The companies that have a valid Romanian VAT ID number (in Romania are subject to VAT) no longer have to make an entry in the register of intra-Community operators (ROI). The Romanian VAT ID no. is automatically valid in the EU’s intra-Community trade in goods and services.
The extremely complex preparation of form 088 for registration as a company subject to VAT is no longer necessary.

Conclusion: these are particularly good and important changes. They eliminate a lot of red tape and unnecessary expenses.
