The VAT compliance measures include options for:

  • Quarterly electronic transmissions to the Italian tax authorities of certain VAT information (invoices issued, received, and booked and customs-related information)
  • Electronic transmissions to the Italian tax authorities of daily payment details by retailers

Retailers and VAT payers electing to comply with these reporting measures will benefit from certain relief such as priority processing of VAT refund requests and a reduced statute of limitations (one year) on VAT assessments. The elections must be made by 31 December 2016.
