  • WORKING TOGETHER UNDER ITALIAN LAW – BUSINESS NETWORK CONTRACTS

    In 2009, Italian Law introduced a new legal instrument, Business Network Contracts (‘BNC’), which allow aggregations of commercial entities to work together in an organised and durable manner (without having to establish a new company or a consortium) whilst retaining their own independence and individuality, as well as benefitting from various incentives and tax benefits.
