There are several ways to start a business in Italy, setting up of a company being the most common one. Alternatively, foreign companies can also choose to set up a branch office or a Representative Office (RO) in Italy if they do not plan on doing any profit-making activities within the nation.

Setting up payroll according to the country’s laws and regulations can be challenging. Italy operates under a progressive income tax where employees pay an income-based rate. Based on the industry sector and management level, Social Security contributions might vary. In Italy, payroll involves registration with the Labour Office, Social Security Institute, and the Insurance Institute - each process involving its deadline. Therefore, understanding the payroll process in Italy can be difficult for foreign businesses. NNRoad can help with the payroll implementation and ensure that your employees are paid as per Italy’s employment with relevant legal and compliance requirements.
