Starting a business in Italy

Corporate changes and compliance

Frequently, during the business activity of the company, shareholders and directors decide to modify the company's structure, governance or, more generally, the rules relating to the functioning of the company, or intend to proceed with the winding up of the company.

Moreover, usually directors, as part of their internal management activity, must proceed with the drafting of deeds and documents, such as notices of convening of the shareholders' meeting or of the Board of Directors, the drafting of the related minutes and written resolutions, as well as the granting of proxies or powers of attorney to perform specific activities.

In addition, it often happens that the company intends to cooperate with other companies in order to face the competition on the global market by entering into joint venture agreements.

Finally, Italian law requires all companies, in some cases and within certain deadlines, to carry out certain bureaucratic activities, linked to the company's tax profile, such as the drafting and approval of the annual financial statements.

In the area of corporate changes and post-incorporation services, our team can provide the client with the necessary advice and support to ensure that the company is compliant with Italian law.
