Branch or Permanent Establishment

Italy offers the opportunity to set up a branch office also called permanent establishment. The incorporation takes about one week and it doesn’t require the client’s or its representative’s physical presence to hire employees, lease office and so on.

Since it is not considered as a separate legal entity despite Transfer Price rules, a branch has the same obligations of a limited company: keeping the accounting, respecting the tax compliance deadline, and being a taxpayer.
