Uncertainty regarding the tax rate for micro-enterprises in 2010

The Government Ordinance amending the Tax Code which will apply from January 1, 2010 has been adopted and does not contain any provision on the reduced tax of 3%.

According to the Tax Code for 2010, published by the National Tax Administration Agency, micro-enterprises will pay from January 1, 2010 an income or profit tax of 16%, as the reduced income tax of 3% applies only until 31 December 2009, as indicated in the Article 107 of the Tax Code:

“The tax rate on micro-enterprise's income is 2% in 2007, 2.5% in 2008, 3% in 2009”.

The Finance Ministry has expressed its intention of not changing the tax rate of 3% for micro-enterprises, with the possibility of extending its application for a further year. These are only expressed opinions, as there is no legislation in this regard till today.

If this tax rate will disappear, all the advantages that firms bearing the status of micro-enterprises benefited from, will be abolished from 2010.

The conditions that a company must fulfill in order to qualify for the status of micro-enterprise are: the company must have revenues of not more than 100,000 euros during a fiscal year, obtained from activities other than consultancy and management services in amount of over 50%. Also, it should employ not less than one and not more than nine employees.
