I have recently had an email from a customer of mine in Italy

Customer Question

I have recently had an email from a customer of mine in Italy who is overdue with payment of an invoice. My customer claims that I have to fill out a number of forms 'concerning the identification of bank accounts dedicated / tracing of financial flows, as required by Italian law 136/2010' I am not aware of this law and have found it very difficult to gain any information on it. I would greatly appreciate more information. FYI The invoice is for publishing of an article in a magazine my comapny produces, the money owed is for the sum of £500 uk sterling approx 574 Euro at time of writing. I await your reply and thank you in advance

Yes, the law you referred to is posted at

It can be seen in bad partial English at

Article 3 requires traceability of money transfers.

I hope this information is helpful.

You're right it's not a very good translation.

From what I can make of the link you sent me it's Part 3 section 3 that relates to my situation however I am still not certain on how I'm implicated by it.


Essentially what I really want to know is 'according to this law do I definitely have to give the details they requested?' The reason I ask is that other Italian clients of mine haven't gone through this process with me so I don't see the necessity of going through this process with this client.
