on the Romania forum:
Hello, I was wondering what are the most common legal issues you can come by, as an expat, in Romania.
All of your legal documents, such as your birth certificate, etc, need to be translated into Romanian. Depending on the city your looking to relocate to, translation and notary services are readily available

replied to the thread Income Tax exemption for expat
on the Romania forum:
I am an Indian National considering a permanent move to Bucharest.
I have a degree in Information Systems
My Question is since Information Systems is an exempted category in Romania under Income Tax, will I be eligible for this exemption?
Thanks in advance...
You are right, the government did pass a resolution last year, indicating that several categories of people working in IT would be tax exempt. This refers to just the 16% income tax, which is separate from other taxes paid in Romania, such as health insurance and social security.
There's a whole lot of legislation to navigate through (you can see a list of conditions here, albeit in Romanian, http://www.monitorulcj.ro/economie/38410-scutire-impozit-salarii-programatori#sthash.bDVaac58.dpbs ) so I would suggest discussing this with your employer and see if it's applicable to you as well.
All the best!
Mr . Invincible,
Where did you get the information that people working in "Information Systems" in Romania would be "tax exempt" ?
If you have a contract specifying a certain salary ( and no tax !) in fact your contract shows your pay, "after taxes".
Any government, anywhere in the world will want to tax those who are gainfully employed. Your employer will pay a certain portion from your salary as "tax" and give you the rest as "no tax salary".
Inthe end this is an issue you'd better discuss with your prospective employer.
In so far as your wife you will need a "work visa" for her, in order to be able to work in Romania.
Hope this helps.
