(120 votes)

The transfer pricing documentation file must be submitted by March 25th, 2017, which is the deadline for filing the corporate tax return, or by the deadline set for companies that apply any tax year other than the calendar year.
The file has to be prepared and presented according to ANAF Order No. 442/2016 on the amount of transactions, submission deadlines for the transfer pricing documentation file, the content and conditions of requesting the preparation of a transfer pricing documentation file, and the transfer pricing adjustment/estimation procedure.
It is important to note that the interpretation of this Order by tax authorities is that, in case of a tax audit, if the file is requested for the past three years, companies must update the file according to the Order for the entire audited period, which is basically a retroactive application of the document. With audited companies, the deadline for meeting legal requirements is usually 30 to 60 days.

According to the New Romanian Tax Code, as of January 1st, 2016, income obtained from activities performed based on civil-law contracts/agreements, concluded in accordance with the Civil Code, as well as based on agent contracts, are excluded from the category of income from independent activities for which the income tax representing anticipated payments is withheld at source.

Under such conditions, the sole legal basis for income obtained under civil-law contracts/agreements to be integrated may be article 114 para. (2) g) of the Tax Code, which defines income from other sources as the income obtained by taxpayers that are not registered from a tax point of view and perform an occasional activity, although the law is not very clear in this respect.

A. Distraint and sale of shares

Pursuant to changes set forth in Law no. 152/2015 amending and supplementing specific normative acts on registrations in the Trade Registry, now the creditors of a shareholder have the possibility to put distraint on and sell the shares of their debtor. Therefore, the opposability of the garnishment and the distraint shall be registered with the Trade Registry, at the request of the foreclosure body.

Previously, such possibility was duly regulated for joint stock companies only. In case of a limited liability company, the creditors were able to exercise their rights over the part of benefits due to the shareholder debtor either after the closing of the financial year, or after the liquidation process, in case the company is dissolved. Therefore, the only possibility to foreclose the shares granted to the shareholder’s creditors was the garnishment of the shares that were due following the liquidation process. In other words, the creditors of the shareholder debtor used to enforce the garnishment over a receivable affected by the prior condition of the dissolution and liquidation of the limited liability company.
