Do you want to activate SPID for professional use?

The digital identity for professional use conveys, in addition to the data of the natural person, also the data of the legal person (such as VAT number, type of company, etc.) and can be requested to access services dedicated to professional purposes:
  • for the professional use of the natural person, which carries only the data of the natural person;
  • for the professional use of the legal person, providing the data of the natural person and the organisation to which they belong.
The legal manager of an organization (company, entity, business, etc.) can request and use their digital identity to access online services. For this purpose, it is also possible to equip your employees with digital identities for the professional use of the legal person.
