Investor Visa Italy: What are the main benefits?
Main Benefits of the Investor Visa Italy
Let’s consider also that Holders of the Investor Residence Permit will be authorized to move freely within the Schengen Area for a maximum period of 90 days every 180 days and they will also have the right to live, work and study in all 28 member states of the European Union. The process of obtaining the certificate of impediment, the Investor Visa and eventually permanent residence is centralised, digital and a decision for the visa application is usually made within 30 days.
One of the benefits that the Investor Visa Italy offers, is access to a special tax regime for new residents. This allows investor visa holders to transfer their tax residence to Italy and pay an annual substitute tax of EUR 100,000 on income generated abroad.
This condition applies only if the investor visa Italy holder has not been taxed in Italy for at least nine taxation periods out of ten.
This option may also be extended to family members for an additional EUR 25,000. The maximum duration of this preferential tax scheme is of 15 years.
