  • In the last few years, Italy has embarked on a program of economic and financial reforms to ensure the country's future sustainability and growth. As part of this program, the Italian Council of Ministers enacted Law Decree No. 91 of June 24, 2014 (the "Law Decree"), which introduces new measures, including tax ones, aimed at facilitating the access to financing by Italian companies. The principal innovations introduced by the Law Decree concern securitization and lending transactions and the debt markets.
