Transporters accuse Gov’t of random fuel price calculation

Premier Emil Boc has passed a government resolution allowing fuel prices to go up after it scrapped some Tax Code implementation norms and leaving the end-price of fuels up to the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF) and distributors, according to a Romanian Road Haulers Association release sent to “Nine O’Clock.” Despite the European legislation containing no provisions on making a member state raise the excise charged on biofuels, and fuels implicitly, Romania’s government thought that, since domestic economy has bounced back, the time is right to revise up fuel prices, again, the document reads.

The content of Gov’t Resolution no 150/2011 raises at least two issues: it runs against the stipulations in art. 206, paragraph 3 of the Tax Code, and fails providing any insight on how excises are calculated for biofuel-containing motor fuel. At the same time, it eliminates the details in previous normative acts, changes Tax Code stipulations, suggesting that the excise charged on biofuels that are mandatory part of motor fuels has a value similar to that of the excise on basic fuels.
