As a consequence, there were modified the criteria underlying the registration for VAT purposes, motivated by the fact stated by ANAF representatives, namely that “it is limited the access on the market for the companies with escapist behavior, and for the persons involved in networks of fraud or with a previous fiscal behavior contrary to the law. “

Among the criteria underlying the rejection of an application for registration for VAT purposes, is also  the one that the Director of the company has been, or is an associate or an administrator in a Company with a high fiscal risk, as declared by the representatives of ANAF :

“Failure to fulfill a cumulative criteria, ranks the applicant in high or medium risk group, which leads to the direct elimination (high risk) or attending an interview with the representatives of ANAF (medium risk) to provide the necessary clarifications. Among the most important criteria, whose non-fulfillment leads to the denial of registration for VAT purposes can be exemplified: holding, currently or in the past by the administrator who applies for registration for VAT purposes, the position of associate or manager in companies with high fiscal risk (with unpaid tax obligations; which were declared inactive by the IRS, without being subsequently reactivated, are temporarily inactive in the trade register; liquidated or struck), but also the instability of the headquarters “.
