I'm an employee

Which income will be taxed in Romania

  • Resident in Romania? (your life is centred there or you live there for min. 183 consecutive days over 12 months) You must pay tax on your worldwide income there.

    If you continue to remain a resident of your country of origin, you will have to prove this by means of a tax residence certificate issued by the competent authority of that state.
  • Not resident in Romania? You only pay tax on income earned there.

  • Income from other EU countries? Check you never pay tax twice on the same income.

How much will you pay?

  • If your employer is a resident of Romania, it must calculate, deduct and pay your earned income tax. Your income will be taxed at a flat rate of 16%, and the tax will be final. You don't have to submit a tax return.
  • If your employer resides outside Romania, but pursues activities in Romania for more than 183 days, you will have to calculate and pay your earned income tax monthly, as well as submit the relevant tax return. In calculating your taxable income, take account of any deductions you are entitled to.

Your income will be taxed at a flat rate of 16%, and the tax will be final.

How and when do you pay?

If the second case applies to you (and therefore you must calculate and pay the tax yourself), you must fill in and submit your tax return by the 25th of following month. You should submit this to the local tax authority, in person or through an authorised person.
