with more than 50 thousand inhabitants, a limit which however does not apply to capitals and metropolitan cities. Anyone who wants to request a refund will still have to download an app appropriate, which can be accessed only and exclusively with credentials SPID, it is good that every interested person who does not yet own them creates them now.
The methods of obtaining the Mobility Bonus, which we have already talked about in recent weeks, can be divided into two phases:
- Phase 1, for purchases from 4 May 2020 until the day the web application starts operating, a refund is expected; to obtain it, you must keep the expense document, which must be the invoice and not the receipt, and attach it to the application to be presented with the app;
- Phase 2, from the day the app starts operating, direct discount from the shopkeeper. Interested parties must indicate the medium or service they intend to purchase on the app, the platform thus generates the digital shopping voucher to be delivered to authorized suppliers.
Who can claim the bonus? Adult citizens with residence in one of the 14 metropolitan cities, in the regional and provincial capitals without the limit of 50,000 inhabitants, which is instead valid in the case of residence in all other municipalities. The invoice is also valid in English, but must include all the items of an Italian invoice. The refund is not foreseen for accessories, such as helmets. Once the discount coupon has been obtained, a possible click day is also evaluated today, given the lack of funds, it must be used within 30 days.
These modalities are valid until December 31, 2020, from 1 January 2021 the Mobility Bonus will be paid only in the event of scrapping carried out in the year 2021, with the possibility of spending the voucher by 31 December 2024. Those who use the voucher this year may also request another one on next year, the subsequent interministerial decree implementing the program will clarify any doubts.
