Recent changes in the Italian Legislation tightened significantly the tax penalty system. The Italian Parliament has, in fact, extended the administrative liability of companies and entities to include some tax offenses. The new legislation also increased the penalties for tax crimes, lowered the thresholds for the criminal relevance of tax law violations, and extended the criminal sanction of the so called “confiscation for disproportion” to the more serious tax offenses.
In this scenario, it is essential for companies to adopt an organizational approach aimed at preventing the occurrence of tax violations.
