Recovering Your Romanian Investment

Companies have been formed in the past for many reasons in Romania. Over the past few years the Romanian Trade Registry has endeavoured to clean up the number of Romanian dormant or non-trading companies which had been set up in the first flush of a free trade economy as shown on the register. In many [...]

Have You forgotten About Your Romanian Investment?

During the last period we have received enquiries concerning property transactions and property led transactions all of which arose out of property purchases prior to 2009. Many investors both foreign and local made purchases during those times which they now regret.  The reasons for this regret are many but they now have to deal with [...]

Contract Negotiating Romanian Style Part 1

I was recently reading about negotiations in China and how you need to have great patience and understanding.  I brought to mind the situation in Romania when I first came here in 1990.  The situation was not very different then to the Chinese experience.  But what has changed, or has indeed anything changed since those [...]

Closing a company in Romania

As part of the natural order of commercial life there may come a time when it is necessary to close and liquidate a company in Romania.

Are you a Director or a Manager?

Language is a great thing except when you are talking to someone who is not a native speaker of the language and as a partner in a Romanian law firm I am well aware of this. Ask my staff! Last week we talked about confusion in property law that we as lawyers in Romania  experience [...]

Can I use my usual contract?

There are in the main two types of foreign investors in the Romanian economy.

By that I mean people who carry on business in Romania but do not have an office [...]

Influence Peddling under Romanian Law

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is regarding corruption and influence peddling in Romania and how this is dealt with under Romanian law. Unfortunately, Romania does figure in a number of corruption indices and in a high position. The question that is being asked is why, and how does it affect business. [...]

Enhanced debt recovery in Romania

Debt recovery in Romania has caused problems for foreign investors over many years.  I would estimate that questions concerning debt recovery are the third most common request that we receive.  Recoveries of debts in Central Europe including Romania were a byword for Byzantium thinking.  One hears of cases that have been running for at least [...]

They have done it again

One of the quirks of Romanian legislation incorporated in the Constitution is the use of Emergency Ordinances.  The intention originally was for them to be used when Parliament was not sitting and allowed the Government to pass "emergency" legislation which would then be ratified by Parliament later when they were in sitting. Over the last 20 [...]

Treaty Obligations Broken?

The Romanian Finance Authorities are a law unto themselves. This is no more apparent than in the field of the prevention of Double Taxation.  Treaty obligations do not necessarily apply in all cases and my comments below deal only to payments made to companies based in the EU. We are often asked by clients why [...]
