Advance tax agreements are binding agreements between taxpayers and the Italian Revenue Agency aimed at enhancing tax compliance and promoting the business of multinational enterprises by providing certainty on international tax issues in advance.
The arrangements are based on mutual cooperation and transparency between taxpayers and the Italian Revenue Agency. An advance tax agreement may be requested by resident companies conducting international activities, meeting a set of requirements.
