ZaK - Istat Report

Istat report is necessary for the National Italian Statistical Institute. More details on this report below:

  • it includes check-ins, and check-outs depending on the Region
  • only for some Regions, it includes information on the occupancy
  • it includes both domestic and foreign guests


In order to generate Istat reports, you have to subscribe to our PII package, which contains the modules for creating and sending the requested reports by institutions. You can do this from the page below:



↳ Useful link: Zak > Home > Zak Subscription



Once subscribed to the PII package, you can move to section Settings>PII and, to view a full list of all Plugins available for different countries, click the ADD NEW PII button on the top right.

Once the plugin is added and setup, you can start to generate reports from the page below (if you activated manual or semi-automatic upload):


↳ Useful link: ZaK > Reports > Reports > Istat


PLEASE NOTE: for some regions, the Istat report is now enriched with City Tax information. You can find more information about this in the documentation below:

Manual sending


First of all define the period for which you want to generate the report and the room/apartment types you want to include:






The second step is to "check guest information": the system will show you in green guests with all completed necessary information and in red those with missing data:



In the bottom table, you can see all guests with incomplete information. In order to complete it, you can go to the guest registration by clicking his/her name.





The "Continue" button will appear once missing data for guests you want to send are entered, or those who were listed in error are excluded from the report.


You can now download the file by clicking on the "Download" line and uploading it to the Istat website. Once the file is uploaded, click on "Continue". In this last step you can indicate whether the upload was successful or not.


PLEASE NOTE: this is your own note for personal reminder purpose, and not an official receipt from Istat.



Lastly by clicking on "Ok" you will see the summary of all successful uploads on the top right corner:



PLEASE NOTE: In case you do not mark that a report was successful, the next one may not be available or may contain errors!


Semi-automatic sending


In case semi-automatic mode is activated, in the Report page ZaK will automatically select the period for generating the Report. You just have to check that all guests have all data fulfilled (as indicated above) and possibly complete the missing ones or exclude some guests. You will now find a button "Send" which you can click to send the report to the Istat portal:




Automatic sending


You can activate the automatic sending through your Istat credentials. Each day, starting from the specified time in the plugin, the file is sent automatically (without downloading and submitting it inside Istat website).


On the top right of the page, in the "Last sends" section, you will see all successful reports.

It is a good practice, however, to access Istat portal and check results of the previous day's submission.
