When should the related party transactions be declared in the Modelo 232?


When the total amount of the operations between two related party exceeds the market value of 250,000 Euro, all controlled transactions with that related party must be declared, independently of its amount. The declaration should be submitted for each related party, for type of transaction and valuation method, without the netting of amounts.
For example: If a company has 3 types of transactions with the same related party:
  • Sale of products – 100,000 Euro
  • Purchase of products – 60,000 Euro
  • Payment of interests – 95,000 Euro
All three operations should be declared independently.

Specific transactions

All transactions carried out with all related entities of the same type and which exceed the overall total market value of 100,000 Euro, must be declared. The following are considered specific transactions:
  • the transactions carried out by taxpayers subject to Personal Income Tax, in the development of an economic activity, to which the method of objective estimation is applied with those entities in which the taxpayer or spouse, ancestors or descendants, individually or collectively, hold a stake equal or higher than 25 percent of the equity or share capital
  • the transactions involving the transfer of business
  • the transactions involving transfer of equity or shares representing the participation in the share capital of any entity not admitted to a negotiation process in any regulated securities market, or admitted to a negotiation process in a regulated securities market situated in countries or territories considered as tax havens
  • the transactions involving real estate properties
  • the transactions involving intangible assets

Transactions of the same type

All transactions carried out with all related entities of the same type and for which the same valuation method applies, must be declared, provided that the total amount of such transactions within the tax period is greater than 50 percent of the turnover of the entity, regardless of the amount of the compensation for the total number of transactions carried out with the same related person or entity.

Operations excluded from the Modelo 232

  • Fiscal groups (regardless the volume of their operations)
  • AIES, UTES (regardless of the volume their operations), except UTEs or other analogous forms of collaboration that benefit from the Exemption of income obtained abroad through Permanent Establishment(s) (Article 22 CITL)
  • Transactions carried out in the area of public offers for the sale or acquisition of securities (regardless of the volume of transactions)
