27 Mar 2015Italian Tax Authorities usually challenge the leveraged buyout transactions under the consideration that at the end of the acquisition process a significant debt is allocated to the operating company. The debt, obviously, generates interest able to reduce the company’s taxable income and this seems to be an event to be duly investigated. The leveraged buyout (Lbo) is a method for acquiring a company, well known in the US since 1960 and frequently applied also in Europe in the following decades.
16 Mar 2015The “rent-to-buy” Agreement, well known and used in the United States, will also be used in Italy. With the tight credit market and stricter down payment requirements, rent-to-buy has emerged as a trend for people who otherwise would not be home buyers. With the real estate market prices dropping and credit access not as easy for the middle class, consumers are taking a harder look at rent-to-buy agreements, in which potential home owners commit to a multi-year lease with a future option to buy the property.

Il disegno di legge di stabilità 2015 contiene importanti misure agevolative relativamente alla fiscalità riservata ai redditi generati da beni immateriali (“Patent box”). Per i soggetti che generano redditi attraverso l’uso di determinati “intangibles”, direttamente o attraverso la concessione in uso a terzi, è prevista la possibilità di optare per un regime agevolativo che li detassa per il 50%. L’opzione sarà vincolante per 5 esercizi e, per il caso di utilizzo diretto dei beni, la quantificazione dei redditi avviene attivando apposita procedura di “ruling”. È prevista inoltre la detassazione integrale delle plusvalenze realizzate attraverso la cessione degli “intangibles” a condizione che almeno il 90% del corrispettivo sia reinvestito, entro i due esercizi successivi, nella manutenzione o sviluppo di altri beni immateriali agevolabili.
