The supervisory fee is to be paid by insurance and reinsurance undertakings entered in the Register of Undertakings and by the undertakings with head office in another member State belonging to the European Economic Area, registered in the lists in the appendix to the Register.
According to the Code of Private Insurance, the fee shall be established by 30 May of each year by decree of the Minister of Economy and Finance, after hearing IVASS, and shall be published in the Official Journal and in IVASS’ Bulletin by 30 June.
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.
The fee is proportional to the premiums earned in the previous year, excluding levies and taxes and net of a percentage for operating expenses set by IVASS year by year in an ad hoc order.
For the EU undertakings registered in the lists in the appendix to the Register the fee is calculated on the premiums earned in Italy.
Since IVASS has joined the PagoPA system, undertakings required to pay the supervisory fee shall calculate the amount of the contribution to be paid to IVASS (either as an advance payment or as a balance).
Afterwards, through the portal accessible via the address https://web1.unimaticaspa.it/unipay/startPayment.jsp?tenant=ivass they must generate the PagoPA payment notification containing the IUV code (Unique Payment Identifier), the details, the reason for the payment and amount to pay.
You can access the portal by entering as username, in lower case:
- the Italian tax code in case of undertakings entered in the Register of Undertakings;
- IVASS number of registration (for ex. i.00000) in case of EU undertakings registered in the lists in the appendix to the Register.
For first time access, the password is the same as the username, always in lower case. The system will then allow you to create a personal password to be used for future access.
The payment notification may be paid through credit card in the Unimatica portal. As an alternative, the PagoPA payment notification may be paid to all the Payment Service Providers (PSP) licensed to the PagoPA service using the specific methods described in the PagoPA notifications (banks, payment offices, tobacconists, automated teller machines).
The updated list of the licensed PSP is available on the website of PagoPA S.p.A at the address: https://www.pagopa.gov.it/it/prestatori-servizi-di-pagamento/elenco-PSP-attivi/.
