Moving to a foreign country can be daunting, especially when it comes to navigating through legal and tax systems. Italy, a dream destination for many digital nomads and travelers, is no exception. In this podcast episode, Nico guides you through what is needed to obtain the Italy nomad visa for any digital nomad, and how you can save money via Italy’s various tax incentive schemes.
Nico, an Italian tax advisor and immigration attorney, provides insights into navigating Italian’s tax law landscape. He understands from personal experience the complexities of living in more than one country, particularly regarding personal tax affairs, as he was born and raised in Italy but also spent some time in the U.S.
Having returned to Italy and begun working in taxes and accounting, Nico discovered that many expatriates live in Italy. He delved deeper into the topic and got certified from Italy and the United Kingdom. He also developed immigration services to help people move to Italy as the country has introduced some interesting tax breaks.
Italy might not be your first thought when considering tax optimization locations, mainly because it is known for its high tax burden on taxpayers alongside a high social security. However, it’s noteworthy that a high tax burden also parallels good-level welfare services which may be more appealing to some people.
If you’re considering Italy for tax reasons, it’s important to know that Italy has introduced new tax breaks. These breaks make it possible for persons earning above 50K to only be taxed at a 43 percent marginal rate. There are three main types of tax breaks if you relocate to Italy:
With these tax incentive programs in place, Italy definitely is a competitive option for digital nomads looking to optimize their taxes.
Moving to Italy requires some prerequisites, one of which is getting an Italian tax code. Once in Italy, you will need to renew your residence permit every year. The immigration process can take three to six months depending on your circumstances. One important point to consider when planning your move, whether for an Italy nomad visa or otherwise, is the date for tax purposes.
Cost is major thing to bear in mind when thinking of relocating to Italy. The cost of living could range from as low as 1,200 Euros to as high as 2500 Euros a month depending on your lifestyle. This adds to a comfortable lifestyle in a beautiful European country.
However, it’s always smarter to get some consultation before making a decision.
Making a move to Italy or to any foreign country is a big decision with many consequences. Therefore, it is advisable that before making that leap, you reach out to tax and immigration experts to guide you through the journey, making sure your decision does not put you in a position where you might face unwanted consequences later on.
Whether Italy is your final destination for tax purposes or you’re just looking for a beautiful country with good food and wonderful destinations to continue your nomadic lifestyle, planning ahead and getting your documents together should be a priority. With the right information and team of experts on your side, the Italy nomad visa or a new life in Italy can be yours!
