(Teleborsa) – “At the end of 2020, 26% more companies were expected to be in insolvency. A frightening fact that made us introduce rules to support businesses, but also provisions that would give those in crisis more time to reorganize. Thus was born the great work on Decree ‘Business Crisis’. What has been done to date represents the first step of a much more ambitious project, now other measures will be needed to be introduced quickly, such as re-shoring or further initiatives to encourage the internationalization of our companies “. This was stated by the Deputy Minister of Economy and Finance, Laura Castelli, during the conference “Crisis prevention and management: a new business culture”, organized by the National Union of young chartered accountants and accounting experts with Ugdcec of Benevento, Odcec Benevento and the Ungdcec Study Center Foundation, and the patronage of the University of Sannio and the Municipality of Benevento.
“The ‘DL Crisi’ – he highlighted Matteo De Lise, president Ungdcec – provides entrepreneurs in difficulty with additional tools for the recovery of businesses that risk going out of the market. The preventive phase of the business crisis, which is the most important one, finally becomes central ”. “It is a reform – he added – which will also give dignity to all the parties affected by the business crisis, I am thinking of Board of Statutory Auditors and ai Control organs: the accountant will no longer be understood as a cost but as a value. The task of the professionals will now be that of being ready, being responsible and giving due weight to the hours of work that will be carried out “.
According to Carlo De Luca (UNGDCEC national council member) “the world has changed and will change further. Today it is difficult to use essential services, schools and universities have been overwhelmed by the pandemic, not to mention businesses. The accountants – he points out – ask that in the coming weeks there is no further tax for professionals and that previous training be recognized, it is an essential step in this historical moment “. The mayor of Benevento and former minister, Clemente Mastella, for his part, he stressed that “the crisis today closely concerns local authorities: it is difficult to guarantee services, there is a lack of funds but above all a lack of qualified personnel, it is difficult to think of intercepting European resources in these conditions. Furthermore, we cannot think that we have already emerged from the pandemic: difficult months still await us ”.
Marilisa Rinaldi, President of the Court of Benevento, observed that “with the implementation of Law Decree 118/2021, a change of mentality will also be needed for judges, who will have to be increasingly specialized. A specialized judge could best accompany the entrepreneur in overcoming the crisis, speeding up times and giving effective answers “. For Michele Monteleone, Deputy Judge of the Bankruptcy Section at the Court of Benevento: “The crisis has gripped the country for too many years, conditioning the work of professionals and forcing the legislator to continually intervene. But the term crisis also often travels with ‘opportunities’: comparison, growth and the desire to give voice to all the components can allow us to arrive at shared solutions that allow us to build a new economic fabric ”.
