Taxation of international executives
The Romanian taxation of individuals depends upon their residence status. Generally, Romanian tax residents are liable to Romanian tax on their worldwide income, whereas non-Romanian tax residents are liable to Romanian tax on their Romanian-source income. This includes income received for services performed on Romanian territory. For the year 2018, the personal income tax rate is 10 percent (flat tax rate). Married individuals are taxed separately from their spouses.
The official currency of Romania is the Romanian Leu (RON).
