Abstract

The difficult period which Romania crosses as of 2008 determined the public authorities to adopt new fiscal measures with the purpose, among other, to collect more revenue to the state budget. However, these regulations (mainly those concerning the lump sum tax and the minimal tax) had a strong adverse impact on the private sector; many companies closed down or adopted a less honest behaviour, as most of them did, by avoiding paying the taxes, tax evasion. The paper analyses the impact of the lump sum tax and the minimal tax on the SMEs, showing the advantages and disadvantages of their application, opinions from EU members and proposals to support the business medium, to improve the financial situation of the economic agents.
