Romania: VAT refund

In the framework of the monthly published decisions regarding the violation of the community obligations, the European Commission requests Romania to change its practice regarding the VAT refund procedure.
According to the Romanian legislation, the term for the VAT refund is of 45 days. For the period exceeding this legal term, the taxpayers have the right to request interest for the delay in refunding.

The European Commission draws attention to the fact that almost all refund requests are dealt with unjustified delays which sometimes are exceeding even 180 days. This practice is not in line with European Union rules, which provide that the VAT needs to be reimbursed quickly so that it will not be a burden for the taxpayers.

At this stage, Romania needs to respond to the European Commission within two months explaining the reasons why these delays in reimbursing the VAT occur. If Romania fails to offer a conclusive response within this deadline, the Commission can turn to the European Court of Justice to remedy the situation. Alessandro Pasut
