VAT Number Italy How to obtain VAT number Italy

Direct identification in Italy of foreign subjects. Fiscal representative in Italy. The two possibilities to sell in Italy from abroad. For all tax compliance we take care of it with fixed rates.

With this article we want to discuss the obligations and possibilities for a foreign company to obtain Vat number Italy

A foreign EU operator that makes supplies of goods or services to private consumers (B2C operations), without a permanent establishment in Italy, has the obligation, if it exceeds certain turnover limits (now 35.000 euro), to pay VAT and carry out all the obligations that the law imposes (payments, tax settlements, booking of invoices issued and received, sending settlement, communication, INTRASTAT models, annual reports, etc.)

There are two possibilities for carrying out these tasks:

Direct identification in Italy (only for entities addressed in the European community)

– Appointment of fiscal representative in Italy (possible option for both EU and non-EU entities)

The two solutions are to be carefully evaluated both in terms of costs and in terms of liability.

In the first case, the foreign subject carries out the foreseen obligations directly or more easily through the services of a local professional. In the second case, without prejudice to the subjectivity of the foreign subject of the operations carried out, the fiscal representative assumes joint and several liability directly with the represented entities. In other words, the Fiscal Administration can request taxes due, penalties, interest also from the tax representative.

By now many foreign companies carry out sales in Italy to private consumers via the Internet, by mail or other methods and consequently need a tax representative in Italy or obtain VAT number Italy through a direct identification.

Our firm has therefore organized a tax representation or direct identification service according to needs and situations, for foreign companies or entities that allows them to operate safely in Italy by fulfilling all tax obligations with ease.

For direct identification, our rates start at 200 euros per month and are matched by the volumes of transactions carried out in Italy or Europe and the turnover. For tax representation, increasing our responsibilities and becoming sympathetic to the representative, our rates start from 300 euros/month always according to the volumes of documents and business. The position of tax representative is also required to deposit a guarantee or the granting of a bank or insurance trust.
