GENERAL TERMS HOBBIEST, AMATEURS, COLLECTORS AND NON PROFESSIONAL SELLERS
Following the Italian laws,
- people without a VAT registration or without authorisation
to sell to public, cannot sell their plants or any own properties,
during a public exhibition or even between members;
- basing on DL 4-12-97 n. 460, it is allowed to associations
to occasionally raise funds, even with low value goods;
to avoid serious fiscal-burocratic problems, AIPC board of directors
has carefully studied with authorities and has finally decided to
offer this solution to AIPC members and other European associations

their plants, cuttings or divisions which will be held in
