Italian VAT - A Practical Guide
4 hour course
Classroom: £269 +VAT per person
UK companies that trade with Italian companies need to understand the Italian system of VAT. Due to its local legislation and the recent changes, Italy has many strict rules that a UK business could overlook, leading to costly mistakes. This half-day course will help you understand everything you need to know about the complex Italian system of VAT, such as split payments or bank guarantees.
This course will define the Italian VAT territory and highlight the factors that need to be considered when dealing with Italian companies and with the Italian tax authorities. It explains when UK businesses need to register for VAT in Italy and guides you through the simplifications that are available to avoid registration. It will also examine the situations where a UK company would not charge its Italian customers output VAT, while identifying those elements of Italian input VAT that cannot be recovered.
Crucially, the course will consider in detail the Italian VAT treatments that are quite different to those of other countries and will illustrate what you need to do to be fully compliant when completing Italian VAT Returns, Intrastats and Annual VAT returns. It also explains the purpose of the split payment and the SDI.
