Starting a new job as a freelance teacher? The school might recommend that you get registered for VAT under the flat-tax regime (regime forfettario). Nothing wrong with that – simplified accounting formalities, no need to add VAT onto invoices etc.
But have a word with us before you do. You might be exempt tax under a double tax treaty or entitled to a 50% exemption under the regime for new arrivals in Italy. Both of these are for a limited number of years. Also, if for example you are working part time, you might be under the threshold for paying tax and social security. The regime forfettario is not always the best fit.
