Good point Geordie,

Skyping with a colleague this morning who has been an e-resident in Estonia for a couple of years. He has now bought an apartment just west of Tallin as they have a very simple non onorous tax system. That would be too cold for me though, I need to be further south

I definately need to look at pros and cons before I jump as you suggest. Do you know if there's a 183 day rule in Italy for residents?

Yes there is. No it won't help you if you're thinking staying outside the country. You would need to be registered for residence and all the days registered count. Even if you're outside the country.

Not too sure that's correct Nick, this is the DTC between the UK and Italy. However it is the rate of tax in Italy that would be a concern. The rates are shown here....

Quote:
(1) For the purposes of this Convention, the term "resident of a Contracting State" means
any person who, under the laws of that State, is liable to taxation therein by reason of his
domicile, residence, place of management or any other criterion of a similar nature
Italian tax code defines residence

1) Resident (Aka registered in the Anagrafe)
2) Domicile
3) Centre of interest

If any of those three tests are met for more than half a year (AKA 183 days) you're tax resident in Italy.

Now the tax treaty only comes into play if the OP is also tax resident in the UK.

Yes, I read that as well.

My situation is a little odd as I pay myself a rate below the UK tax threshhold as pocket money and live entirely on expenses. Example: 3 months on Antwerp refinery project, living in aparthotel all costs charged to my micro company UK.

My vehicle is a Transit Custom dayvan (surf wagon) registered to company so running costs not personally to me.

I pay 19% corp tax on anything I can't spend at end of each year although I prefer to take time out so not much to pay.

If I can navigate the DT rule UK/Italy that would be good so I need to look how to plan so as to not trip myself up later on.

Hi everybody, hope you had a great Christmas

Looking at the drivers licence situation it looks like during the 2020 transition getting an Italian DL means the surrender of my UK DL (one per EU 28)

How does it work with non-EU licences? Do you sit the test? Asking because I also have a non-EU licence.

Non EU depends on which license. Some I think can be exchanged others you're back at step one. Theory test and road test.

Go to your local driving school and ask. Or go here and check the list
