Did you know that as an Italian resident, you can reduce the impact of international double taxation?

MGI Worldwide accounting network member firm Studio Pragma publishes newsletter on Foreign Tax Credit

In its latest newsletter MGI Worldwide member firm MGI Studio Pragma, based in Fano, Italy, highlights that under Italian tax law, there are effective measures in place to address international double taxation.

Under Italian tax law, residents can reduce international double taxation by receiving a credit for taxes paid abroad.

Foreign Tax Credit

This mechanism, resembling an ordinary credit method, allows Italian tax residents to offset taxes paid abroad against their Italian tax exposure when the same income is subject to taxation in both jurisdictions.

Additionally, the Italian tax system offers a branch exemption regime that can be elected by eligible Italian taxpayers for further tax relief.

These proactive measures promote tax efficiency, prevent double taxation, and foster international tax cooperation.
