Self-employed Start up services

Starting Up a new business in Italy can seem daunting. Apart from the tax and social security issues, there may be permits and consents required. The key to success is getting professional help. We can help with easy English language support.

As far as tax and social security goes the applicable regime will depend in part on what kind of activity you are going to do – there are, for example, special rules for the agricultural sector. Lawyers engineers and accountants have their own social security arrangements. Rental income is not liable to social security contributions. So the system is intricate. What is vital is getting property advice up front – once you are registered under one regime, it is difficult (or expensive ) to change at a later date – so getting proper advice at the outset is vital.

Nationals of certain countries (e.g.EU member states and the U.S.A. may be able to opt to remain within their home country system and claim exepmtion from Italian contributions. Planning your income and estiamitng the taxes and contributions

What they say about us

Life has never been the same since

I am so glad I contacted Colin and his team before getting registered. The local commercialista said that I should be registered as "commerciante" meaning I would have been paying over Euro 3,000 of sociál security contributions even before I started earning any money. Colin sorted this out and made sure I started on the right regime.
