Government will amend ordinance 58/2010 on the payment of social contributions corresponding to intellectual property activities. The amendments shall first receive the nod from the Economic and Social Council, Environment Minister Laszlo Borbely told Agerpres yesterday. He made the point it was Fin Min Sebastian Vladescu who came up with the changes, first read at Wednesday’s government session. Minister Borbely made the point the changes refer to the employer, and not the employee, going to submit the social contribution statements on intellectual property and other self-employed activities. Ordinance 58/201 sparked a heated controversy after thousands of people stood in endless lines to pay their contributions last week.
