  • Tipo Dato: the word “INTENTO” must be reported;
  • Riferimento Testo: you must report the reception protocol of the intent declaration and its progressive separated by the sign “-” or “/” (ex.08060120341234567-000001)
  • Riferimento Data: you must report the date of reception given by the Agenzia delle Entrate containing the protocol of the declaration of intent.

These requirements make up the rest of the changes demanded by the Agenzia delle Entrate as of January which also include the new rules for the archiving of electronic documents.
