This amount should be equivalent to the input tax credit on inputs held in stock, and inputs contained in semi-finished or finished goods held in stock, as well as on capital goods. This should be reduced by the prescribed percentage points, on the day immediately preceding the date of exercising such option or the date of such exemption.
