Cash strain is considered one evasion strategy, but the verdict on the results is controversial. At the top of the list of countries giving less cash space are France and Portugal with 1,000 euros and Greece with a threshold of 1,500 euros.
Most allowed nationsinstead they are Poland and Croatia where the limit is 15,000 euros and the Czech Republic 14,000 euros. In the middle ground, Romania (2,100), Spain (2,500), Belgium (3,000), Slovakia (5,000) and Bulgaria (5,500). There are no restrictions, as mentioned, in Germany.
In Italy in the last twenty years there have been many oscillations, with succession of different governments. It went from 12,500 euros under Berlusconi's government in 2002 to the lowest limit, 1,000 euros, introduced ten years ago by the Monti government. In the middle we find 5,000 euros to Prodi's executive and 2,500 to Berlusconi's last government.
Now with maneuver we are thinking of a gradual decline: the current ceiling is 3,000 euros, introduced in 2016 by the Renzi government. It should fall to 2,000 euros in two years in order to reach 1,000 euros in 2022. But there are also those who would like more flexibility, stopping at the 2000 euro limit, at most 1,500.
