We remind investors that several issues need to be taken consideration for company formation purposes in Romania. These are choosing the NACE codes (or CAEN in Romanian) and establishing the registered address of the company – a mandatory step that needs to be handled in the pre-registration phase in order to be able to complete the Trade Register formalities.
The NACE codes are the ones that refer to the company’s primary activity. Each new business is required to assign a code for a primary activity and as many other codes for secondary ones. It is recommended draw up the business plan and assign as many additional codes as it can be foreseen for the future evolution of the company. It is advisable to do so because any other code addition or changes after registration will involve other submissions and document preparation for the Trade Register. If companies do however need to make subsequent changes, the one of our Romania lawyers can provide the needed assistance.
Choosing a registered address for the company is required as this information is mandatory when preparing the registration documents and when registering the business. The address is included in the company’s Articles of Association, however, it does not need to be the same as the company’s headquarters. This can be another address, as decided by the founders or as per the needs of the business. Like the NACE codes, the registered address can be modified after registration, however it will also imply a notification and a formal request for change that is to be lodged with the Trade Register.
