“SOS” letters sent by business community to state institutions: Reform ANAF!

de Victor Bratu , 18.2.2018

The member organizations of the Coalition for Romania’s Development (CDR) urge the Government that the reform of ANAF should become one of the “top” priorities of the Romanian state.

As the institution “does not have the internal drive to modernize,” the CDR sent letters to the most important state institutions – the Government, the Parliament, the Presidency – letters calling for “political support from the highest level” for the modernization of the tax authority.

CDR also tells decision-makers that ANAF’s reform project, implemented by the Ministry of Finance with the World Bank, must be successfully completed.

The reaction of the Coalition for Romania’s Development occurs a few days after the World Bank published the tenth revision of the project, stating: “The project stalled after the first stage of the acquisition of the revenue management system, around October 2017. Since then no further initiatives have moved forward due to weak political commitment to reforms.

In the letter sent to Deputy Prime Minister Viorel Stefan and the Minister of Finance, Eugen Teodorovici, CDR says:

“First of all, we take the opportunity of this letter to wish you be successful in your mandate and achieve everything you have planned.

The Coalition for Romania’s Development Romanian (CDR) and the organizations they represent are always at your disposal when you consider it is useful to consult the Romanian business community. In this context, we invite you to a meeting to discuss an important priority for the business environment. It is about the modernization and digitization of the Romanian tax administration. It is also one of the priorities defined and identified in the government program approved by the Parliament at the investiture of your government.

We would like to underline the hopes of the organizations that the CDR represents that program for reforming ANAF, implemented in partnership with the World Bank, will be finalized and implemented. In the context of ANAF’s efforts to improve tax collection and the common objective of reducing tax evasion, we are confident that completing RAMP is the most effective way.

ANAF’s modernization would help taxpayers and give the state the tools it needs to increase collection and fight tax evasion.

We believe that ANAF does not have now the internal drive to modernize. That is why it needs political support from the highest level and, at the same time, needs to continue this project with the World Bank that already went through important stages.

Considering the recent experience and the need to improve the relationship between ANAF and taxpayers, the CDR plans to publicly communicate in the coming period the need to reform and modernize the tax administration.

We will be at your disposal in the coming period for a meeting on this topic.

Similar letters have been sent to the Presidents of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies, the Chairs of the Finance Budget Committees, the presidents of the parliamentary parties, the Presidency, the World Bank, the European Commission and the IMF.”
