Why do I have to pay €2 stamp duty?

The €2 stamp (marca da bollo) you’ll see on invoices and receipts is required to pay the tax due on operations where VAT is not applicable. It is mandatory for all invoices for a total value of over €77.47 in accordance with law DM 24.5.2005. The stamp is automatically paid by DoveVivo on your behalf and you will therefore see the amount charged on your invoice.

Why do I have to pay for contract registration (or registration tax)?

Payment of the registration tax is mandatory because, after signing the contract, it is necessary to make it valid for legal purposes. To do this the lease must be registered to the Revenue Agency within 30 days from the date of signing by payment of the aforementioned tax. Registration tax must be renewed every year.
DoveVivo will pay the tax for the entire duration of the contract, debiting the part of your competence directly on the invoice.
The amount varies in based on the rental fee; you can find all the details on the first invoice we will send you.

How is the registration tax calculated?

Registration tax is divided 50% between DoveVivo (which is acting as owner) and the occupant and varies according to the type of property. For residential buildings, registration tax is 2% of the annual fee multiplied by the number of annuities adjusted for inflation as determined by Istat (Italian National Statistics Institute).

When is the ISTAT update applied?

The rent is updated every year to measure the rate of inflation recorded by ISTAT (National Statistics Institute) based on the cost of living.
The ISTAT evaluation should be applied to all active contracts of at least one year starting from the month following the annual deadline.
For example, if your rent amounts to 600 euros and the Istat index of the reference month is 1.2%, your rent, once updated, will be 607, 20 euro.
