E-invoicing requirements in Romania

Legal obligations

Central, regional and local authorities in Romania are legally required to receive and process e-invoices from businesses. For suppliers of public bodies only submitting is mandatory.

As of 1 July 2024 exchanging e-invoices will become mandatory for all Romanian businesses. In addition, digital tax reporting is required as of 1 January 2024 by submitting e-invoices to the central Romanian platform e-Factura.

 

Options for sending e-invoices to Romania

The Romanian ANAF (National Fiscal Administration Agency) has created the platform e-Factura for invoice exchange with the government and Business-to-Business transactions. The use of e-Factura is mandatory.

All invoices must be submitted in the RO_CIUS format, the Romanian XML standard. You can submit an invoice via the online form and generate an XML or convert your XML into a PDF.

A platform like Billit, however, connects directly to the ANAF and submits your invoices in the correct format. This means you can safely send your e-invoices to the Romanian government and to your customers. You can also receive e-invoices in the same platform.

Creating a Billit account and sending your first e-invoice only takes a few minutes.
