The aim of all contractors is basically the same: to keep their independence, retain as high a % of gross earnings as possible, remove the burden of administration and to avoid getting in trouble with the tax authorities. Our Italian partners have just the solution for you! APPLY NOW! Italy with its increasing opportunities for international contractors, climate, food, culture and lifestyle is a fantastic place to work and to live.
One of the significant drawbacks for international contractors is the Italian taxation system. The Italian tax system is complex, general taxation and social costs can be quite high when compared with what international contractors are used to. Authorities are growing ever more aggressive in targeting Contractor Management Companies and Contractors.
It’s highly recommended to get expert advice on your financial situation if you are contracting or intend to contract in Italy. Your expected net return in Italy can vary from between 55% and 80% depending on a number of factors: whether you have lived in Italy over the past 5 years, length of your contract, intended length of stay in Italy, the industry you work in, number of dependents, your nationality, whether the contract is direct to client or through a recruitment agency. There are a number of options available to you and the one that is best suited to your circumstances will depend on the answers to the above questions. For instance, if you’re an EU citizen your ‘employer’ could detach you from another EU country with lower social security payments.
Contact us now and provide us with information on your specific situation and with our vetted Contractor Management partners we will ensure that you net the highest possible % of your gross income whilst ensuring that you are compliant with all Italian regulations.
