Turquoise-Green Government Program Contains Pleasing Proposals
Attention cheering news: All of our demands to conserve resources and save the repair trade in our 2018 parliamentary petition are in the government program!
The proposed measures include:
- Tax reductions for repairs
- Access to repair information and spare parts
- Support for repair cafés
- Promotion of voluntary dealer guarantees
- Support for the development of the Ecodesign Directive and the VAT Directive
ACHTUNG: Die im ZIB-Beitrag genannte Preisreduktion von € 152,- auf unter € 140,- (für die Vor-Ort Reparatur von Waschmaschinen) ist allein die Wirkung einer MwSt.-Reduktion. The "repair bonus" also mentioned in the program, which already exists in Graz, Upper Austria and Lower Austria, would reduce the reduced price even further: to € 70! (Each household gets 50% of the repair costs replaced, up to a total funding of 100, - / year.).
