Understanding the non-profit sector in Romania

To start with, Romania has a dynamic non-profit sector, composed of organisations that play a key role in solving social problems and promoting public welfare. Non-profit organisations in Romania cover a wide range of sectors, including education, health care, environmental conservation, culture, and many others. Before embarking on the creation of your non-profit organization, it is essential to understand the unique landscape, legal framework and regulatory obligations that govern this sector in Romania.

Choosing the right legal structure for your non-profit organization

Choosing the right legal structure is a crucial step in the creation of your non-profit organisation in Romania. The two main options are the Association and the Foundation. Associations are more suitable for membership-based organizations, while foundations are ideal for organizations with a specific goal and long-term goals. Consult with legal experts at Pavel, Margarit & Associates to determine the most appropriate legal structure for your non-profit organization.

Drafting and registration of the statutes of the non-profit organisation

The articles are the governing document for your non-profit organization. They specify the purpose of the organization, its activities, governance structure and internal regulations. When drafting the statutes, it is crucial to ensure that they comply with Romanian laws and regulations governing non-profit organisations. Seek legal advice from our experts to ensure that your articles are consistent with your organizations requirements and objectives.

Obtaining legal recognition and tax exemptions

To benefit from the advantages and privileges of a non-profit organisation in Romania, it is essential to obtain legal recognition. This involves registering your organisation with the competent authorities, such as the National Office for the Registration of Associations and Foundations. In addition, applying for tax exemptions is essential to maximize the resources available for your organizations mission. Our team at Pavel, Margarit & Associates Romanian Law Firm can guide you through the application process and help you navigate the complexities of tax exemptions for not-for-profit organizations.

Development of a fundraising and fundraising strategy

Developing a comprehensive fundraising strategy is key to attracting support from donors and sponsors. From traditional fundraising methods to the use of digital platforms and crowdfunding, our team can provide valuable information and legal advice to help you create an effective fundraising strategy that complies with Romanian laws and regulations.

Compliance with reporting and governance obligations

As a not-for-profit organization, you have certain reporting and governance obligations.
