Registration for VAT Purposes in Italy for Non-Residents/Appointment of a Fiscal Representative for VAT Purposes

Non-resident companies, in order to perform specific activities connected to export of goods to Italy are required to register for VAT purposes in Italy or to appoint a Fiscal Representative domiciled in Italy.

With more than 20 years’ experience, A&P supports clients for VAT related matters concerning international transactions.

A non-resident company, needing to export goods to Italy for further sale or usage within the Italian territory through a so-called tax warehouse, will need an Italian VAT identification number or a Fiscal Representative domiciled in Italy when removing the goods from the tax warehouse.

Non-resident taxpayers can claim an Italian VAT identification number by submitting a VAT registration form to the Italian Revenue Agency.

Investing in Italy: Real Estate

The ownership of real estate in Italy calls for different civil and tax obligations. If the real estate generates rental income, duties that vary according to the type of contract are meant to be paid.

In case of renovation works on real estate properties, generous tax incentives are provided.

The purchase and the sale of real estate occur through a public act (drafted by a notary). Moreover, it is recommended to register a preliminary contract for the property sale/purchase. The mere ownership of real estate in Italy is a prerequisite for the payment of municipal and revenue taxes (IMU and TASI).

If the real estate generates rental income, mandatory requirements of registration and payment of duties, that vary according to the type of contract, are required.

In case of renovation works, the Italian law requires generous tax incentives, subject to the compliance with all the requisites and the mandatory fulfillments.

A team of chartered accountants and tax advisors, experts on the Italian law on real estate will provide step-by-step assistance in:

  • the drafting and the registration of a preliminary contract for the property purchase/sale;
  • choosing and cooperating with the notary that will draft the public act of purchase/sale (predicting also the amount of duties to pay);
  • the payment of the annual municipal taxes;
  • managing the profitability of real estate: choosing the type of contract that is fiscally more favorable with regard to their own income situation, drafting and registering the lease contract;
  • managing the filing of the tax return on schedule and the payment of taxes;
  • providing ad-hoc consultancy on renovation works and verifying the requirements and documentation (saving from 50% to 80% of taxes).

Contact our office when:

  • you have found real estate you are interested in;
  • before drafting a lease contract;
  • before starting renovation works.

One of our consultants will book an appointment at our office or a video conference and will analyze your income situation to identify every step to follow in order to achieve the maximum efficiency/ tax saving (tax simulations and prediction on the amount of taxes to pay).
