What it is and what it is good for

The Single Business Communication is an online procedure which simplifies the registration of a new company in the Italian Business Register. It brings together in a single e-filing operation the following different applications to authorities such as the Chambers of Commerce, the national Revenue Agency (Agenzia delle Entrate), the National Institute for Insurance against Workplace Accidents (INAIL), the National Institute for Social Security (INPS) and local municipalities:

  • registration in the Italian Business Register
  • registration in the Economic and Administrative Repertory (REA)
  • requests for the Fiscal code and VAT number
  • registration of employees and other workers with the Social Security Agency, INPS
  • establishment of mandatory coverage for worker compensation and disability insurance with INAIL
  • the filing, if needed, at the local township's Point of Single Contact (SUAP) of the certified notification of commencement of the business activity (SCIA).
