Accountants Romania - General Aspects

In agreement with general legal regulations, companies are requested to use double-entry accounting and it is a mandatory procedure to draw up annual financial statements. Our Romania accounting office is fully aware of all routine processes imposed by local authorities and we are continuously developing efficient approaches in order to meet the most rigorous expectations. The public institution in charge of drawing and issuing standards and regulations in this specific field is the Ministry of Public Finance.

Services provided by our accountants in Romania fully comply with regional stipulations and also with European standards, always delivering explicit information about all administrative procedures. As all Romania accounting firms assert, there are three major accounting ledgers declared as compulsory: journal ledger, inventory ledger and general ledger. Each type of ledger gradually reflects various aspects concerning financial operations, assets, liabilities and monthly records covering more specific concepts. All documents
referring to accounting matters must be stored at the company's headquarters.

Taxation in Romania and the main reporting obligations

Companies in Romania are subject to several taxes. Our team specializing in accounting in Romania lists some of these below for informative purposes:
  • 16%: the corporate income tax rate for Romanian companies; the branch tax rate has the same value, and so does the capital gains tax rate;
  • 5%: the withholding tax on dividends in case of non-resident companies; for resident companies, this withholding tax is 0%; the dividend withholding tax is increased starting with 2023, please see below;
  • 19%: the standard value of the value-added tax; two other rates of 5% and 9% apply in case of certain types of goods and services (for example, the 5% rate applies in case of hotel accommodation, restaurant, and catering services, medicines for human and veterinary use and others);
  • 2,25%: the social security contribution an employer is required to pay out of the total gross salary, per employee; a pension contribution of 4% pr 8% also applies in addition to the social security contribution.
The tax year in Romania is usually the same as the calendar year. Corporate income tax is due by the 25th day of the third month following the end of the tax year (for companies that follow a calendar year, this would be the 25th of March).

New fiscal changes entering into force in 2023

The Fiscal Code has been subject to several important amendments, and the changes will enter into force starting on January 1st, 2023.
Our Romanian accountants briefly list the most important changes below:
For micro companies:
  • the micro company can no longer be subject to the lower taxation regime of 3% on its turnover if it does not have any employees; the company will need to hire at least one employee and thus will be subject to the 1% tax on its turnover, a special regime for micro-companies;
  • the option micro-company will no longer be able to carry out consulting activities; our team can give you more details on the scope of this provision;
  • the dividend withholding tax increases from 5% to 8%; this is an important change that will impact small business owners.

Other changes for micro-companies will also concern their social security contributions, according to the amount of distributed dividends.

If the amount:
  • is between 6-12 salaries – social security contributions are paid at the calculation base of 6 salaries;
  • is between 12-24 minimum salaries – social security contributions are paid at the calculation base of 12 salaries,
  • is over 24 minimum salaries – social security contributions are paid at the calculation base of 24 salaries.

For the purpose of social security contributions, our team can provide foreign investors in Romania with clarifications concerning the CASS and the CAS contributions.
As seen above, micro-companies are a category that is subject to several important changes. Our team can provide you with additional information on this subject, and can help you comply with the latest fiscal changes if your chosen business form is a micro-company.
Self-employed individuals are also affected by the 2023 fiscal changes. Our accountants in Romania briefly list some of these changes below:
  • starting with 2023, the income threshold is changed from EUR100,000 to EUR 25,000; after this amount, the change of the taxation regime becomes mandatory;
  • self-employed individuals can be subject to an exemption from the payment of CAS, however, as listed above, the CASS contributions are mandatory and different according to income calculated as the number of minimum wages.
As part of the 2023 fiscal changes our team also mentions that the base minimum wage has been increased to RON 3,000, gross income (increased from 2,550 lei gross income).  However, an emergency ordinance issued by the Government also provides for a temporary salary tax exemption for the employer, meaning that 200 of the 3,000 lei are tax-exempt. Our team can give you more information about this important change if you run a business in Romania and hire employees.
The latest fiscal changes can prompt business owners to rethink the way in which they do business. One solution can be to change the existing business form, especially in the case of sole traders (PFA) who estimate that they will earn more than the new prescribed income threshold.
Changing the business form is possible, however, this is a decision to be made only after taking into account different aspects and after proper consultation with a team of accounting and company formation experts such as our own.
Our team can give you more details about the 2023 fiscal changes, the new applicable taxes, and your options if you are considering making important changes to your business form.
The principles of accounting in Romania as well as those for taxation have been subject to changes, especially in the context of the 2020 special provisions for the filing dates, as part of the support measures offered by the authorities for companies with financial difficulties.
