Italian term or phrase: uffici senza rappresentanza
"L'Organo Amministrativo ha facoltà di istituire e di sopprimere unità locali operative (filiali, uffici senza rappresentanza ed agenzie in Italia ed all'estero), ovvero di trasferire la sede sociale nell'ambito del Comune sopra indicato, spettando invece ai soci decidere il trasferimento della sede in Comune diverso da quello sopra indicato."

I'm unsure what kind of office this might be. Any ideas?

representative offices

These are offices which are set up, normally in foreign countries, for the purposes of marketing and non-operational activities, i.e. the office has no power to enter into agreements, for example sales, in the name of the company, i.e. it has no powers of representation to act on behalf of the company. Representative offices are normally set up in places where a branch or subsidiary is unwarranted.

When I worked for an international law firm in Milan, I set up two of these offices, one in London and the other in Ukraine, so I know, I know what I'm talking about.

neutral  philgoddard: "Uffici di rappresentanza" would make perfect sense, but it says "senza", which gets no hits. I wonder if that could be a mistake.
