Post Start a new business in Italy - Thoughts?

Hi there! I'm in the USA and thinking very serously to start a new business in Italy - Rome area. This would be a machine shop type basically upgrading guns for the gun shooter community. We are working with the Italian police on other logistics. Any help in this area would be great. Thanks!!!

Default Italian Lawyer & Accountant to set up new business in Italy

Hi Jcarymba

I have recently relocated to Rome too so maybe can give you some useful tips

I was introduced to an Italian firm of lawyers/accountants by my UK accountants and so far, I would not hesitate to recommend them. The lawyer did all the preliminary work including the setting up of an srl and the incorporation before the Notary with Power of Attorney

He drafted our memorandum and articles similar to our UK company and registered the newco at the Chamber of Commerce, providing us with a VAT code for the invoices

the accountant is in the same room so we can ask any questions at the same time, keeping all our eggs in the same basket, so to speak

I have seen that someone else posted an estimate of costs in this thread, I definitely paid much less than that for BOTH the lawyer and the accountant, i.e. the complete package

as you will be operating in a highly regulated business (I Imagine), you will need to seek preliminary advice in any event to ensure that your company will have all licences to operate from Italy


speak soon and have a good Easter

Cheru

Default small business

Hi guys,

I see this thread finished sometime ago, but I desperately need some answers. Me and my partner thinking about moving to Italy. As we know well the economical situation there is not so good. First question then is:
Is there any chance to open small business in Italy?
(cafe, fasfood, shop)
My second question, probably more detailed.
How much money I would need to open one?

I am sorry but I don't really know the situation there and I expect it could be not that easy, as it is eurozone and I am just being concern if the situation there will not be similar to the one in Greece.

Will appreciate any information.

Thanx
