Accounting Implications of Taxation


  • Paliu-Popa, Lucia
  • Ecobici, Nicolae


Romania's accession to the European Union required a series of changes in the fiscal legislation in order to harmonize it with the Community Regulations; the value-added tax, the new introduced concepts or mechanism being especially regarded at this indirect tax level, with the function to accelerate the implementation of the European Directives. The changes made have a partial influence on how the fiscal liabilities are reflected in accounting, the latter representing in the same time a privileged source of information for the fiscal bodies. We shall present in this paper the implications of taxation on accounting, dwelling on the simplification measures provided for in Law no. 571/2003 concerning the Fiscal Code (Article 160), the reverse charge and self-liquidation of the value-added tax. For this purpose we shall approach the reverse charge evolution in our country, the method of documents drawing up, imposed by the fiscal regulations, the reflection in accounting of operations regarding deliveries of goods or supplies of services to which simplification measures are applied, both on the supplier/performer’s side and on the beneficiary's side, and also the advantages and disadvantages of these fiscal regulations.
