Italian Patent Box Regime
Since 2015, tax payers in Italy can elect for the Patent Box regime which allows exemptions from corporate income tax (IRES) and local tax (IRAP) on income from qualifying intellectual property.
The regime was introduced to encourage IP development, prevent tax evasion and create tax legislation compliant with the measures of Action 5 of the OECD BEPS initiative.
