The Italian Budget Law 2019: an “anti-Bolkestein” regulation and the possible rejection by the EU Court of Justice.

The Italian Budget Law 2019 laid the ground for a reorganization of the entire discipline of maritime state property concessions, providing – inter alia – a regime of “automatic renewal” of the same. However, according to the EU Court of Justice, the automatic and general extension for the tourist exploitation of maritime state properties set forth by the Italian law “prevents to carry out an impartial and transparent selection of the candidates under the EU competition principles”. According to EU (see EU Directive 2006/123/EC, better known as “Bolkestein Directive”), in fact, the tourist exploitation of maritime state properties consists in “services over public soil” and, as such, it has to be subject to free competition.

International survey on the respect for privacy: principle of accountability and enforcement of EU Regulation 679/2016.

At the end of 2018, a few months after the full applicability of EU Regulation 679/2016 on the protection of personal data, most companies and public bodies have understood the concepts promoted by the Regulation related to the principle of accountability; despite this, there are still significant shortcomings in the effective implementation of specific policies for the protection of personal data.

Tax benefits for unspecialized employees : for football players and professional sportsmen, working in Italy is more convenient.

The cd. Growth Decree approved by the Government last Thursday 4 April and “subject to agreements”, therefore not yet definitive, provides, among different tax innovations, a particularly favorable treatment for the football players who come to play in Italy. In fact, by way of extension of the facilitated regime already in place for the c.d. “impatriati” (i.e. those who intend to transfer their residence in Italy), Irpef would apply only on 30% of the income taxable produced by unspecialized employees. The treatment would be even more advantageous in case the employee resides in a Southern Italy region, where the tax base drops to 10% of the income produced.
