Romania VAT cut timeline
Romania confirm VAT cut timeline
There has been lots of changes with regards to how much the VAT cut would be for Romania and when the implementation would take place, suggested cuts have switched between 4% and 5% over the last year with debates seen for both cuts. However within the last few weeks the Romanian Government has announced that in 2016 the VAT rate will drop by 4% to 20% and then in 2017 it will fall a further 1% to 19%. The parties agreed on this after concerns were raised over the viability of such a big VAT cut, and it was felt best to lower it in stages after the IMF was opposed to a one stage 5% cut.
