On September 20 2021, the Italian Revenue Agency (IRA) published the draft circular letter (the Circular) aimed at providing a vast range of clarifications on the transfer pricing (TP) documentation’s legal framework.
The Circular has been drafted to provide further operational instructions on the changes introduced by the Administrative Provision No. 360494 of November 23 2020 (containing the new rules on TP documentation).
The Circular was released for public consultation for comments and proposals. The consultation closed on October 12 2021.
One of the most significant changes concerns the obligation of digital signature with the time stamp of the master file and local file. Indeed, before the date of submission of the tax return for the relevant tax year (i.e. November 30 2021), the two documents must be digitally signed and temporally marked by the legal representative of the taxpayer or his delegate.
