VPO electronic payment in Romania

January 2009 - TMT ( Technology, Media & Telecoms). Legal Developments by bpv GRIGORESCU.

More articles by this firm.

The electronic payment of taxes is a relatively new and unknown opportunity for most citizens in Romania. Hence, as per the president of the Agency for Services of the Informational Society, dated September 2008, "although in Romania over 6 million persons have internet access and the banks have issued almost 10 million cards, the citizens still prefer the queues in front of the offices for the payment of taxes to public institutions and very few of them use the existing payment instruments".

The electronic payment of taxes represents a component of the concept of electronic government ("e-government"). This concept is regulated under Law no. 161/2003 regarding transparency in the administration of information and public service and it is put into practice by means of a special electronic system of national utility ("National Electronic System").

The emerging Romanian market economy is more and more consistent and observant of the rules applicable internationally with regard to business relationships, but one peculiar issue is still the marker of this country’s recent history: acquiring ownership in private real estate property requires a specific standard of diligence and sometimes it is not possible to completely rule out all risks related to the ownership title.

Current issues concerning Real Estate leasing structures in Romania

June 2008 - Real Estate & Property. Legal Developments by bpv GRIGORESCU.

More articles by this firm.

The framework for real estate leasing was created already in 1997 by Ordinance No. 51/1997 (the so-called Leasing Law) concerning leasing transactions and leasing companies. Still, real estate leasing transactions started to pick-up ground only in the past two years. One reason could be continuous amendment of the taxation treatment applicable to leasing transactions, as well as the implementation of new rules governing leasing companies and the leasing business.
