 Set up Branch
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.

Setting up Representative Office in Romania

by Vlad Cuc

Q: Are there any special requirements for creating a Romanian Representative Office ("Reprezentanta")?

A Romanian Representative Office is a structure entirely different from a Romanian Branch or Subsidiary. This type of entity is not independent from the parent-company and has certain important limitations: it cannot produce goods or provide services. The only purpose of the Romanian Representative Office is to intermediate business relations between the parent-company and its Romanian clients. In practice this type of structure is mainly used for marketing services.

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

The Romanian Representative Office does not have its own patrimony and share capital.

Q: How much does it cost to create a Romanian Representative Office?

It is important to note that the Romanian Representative Office is not registered through the Trade Register (like the Branch and Subsidiary) but rather through The Ministry of Economy and Commerce. The Representative Office has a flat incorporation tax and a flat corporate tax regardless of its activity in Romania. Other incorporation fees are rather similar to branches and subsidiaries.

Q: What documents are required for the setup of a Representative Office in Romania?

Documents will include Certificate of Registration and Trade Register Extract of the parent-company, Bank Letter, Resolution and Articles of Association, Specimen Signature and Affidavit for the Romanian representative as well as a Power of Attorney if the procedure is going to be completed without a personal visit to Romania.
