A business which is lawfully established in a Member State of the European Union can provide its services in other EU Member States on a temporary or occasional basis with no restriction other than the requirements set in the country of establishment; in particular, for cross-border provision of services there is no obligation to register a branch office in other Member States..

Additional obligations are foreseen in case of services that require the possession of a professional qualification. The list of regulated professions in Italy is published (in Italian) by the Department for European Policies.
