Any enterprise is willing to get a higher profit and when taxation is low and when this is higher. As a manager, you do not justify your presence in the top, if you do not want to maximize your business opportunities, and get as much as possible. Therefore, the new lump-sum tax introduced by means of the Government Emergency Ordinance no. 34/2009, from our point of view, it directly acts over the firms’ financing. The Government Emergency Ordinance no.34/ 2009 concerning the introduction of the lumpsum tax in Romania, the measures that restrict and remove costs that can be deductible in a firm’s accounting, as well as those related to the rise of the tax to be paid by microenterprises caused strong debates in the business environment, especially within small businessmen. Financiers could not mention how long the firms would pay the lump-sum tax, because according to economic forecasts, many of them will not succeed to outrun the crisis and forecast a gloomy period for Romania, especially when, according to deadlines in the ordinance, many measures will be maintained up to the end of the next year, that obviously indicates the date when the state authorities expect a modification of the situation.
