Presentazione del volume
With this publication, Assoimmobiliare seeks to address the main regulatory and tax issues related to the Real Estate industry in Italy. The aim is, on the one hand, to help foreign and Italian investors to find their way around the "sea of regulations" governing the world of real estate, illustrating the options available to the investor through new investment instruments (i.e. SICAF) and the recently introduced major revisions to the existing ones (i.e. Funds and SIIQs) and, on the other, highlighting possible areas for new legislative measures aimed at improving such regulations, in order to reduce the uncertainty of the legal framework and to increase the competitiveness of the Italian real estate market. Indeed, the uncertainty regarding some regulatory and tax aspects undoubtedly leads some international investors to look at other countries where similar conditions are matched by a much lower level of uncertainty. It also results in a higher country risk which, in terms of the economic mechanisms that govern investments, gives rise to the need for greater remuneration.
