  • 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.
