The changes brought by the year 2017
How to face the new challenges?
The year 2017 was a year of important changes, as once again the fiscal law changes represented a major topic, bringing new challenges for the business environment. Thus, one of the main changes brought to the Romanian Fiscal Code was the implementation of the European Directive 2016/1164 regarding the rules against tax avoidance practices (i.e. Anti - Tax Avoidance Directive – „ATAD”), that focuses on the operations undertaken by legal entities. On the other side, there will be significant changes at the level of the individuals as well, through the modification of the tax rates, as well as changes brought to the taxation mechanism of the social security contributions.
The legislative updates also cover fiscal procedure aspects, out of which: the interaction between the fiscal authorities and the tax payer within the administrative procedures, fiscal incentives and remedies provided by the Fiscal Procedure Code, enforcement of the administrative acts and the legal possibilities for suspending this procedure.
In addition to the above, the year 2017 may bring changes on the accounting side as well. More specifically, the changes refer to the inclusion within the national legislation of the new international financial reporting standards, IFRS 15 and IFRS 9, which will be mandatory for companies that apply IFRS in their statutory reporting.
Through this seminar we aim to achieve an analysis of the impact brought on by the new regulations, together with the challenges they can bring for your company.
