Italian Black List reporting

The Black List is an Italian declaration which Italian VAT registered businesses must complete if they are dealing with companies from certain other countries. These countries have been deemed as unsuitable for political or human rights reasons. Italian companies must list all sales or purchases from companies with a permanent establishment in the nominated countries. The requirement also extends to foreign companies with a non-resident VAT registration in Italy.
