The legal framework regulating the registration and operation of representative offices of foreign economic entities was aligned to the economic and digital reality by the Ordinance of the Government no. 18/2022, published in the Official Gazette no. 799 of August 4, 2022.
This is the first time the Romanian legislation regulating representative offices, enacted in 1990, is amended – a most welcomed update of procedures in this field, including the electronic platform to be used for registration.
For the record, the representative office of a foreign entity in Romania is a structure lacking legal personality, acting as an intermediary between the parent company and its contractual partners based in Romania. The performance of the representative office, in the name of the foreign company, is limited to legal deeds and activities required for its own operation in Romania (promoting and advertising, representation, marketing, follow up of contracts, etc.) and shall not exceed the scope of business set under the operating permit.
