Although Romania is the EU country with the least number of employees working on the basis of telework, the situation could soon change thanks to state support through the new tax regulations.
The December amendment of the Law 227/2015 – the Tax Code, provides that the list of non-taxable income is supplemented by the amounts granted to employees operating on the basis of telework in order to cover service expenses at the place where the employees are active, such as electricity, heating, water and data subscription, and the purchase of office furniture and equipment up to 400 lei per month.
We propose to look into some important aspects of the application of this regulation.
For the sake of clarity, transparency in the case of ANAF controls and ease of implementation, we recommend that companies that have employees working on telework agreements and want to grant such facilities, lay down in the internal rules the maximum amount that may be granted, the criteria for granting the aid and the rules for payment of the aid.
We are tempted to believe that teleworking will become normal for Romania even after the health crisis caused by the pandemic that we are experiencing, and employers will be encouraged to find solutions to get as many employees as possible into this scheme of work.
