In this issue:

The set of measures taken by the National Agency for Fiscal Administration, given the difficult economic context caused by the spread of the infection with COVID-19 virus


During this period, given the difficult economic context caused by the spread of the infection with COVID-19 virus, the National Agency for Fiscal Administration has prepared a set of measures to support the business environment, the most important being:

- suspension or, as the case may be, non-commencement of the forced execution of the budgetary debts (with certain exceptions);

- VAT reimbursement, during March, for all settled returns and for which reimbursement decisions have been issued;

- implementation of a new VAT refund mechanism, intended to speed up the settlement of VAT returns, starting with the 1st of April 2020;

- suspending tax audits (tax inspections, anti-fraud controls), except for checks that may be performed remotely, as well as tax evasion cases, where there are indications in this regard;


The measures will be applied during the period in which Romania has declared a state of emergency and for a period of 30 days from the end of this state.

At the same time, the deadline for filing tax returns is postponed from 25 March 2020 to 25 April 2020.
