Mandatory company books

When forming a company in Italy or opening an Italian Branch, it is mandatory to keep a series of company books and registers for a period of 10 years in order to provide a valid control support to third parties, i.e. tax authorities, suppliers, banks, etc..

Failure and/or irregular conservation of books and accounting records may cause civil, tax and penal sanctions to be imposed, which vary according to the type of irregularity considered.

Limited liability companies and Italian Branches are obliged to keep the following books:

  • Book of shareholders' decisions, in which the minutes of the shareholders' meetings and, if necessary, decisions taken through written resolutions are recorded
  • Book of directors' decisions, where the administrative form chosen is the Board of Directors.


Joint-stock companies must keep the following books:

  • Book of shareholders' decisions, in which the minutes of the shareholders' meetings are registered
  • Book of directors' decisions, where the administrative form chosen is the Board of Directors
  • Book of meetings and resolutions of the Board of Statutory Auditors.
