A Romanian branch (called a "Sucursala") is an entity without its own legal personality. This means that it does not have its own patrimony apart from the parent-company. It is registered however in a similar manner with the Romanian Subsidiary and with the same public institution, namely the Trade Register.

 Set up Subsidiary
The Romanian Subsidiary (called a "Filiala") has the status of any regular Romanian SRL (Limited Liability Company). The only difference is that the parent company is the only or majority shareholder in the company. This type of structure does not imply a different incorporation procedure other than any other Romanian SRL.

Creating a Branch in Romania

by Vlad Cuc

Q: Are there any special requirements for creating a Romanian Branch ("Sucursala")?

A Romanian Branch is setup in a manner similar to any Romanian company. There are nevertheless certain specifics, namely: the Romanian Branch does not have its own patrimony, its own share capital, therefore the parent-company is liable with its own share capital registered abroad. There is also an important note related to the filed accounts: each year, besides the accounts for the branch, the yearly accounts of the parent-company must be filed with the Romanian Trade Register.

Q: What is the minimum share capital of a Romanian Branch?

The Romanian Sucursala Branch does not have its own share capital therefore there is no capital to deposit.
