METHODS OF PAYMENT
The fee can be paid to IVASS in two instalments:
- one in the form of advance payment, by 31 January, equal to 50 per cent of the fee paid in the previous year;
- one as a balance, by 31 July (or by the deadline established by IVASS after the the issuing of the annual decree), calculated on the basis of the rate of contribution as determined by decree of the Minister of Economy and Finance for the reference year.
