Valladolid, Sep 20 (EFE).- The CEOE of Castilla y León demanded this Tuesday that the regional government chaired by Alfonso Fernández Mañueco (PP), follow the same path announced yesterday by his Andalusian counterpart, Juan Manuel Moreno, and previously Isabel Díaz Ayuso, from Madrid, and completely abolish the wealth tax, which in Castile and León has a minimum exemption of 700,000 euros.
In a statement, the businessmen argued that this measure would “benefit society as a whole and, above all, help revive the economy, revive business investment”.
The employers recalled that the PP had already promised at the national level the abolition of this tax, but they considered that it is particularly important “at a time of the economic cycle in a phase of slowdown”.
“It is a reality that favorable taxation contributes to the creation of wealth, jobs and, consequently, to the generation of higher public revenues”, argued the businessmen, convinced that “any measure aimed at stimulating investment” is decisive “to achieve greater competitiveness of our Autonomous Community, compared to others, such as neighboring Madrid or now Andalusia”.
The Confederation of Businessmen asks, in this sense, to follow “the path started of lowering and abolishing taxes, giving legal certainty and reliability to companies and investors, to accelerate and not put limits on the activity economy of the productive fabric”.EFE
