Is 2013 a lucky year for the Romanian taxation?

Breaking with the tradition of the last few years, the Executive no longer issued an ordinance in late December of 2012 to amend the Tax Code, offering accountants and tax consultants the unexpected opportunity to spend winter holidays in peace, without having to study last year’s issue of The Official Journal of Romania (Monitorul Oficial al Romaniei).

However, our officials seem to have done so for a simpler reason rather than for a greater care, uncovered on the spur of the moment, for this category of professionals: the amending legal provisions, the same as other regulations of high priority, had not yet been finalised, of which I should mention the State Budget Law and the State Social Security Law.
 
 
 
What happened in early 2013 is quite memorable, as the succession of events may be an example worthy of being written down in law books on the manner in which decision-making transparency may be simulated in the tax field!  Specifically, the events succeeded as follows:
 
 
  •  Monday morning, the 21st of January, the draft Government Ordinance is displayed on the Webpage of the Ministry of Public Finance;
  •  The same day, at 18.00 hours, the Social Dialogue Commission holds its meeting to discuss a list of 26 bills on various legislative changes (including amendments to the Tax Code);
  •  Wednesday, the 23rd of January, Monitorul Oficial No 54 publishes Government Ordinance No 8/2013 amending and supplementing the Tax Code.
  •  
It is quite obvious that the result could be only one: errors were identified in the hastily adopted regulations, some of which being corrected under other legislative acts, while others being still to be remedied in the ensuing period.
 
 
Generally, we may say that the Romanian tax legislation continues to show deficits inasmuch as long-term vision and strategy are concerned.  Yet, as a Romanian saying goes, hope dies last.
