Who we are

Over the years the Italian government and authorities have been working hard to consolidate and simplify the Italian tax system.

However, like may tax systems in sophisticated modern States, the system is complex. This is a result of an organic growth of the rules, continued intervention aimed at providing tax breaks and reliefs, targeting tax-avoidance and introducing digital technology.

For foreign investors matters are further complicated by language and cultural barriers.  The Italian Tax Agency has made a limited start to publishing directly in English. But obtaining clear and concise guidance on many aspects of the Italian tax system in the English language is difficult.

The idea behind this site and the rationale behind our service offering is to try and open up some of the perceived complexities of the Italian tax scene. We attempt to put the non-Italian language speaker at least in the same position as the native speaker.
