Electronic invoicing

Since 31 March 2015 the Institute, in accordance with the regulations on electronic invoicing, may no longer accept paper invoices submitted by subjects resident in Italy.

Domestic providers are therefore required to issue electronic invoices through the Interchange System, managed by the Revenue Authority (Agenzia delle Entrate). IVASS Unique Code to be reported in all the electronic invoices is the following: UF3BVP.

System for the payment of VAT called “Split Payment”

The Decree of the Minister of Economy and Finance of 13 July 2017, has established that the administrations concerned by the rules on electronic invoicing shall be subject to the application of the regulations on the “Split Payment”. It follows that, starting from 1 July 2017, under the new system of split payments, IVASS has been required to pay directly to the Italian National Revenue - and not to the providers - the value added tax charged on the invoice.

Indicator of timeliness of payments

IVASS publishes the indicator of its average times for the payment of goods, services and works, called “annual indicator of timeliness of payments” (art. 33 of legislative decree n. 33/2013).

The indicator is published, in relation to each year, in the sub-section PAYMENT of the section “TRASPARENT ADMINISTRATION”.

The annual indicator has been calculated in compliance with the provisions of art. 9 of the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of 22 September 2014 and with the guidelines established in the Circulars of the Ministry of Economy and Finance n. 3 of 14 January 2015 and n. 22 of 22 July 2015.
