Investing, buying a home and setting up a business in Italy

Italy, one of the most beautiful countries in the world, has always had a unique relationship with Poland, so much so that they are the only two European countries that refer to each other in their national anthems:

“Marsz, Marsz Dąbrowski, z ziemi włoskiej do Polski”.

“Già l’Aquila d’Austria Le penne ha perdute. Il sangue d’Italia, Il sangue Polacco, Bevé, col cosacco, Ma il cor le bruciò”.

In the aftermath of the pandemic, the Italian government has worked to ensure that the EU receives as much of the Reconstruction Fund as possible, which many have described as the true “Marshall Plan” as a result of the severe economic consequences of the COVID-19 crisis.

Italy received around EUR 210 billion.

These measures were included in the so-called The National Plan for Reconstruction and Resilience (Reconstruction Fund) and will be devoted to support various sectors, in particular:

  1. IT- technological infrastructure;
  2. infrastructure, construction;
  3. ecological transformation;
  4. research, pharmaceuticals, biotechnologies.

Moreover, as a result of the massive transition to remote work, more and more foreigners are choosing to move to Italy to work remotely in such a wonderful environment as the Italian environment.

More and more foreigners are interested in buying real estate in Italy (for private purposes or to benefit from passive income through short-term rental – booking, RBNB etc.).

Many Polish entrepreneurs show a willingness to move to Italy to do business while having Italian resident status, entitled to the significant advantages that the Italian government makes available to those who intend to invest in and / or relocate there.

In this respect, our law firm can help Polish entrepreneurs in:

  1. obtaining Italian tax and civil residence if you intend to move to Italy and take advantage of the exemptions and opportunities provided for in this regard by Italian law;
  2. acquisition of shares in Italian companies in their own industry (so-called “M&A”);
  3. the acquisition of real estate for personal use or business;
  4. starting a business in Italy using resources for those intending to invest in Italy, provided under the National Plan for Reconstruction and Resilience, and with possible regional, national and EU funding.
