A tax efficient structure for Italian solar energy projects
European Investment Fund
After the Italian Government announced incentives for sustainable energy investment, our client asked us to help structure a solar energy project to take advantage of the scheme.
- We enabled an efficient level of debt funding with a tax efficient operating and exit strategy.
- Investors received a two-tier structure that allowed them to choose the character of their investment returns.
- We managed all this in line with the tightly drafted Italian anti-avoidance provisions governing offshore investments.
