Emersione 2020 - Suspension for erroneous assessment of employer's insufficient income
The Apulia Regional Administrative Court, Bari seat, by order of suspension for the purpose of re-examination, granted the application with the following reasoning: "Considering that, after a summary examination of the precautionary phase, the complaint concerning the excess of power of the Public Administration with regard to the incorrect assessment of the employer's insufficient income (pursuant to art. 103, paragraph 1, decree law no. 34 of 19 May 2020, as converted by law no. 77 of 17 July 2020, and Article 9, paragraph 4, of Ministerial Decree of 27 May 2020), taking into account the VAT form produced and the turnover equal to € 39,261.00, as reported in Schedule VE24 of the 2020 VAT Form for tax year 2019;
