Romania e-Invoicing

Navigating Romania's e-Invoicing Landscape: Compliance Made Seamless

In a strategic move introduced by the Ministry of Finance and the National Financial Administration Agency, Romania unveiled its new e-Invoice system in 2020. December 17 saw the government's publication of EMERGENCY ORDINANCE no. 130, elucidating the framework for the e-invoice regime, drawing insights from Italy's established B2G and B2B e-Invoicing systems.

Embracing Digital Transformation

Evolution of the RO e-Invoice System

The rollout of Romania's e-Factura system, alongside the introduction of the SAF-T RO (standard audit file for tax) report obligation in January 2022, signifies a significant stride in digital tax reporting.

Comprehensive Transaction Integration

The new system encompasses both Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Government (B2G) transactions, initially integrated into the e-transfer system. This initiative aims primarily to combat tax fraud and smuggling, ensuring greater fiscal transparency.

Mandatory e-Invoicing: The Timeline

Mandatory Compliance for B2B Transactions

Effective January 2024, the generation of electronic invoices for B2B transactions becomes mandatory, encompassing all product categories, not limited solely to high-fiscal-risk products. Meanwhile, B2G transactions remain unrestricted in terms of product categories.

Submission Process for RO e-Factura

Taxpayers are required to access the RO e-Invoicing system before submission. Access is facilitated through the Virtual Private Space (SPV) webpage or via the shared API, ensuring seamless integration for commercial entities registered under their name or a designated legal representative.

Phased Implementation Timeline

  • Initial Phases: From April 1 to June 30, 2022, voluntary implementation was in effect. Obligatory compliance commenced on July 1, 2022, mandating e-invoices for B2B transactions involving high-risk products in XML format.
  • Expansion and Adaptation: Following EU commission approval, the obligation expanded to cover all product categories.
  • Transition Period: Between January 2024 to June 2024, an invoice reporting system model is proposed without penalties for non-compliance, enabling businesses to adapt smoothly.
  • Full Implementation: Commencing July 2024, mandatory e-Invoice transmission through the public SPV platform will function as a clearance model, encompassing both resident and non-resident VAT registered businesses.
