New rules on the registration procedure for value added tax purposesKreston Romania
The registration for VAT purposes of the taxpayers with the headquarters of the economic activity in Romania, if they carry out or intend to carry out taxable operations, is done in the following situations:
- before carrying out the operations, if the taxpayer declares that he is going to achieve a turnover of at least RON 300,000 or if he declares that he is going to achieve a turnover under this ceiling, but he opts for the normal VAT regime. The registration will be done through the form 098;
- in ten days from the end of the month in which a turnover of at least RON 300,000 is reached, if this happens during the calendar year. The registration will be done through the statement of mentions;
- when opting for the normal VAT regime, if the turnover achieved during a calendar year is below RON 300,000.
The registration for VAT purposes is considered valid starting with the date of communication of the registration certificate or starting with the first day of the month following the one in which the VAT code was requested.
NAFA can no longer do the tax analysis of taxpayers to decide whether to approve or reject the request for granting the VAT code, so there will be cases in which the authorities will cancel the VAT code as soon as it grants it.
If the person who made the request is not fiscally inactive, then the authorities check whether it falls into the situations that allow the cancellation of registration for VAT purposes. At the same time, it is verified if the respective person or the associates/administrators have in the fiscal record the attraction of the joint and several liability with the debtor.
