Italy VAT Services


Eu and non-eu


The VAT threshold is the threshold for your total sales in Italy. Also known as remote sales, eu companies have a sales threshold of 35,000 euros in Italy. This means that when you reach or exceed this amount, you need to register VAT in Italy.


For non-eu companies, it is very different. If you want to store goods in any eu country/region through a distribution centre such as Amazon FBA, you need to register the VAT in the country/region of storage, regardless of the sales volume.


If you ship from your own non-eu country/territory, you have two options. Option 1- you must clear the goods to the destination eu country before you have to pay VAT and duty to the Italian authorities. In order to claim a refund, you must have registered for VAT.


Option 2- you can charge VAT and customs duties to your customers, but this can cause you a lot of trouble because you don't specify them before they buy.
