The Italian tax authorities recently published several changes to the Spesometro obligations. Spesometro deadline extended...
Last 25 September 2017, the Italian Tax Authorities announced important changes on Intrastat returns impacting the reporting obligations of all taxpayers registered in Italy with an intra-Community activity.
Following previous amendments, the Italian government has issued a new protocol with rules that will apply as from January 2018. According to these new rules, the following changes are introduced:
According to the previous rules, the threshold to submit monthly Intrastat returns for intra-Community acquisitions was €50,000 for goods and services.
Unlike most European countries, Italy has a system where ECSL returns and Intrastat returns are merged. This circumstance explains why there are no thresholds for Intrastat returns on intra-Community supplies when it comes to report the VAT number and amount, although a threshold applies on the requirement to report statistical data on these supplies. France is the other country where these returns are merged into one filing for goods, DEB, and one for services, DES.
