e-Invoicing in Romania
Characteristics of electronic invoicing in Romania
The European Commission has published the official authorization for Romania to implement mandatory B2B e-invoicing as of January 1, 2024. The implementation of electronic invoicing between companies will not be done gradually but will be mandatory for all companies as of January 2024 (pending confirmation by the Romanian authorities).
The central platform RO e-Factura has been available since November 2021 both for invoice exchange with public administrations (B2G) and between private companies (B2B).
The Ministry of Finance applies its electronic signature after validating each invoice.
The implementation of electronic invoicing between companies is expected to be mandatory for all companies as of January 2024 (pending confirmation by the Romanian authorities).
However, e-Invoicing is mandatory as of July 1, 2022, for products that are considered high tax risk. The product categories are as follows: fruit and vegetables, alcoholic beverages, new construction, mineral products, clothing, and footwear.
At the B2G level, electronic invoicing is mandatory with all public administrations in the country as of July 1, 2022.
Currently, to use the RO e-Invoice platform, both the issuer and the recipient of the invoices must be registered in it. Taxpayers with the obligation to process their invoices in RO E-Factura will have to use the system regardless of whether the recipients (receivers) are registered.
The platform stores electronic invoices for 60 days. Both the sender and receiver are obliged to store their issued and received invoices for at least 10 years.
