Clever Desk, a support for businesses and entrepreneurs

Clever Desk is an answer to the needs of companies. Our goal is to support entrepreneurs in difficult contexts raised by current global emergencies and by interpreting the main regulatory updates.

Clever Desk is organized with two reference partners who, act as the first point of contact for the company, evaluate the specific request and then send it to our specialized hub. This approach allows us to be agile and specialized at the same time and we are therefore able to provide assistance in most subjects: tax & legal, corporate, financial, contributions and incentives, human resources & payroll, outsourcing and digital.
