Set up a construction company Romania

I am looking to start my own construction company in Romania and I wanted to know more about this type of company. What can you tell me?

Usually, construction companies in Romania are set either as a SRL ( limited liability company ) or SA (joint-stock company). In order to incorporate the company, you'll have to open a bank account for your new company in order to deposit the share capital.

The economic downturn in recent years has left Romania a great market for new construction companies, this industry being surpassed by the level of market demand. Thus, Romania is a promising economic environment for the establishment of construction companies, due to the fact that currently the demand exceeds the supply that construction companies can offer.

This field of activity is inexhaustible and is particularly profitable especially by contracting long-term collaboration with design and consultation companies, as often architects themselves nominate the construction company needed in order to implement the project.
