Individuals who earn income from self-employed activities can submit the Unified Tax Statement online starting today, which will automatically work out how much each person will have to pay in income tax and social contributions.
The Unified Tax Statement can be accessed on the Fiscal Authority (ANAF)’s website, on which taxpayers can register with the data received via post from the Finance Ministry. The Private Virtual Space will provide information on personal fiscal status and it will support the online submission of a series of fiscal statements and other useful fiscal information.
Finance minister Eugen Teodorovici said that he aims to encourage the reduction of bureaucracy and a move towards online instead of paper documents.
If the Unified Tax Statement is submitted online by July 15, 2018 and the payment of dues is made in full until March 15, 2019, a 5 percent discount is applied. Furthermore, if the taxes estimated for 2018 are paid in full by December 15, 2018, an extra discount of 5 percent is applied.
Health and pension contributions will be optional for some taxpayers using the Unified Tax Statement – read more here.
