PROHIBITED AND RESTRICTED ITEMS
Italy is a member of the EU and European restrictions apply for goods being imported from other member states, while stricter controls are in place for those outside the EU.
Specific items prohibited from being imported depend on your origin and the carrier you choose, but will include:
- Antiques (breakable and/or fragile)
- Hazardous or combustible materials (as defined in IATA Regulations)
TAX AND CUSTOMS
There is a Double Taxation Convention between the UK and Italy that was established on 31st December 1990 and took effect in 1991. This ensures that residents and corporations of either country do not pay twice the amount of tax that they owe. For further information about tax in Italy, visit the website of the Italian Revenue Agency - the Agenzia delle Entrate.
The VAT in Italy is known as IVA and stands at 22%, although there is a lower 4% rate applied to the following goods:
- basic food products
- some social services
- dailies, periodicals, and books
- some seeds and fertilisers
Customs and import duties do not apply to fellow members of the EU, thanks to the internal market and free movement of goods.
