What is Etsy Remitting to Italian Tax Authorities?

Etsy is required by the Italian government to collect and remit certain taxpayer information and sales data to the Italian tax authority on a quarterly basis.

You can read Italy’s legislation for this here.

For sellers in Italy, we must report the number of sales as well as the gross sales you’ve received from EU buyers located outside of Italy.

For EU sellers outside of Italy, we must report the number of sales as well as the gross sales to Italian buyers.

Gross sales means the total reportable amount of funds transacted during sales, and includes shipping, refunds, card processing fees, tax collected by you, and even canceled orders.

We may be required by the Italian tax authority to securely share your full name, email address, sales total, and taxpayer details with the Italian government upon request.

How do I find the amount Etsy remits?

You can find the sales we report to Italy by downloading your Orders CSV file.

To use your Orders CSV to see the amounts:

  1. Open Shop Manager.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click Options.
  4. Click the Download Data tab.
  5. Select Orders as the type.
  6. Choose the year but leave the month blank.*
  7. Download and open the CSV. 
  8. Look for and sort the Buyer Country column.
  9. Add the Processing Fee and Order Net columns for sales that were completed by buyers in Italy.

If you have any canceled orders from Italian buyers, you should also count those.

To find your canceled orders:

  1. Open Shop Manager.
  2. Click Orders & Shipping.
  3. Click the Completed tab.
  4. Select Canceled under the Completed status on the right.

Etsy doesn’t have a separate summary available for what is reported to the Italian tax authorities.

*If you've made a large number of sales during the year, you may want to download each month separately, rather than download the full year.
