Preparing to export
Selling to Italy is often best achieved by appointing an agent or a distributor.
Contact the DIT team in Italy at: www.gov.uk/government/world/organisations/uk-trade-investment-italy#contact-us to help find tax and legal advisers before entering into any distribution or agency contracts. Always seek appropriate trade and bank references before consigning goods.
Italian corporate law differentiates between
limited liability companies
The most common types of companies are:
Società per Azioni (S.p.A) which are companies with liability limited by shares
Società a responsabilità limitata (S.r.l) which are companies with liability limited by quotas
If you want to set up a company in Italy, you can complete the necessary procedures through business assistance organisations known as Sportello Unico Attività Produttive (SUAPs). See: www.impresainungiorno.gov.it/en/services-directive/establishment/setting-up-a-new-legal-entity
