Tax system for Ukrainians in Romania

Reading time: 3 min.

In the world of globalization and international mobility, as well as modern conditions, Ukrainians often choose work or study opportunities abroad.

Romania has become one of the most popular countries for Ukrainians. However, with moving comes the issue of taxation.

So let's consider the main aspects of the taxation system for Ukrainians living and working in Romania.

First of all, tax residency is important for determining tax liability in Romania.

A person who stays in the country for at least 183 days in a calendar year is considered a tax resident of Romania.

If a person is not a tax resident of Romania, he pays tax only on the income received in Romania.

Legal status and taxation of the workplace

Ukrainians working in Romania should understand their legal status and duties in the field of taxation. This includes registering for work, choosing a form of employment (employment, self-employment), and income tax obligations.

One of the main aspects of the taxation system is the personal income tax. The article will consider the rates of this tax, as well as the specifics of its payment for foreigners working in Romania.

Ukrainians should also be familiar with the social insurance system and pension payments in Romania. This is important for understanding the general social infrastructure and ensuring your social protection in the host country.

The main tax rates in Romania are as follows:

  • Personal income tax (Impozitul pe venitul din salarii și pensii) - progressive rate from 10 to 55%.
  • Value-added tax (TVA) - a single rate of 19%.
