Starting on March 1, the Fiscal Antifraud General Directorate (ANAF) is empowered to suspend and seal off the work points of merchants that do not use fiscal cash registers or that do not offer sale slips for all goods and services offered. The sanctions will be taken against economic operators that: lack electronic cash registers purchased only from authorized distributors or licensed units; do not use the electronic cash registers; do not issue sale slips for all goods sold or services offered or issue sale slips whose values do not reflect the reality; do not draw up documents for the sums of money introduced/extracted in/from the cash register.
The sanctions stipulated by law for breaking these legal obligations consist of fine ranging from RON 10,000 to RON 15,000 and the suspension of the economic operator’s activity at the work place concerned for a period ranging from one to three months. When the unit is suspended the work place is sealed off by the control team and a note is placed, reading “Activity suspended by Antifraud – ANAF for failure to issue sale slips.” The unit will remain sealed throughout the suspension period.
The Fiscal Antifraud General Directorate will continue to verify the way the legal obligations on using electronic fiscal cash registers are respected, in order to improve voluntary fiscal conformity and to prevent tax evasion when it comes to retail trade and the offer of direct services to buyers.
