Tax code


Tax code

The tax code is essential if you need to carry out financial transactions in Italy,  for properties  and/ or  inheritance matters and it is also issued to non Italians.
The service is free of charge and is only for private individuals.
Companies must apply for  a tax code  in Italy, at the relevant  office of  the “Agenzia delle Entrate” .
Applications for a tax code  can only be submitted on line, by  completing the relevant online form (click here) and will be  received the same way, only in paper form, not  as a hard plastic version.
In order to receive the  tax code plastic card, you  should contact  the Office of the “Agenzia delle Entrate” in Italy, using  form AA4/8 , (please click here) .
Postal applications will regrettably be rejected.
Upon completion  of the form, you will receive a message to confirm that your application was successful.
Before  starting  filling  in the online form, please make sure you have already scanned the  following documents:

1)   A  copy of your current  id  (either passport or identity card).

2)  A copy of your proof of residence  in GB.(utility bills, council tax, bank statements).

Please note that the form can only be completed if you attach the relevant files.

The Tax Code includes your  personal  details  (name, surname, place and date of birth).
Married women who have dual nationality (British and Italian) should  send either a scanned  copy  of their Italian id document  (passport or identity card)  or  a copy of their  Italian  birth certificate, but not  a copy of their British passport.

This Notary Office cannot be held responsible for the issue of the wrong  tax code if the individual  fails to comply with these instructions.
Similarly, in case you already have a wrong tax code which was issued in Italy, please refer to the “Agenzia delle Entrate” that issued it, and  not to us.

PLEASE  ALSO NOTE  that  because of the high volume of applications, the timescale for processing a “codice fiscale” is up to 16 weeks. Please refrain from contacting this Office before that time to find out the status of your application.
Any proven urgent applications, if also properly marked in the “Remarks section”, will be dealt with, as a matter of urgency.
