A 200% corporate income tax deduction is provided for investments in machinery and computer programs connected to automation systems. 

Qualified machinery and computer programs must be able to be depreciated under the Revenue Code and acquired by 31 December 2025 in a ready-to-use stage. 

The cost of repairing or restoring the machinery to its original condition does not qualify for a double deduction.
