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.

Representative Office is not registered through the Trade Register (like the
Branch and Subsidiary) but rather through The Ministry of Economy and

corporate tax regardless of its activity in Romania. Other incorporation
fees are rather similar to branches and subsidiaries.

of a Representative Office in Romania?
Documents will include Certificate of Registration and Trade

going to be completed without a personal visit to Romania.
