Limited liability Company in Italy

Limited Liability Company (abbreviated “S.r.l.” in Italian, Società a responsabilità limitata): This is a legal entity in which the members’ (shareholders’) interests are represented by shares. It could potentially be made up of a single shareholder.

The S.r.l. is frequently chosen by Italian entrepreneurs beginning a new business since the company’s assets are completely separate from those of its members, giving them the significant advantage of limiting their liability to the amount they contributed. In other words, the company’s creditors can only satisfy their claims up to the value of the company’s assets. Creditors are not permitted to pursue the assets of single members if the assets are insufficient.

Compulsory regulation

The articles of incorporation must be signed by the shareholders in a public deed under Italian law. This necessitates the signing of the articles of the organization in front of a Notary Public.

A person who wants to form an Italian limited liability corporation has two options: either execute the articles of association himself or hire a special counsel.

It will be necessary to receive the Company VAT number (Partita Iva) from the Agenzia Delle Entrate once the Articles of Association have been completed. The request is submitted electronically, and the VAT number is normally issued the same day.
