First contact - a simple procedure for European businesses entering the Italian market
Services providers can fill out a short, online form to be sent directly to the Municipal one-stop shop for licenses and permits in the township where they would like to practice their activity, in order to gather information about relevant government procedures or legal requirements. For regulated professions, additional data regarding the professional qualification shall be provided..
The municipal one-stop shop for licenses and permits will reply within a few days and at no charge to all inquiries via the email address you furnish in the online form.
NOTE: This service is implemented in those municipalities which use the online One-stop shop (SUAP) offered by the Chambers of Commerce - that means about 3,700 out of the 8,000 Italian townships. Alternate contact details will be provided in case the One-stop shop you are interested in has not adopted this service.
