Although Romania is not a typical jurisdiction for the formation of companies, EU membership certainly makes certain countries more attractive. The Romanian banking system is quite stable, and an EU tax number can be obtained easily during the registration process with the Romanian tax authorities. In tax planning, however, it should not be forgotten that the tax is 16 + 16%! That’s 16% corporation tax and 16% withholding tax on dividends paid to foreigners (naturally, in certain situations agreements for the avoidance of double taxation as well as the EU parent-subsidiary directive offer more attractive possibilities).
