Italy passes bill on double taxation avoidance in ROC
Italy’s Chamber of Deputies passed legislation Wednesday aimed at avoiding double taxation with Taiwan.
It is the first time Italy’s parliament has passed legislation related to relations with Taiwan.
The bill gained the support of the center-left Democratic Party, the largest party in the Chamber of Deputies, as well as other center-right opposition parties.
Stanley Kao, Taiwan’s representative to Italy, said that due to the increase in bilateral trade between Taiwan and Italy in recent years, small and mediumsized businesses on both sides are eager to see the passage of legislation on the avoidance of double taxation.
