30 August 2016
This article was first published in Romanian language on Hotnews.ro by Alexandru Mănucu, Tax Senior Consultant of Țuca Zbârcea & Asociații Tax One of the major tax implications of Brexit may apply to the income tax of British residents in Romania.

The Government Procurement Review 2016

25 August 2016
Reproduced with permission from Law Business Research Ltd. This article was first published in The Government Procurement Review, 4th edition (published in May 2016 – editors Jonathan Davey and Amy Gatenby). Public procurement contracts are essentially regulated by Government Emergency Ordinance No. 34/2006 on the award of public procurement contracts, public works concession contracts and service concession contracts (GEO No. 34/2006). Specific sector regulation and clarifications of GEO No. 34/2006 can be found in the secondary and tertiary legislation, consisting of government decisions and National Agency for Public Procurement (ANAP) (former National Authority for the Regulation and Monitoring of Public Procurement) orders. GEO No. 34/2006 transposes the EU legislation on public procurement and creates the legal framework to secure compliance with the principles of contract awarding in public procurement: non-discrimination, equal treatment, mutual recognition, transparency, proportionality, optimum use of funds and undertaking of liability.

Law No. 31/1990 on companies, republished in 2004 and further amended and completed (the Companies Law) and the Capital Market Law No. 297/2004, as further amended and completed (the Capital Market Law), represent the primary sources of law relating to the corporate governance of listed companies in Romania.

The Dispute Resolution Review 2016

02 April 2016
Reproduced with permission from Law Business Research Ltd. This article was first published in The Dispute Resolution Review - Edition 8 (published in February 2016 – editor Jonathan Cotton) Disputes in Romania are settled in court in the vast majority of cases, under procedures regulated mainly by the new Civil Procedure Code (CPC). Entered into force on 15 February 2013, the CPC accomplished a systemic and extensive overhaul of the Romanian dispute resolution model. With a specific focus on acceleration of trial proceedings, the new regulation has reformed both the schedule and the content of proceedings taking place in various phases of the lawsuit, while attempting to clarify many of the controversies raised by interpretable provisions in the former regulation. The system is designed to ensure a double-level jurisdiction, with local courts, tribunals or courts of appeal acting as first instances depending on the nature and value of the litigation, while the High Court of Cassation and Justice acts exclusively as a court of last resort, also settling requests for unification of practice.
