P.IVA in Italy for self-employment and freelancers

If you are a foreign citizen planning to open a business or to provide goods and business services in Italy, then you need to register for local VAT. In Italy, the VAT identification number is called Partita IVA and it is an 11-digit sequence that identifies a tax subject who carries out commercial or professional activity. This number is aiming at tracking his activity in order to prevent tax frauds.


All freelancers and entrepreneurs that intend to work legally and earn more than € 5.000 annually in  Italy, has to register P.IVA:

  • Freelance consultants
  • Online vendors
  • Production of goods in Italy
  • Store owners

Then if you are opening a commercial endeavor, a store, or bar, you will then have to have a different setup, and it is a much longer process.


  • The forfettaria P.IVA is reserved for individuals who make less than 85,000€ a year. Under this PIVA the taxes on profit will be about 5% for the first 5 years, then 15%. On top of about 27% for INPS, your Italian pension contribuitions.
  • The other Partita IVA is a Regime Ordinario. Under this PIVA, the general taxes you pay will be higher, towards 24%-43%. Then you will need to pay the pension contributions which vary according to the activity.  This type of Partita IVA also allows you to hire employees and write off some expenses.

Some specific entrepreneurs registered, such as lawyers or architects, are required to make separate annual contributions, which vary depending on the region and the activities performed. Other persons engaged in business activities must register in the Chamber of Commerce.

Once the Partita IVA is opened, self-employed workers in Italy are subject to direct taxation: taxes are paid on the declared income.


All self-employers that declare annual income more than € 25.000 in Italy must now adhere to the e-invoicing regulations, set forth by the Tax Agency’s SDI platform. The requirements consist of an electronic invoice format and mode of submission.With these standards freelancers will have their billing processes easier. Another advantage is to have transparent communication with tax authorities.


The procedure for registration of P.Iva is quite fast: from the moment you check the client’s requirements to request it can take 24 hours. Taxation varies depending on the selected tax regime (fixed rate or regular rate) and the type of activity performed.
