For employees of the Italian Public Administration - vat exemption and electronic invoicing.


L'esenzione IVA, ai sensi art.10 del DPR 633/72 - come modificato dall'art.14, comma 10 della legge 24 dicembre 1993, n.537, può essere richiesta solo dagli Enti Pubblici Italiani che considerino la partecipazione dei loro dipendenti al complesso delle attività previste nel programma del Congresso come equiparabile alla partecipazione a prestazioni didattiche quali corsi di formazione, aggiornamento, riqualificazione e riconversione del personale. Per richiedere l'emissione della fattura in esenzione IVA sarà necessario inserire il flag nel campo apposito nella pagina online relativa alla fatturazione e compilare la parte anagrafica corrispondente con i dati completi dell'ente. L'Ente Pubblico dovrà poi inviare dichiarazione alla Segreteria Organizzativa (via e-mail swesd2020registrations@mvcongressi.it) in cui si specifichi che il partecipante per cui viene pagata la quota d'iscrizione è un loro dipendente autorizzato a frequentare l'evento per aggiornamento professionale e nella quale si indichino tutti i dettagli necessari alla fatturazione elettronica. La fattura verrà così intestata all'Ente di appartenenza. NB: prima di procedere con l'iscrizione si prega di voler cortesemente verificare la correttezza dei dati di fatturazione.



When filling out the online registration form we strongly recommend to pay particular attention to the Invoicing page. Before registering, carefully check who the invoice shall be headed to and make sure you have all relevant information:

• header

• address

•VAT code

• fiscal code (for Italians only)

• PO number (if required)

Make sure the invoice details you are going to indicate are the correct ones. In case of requests for data corrections and/or invoice re-issuing due to wrong data submission, the Organizing Secretariat will apply a fee of € 40,00 for each new document re-issued, which shall be paid in advanced.

The forwarding of the abstract book will invalidate each claim for reimbursement.
