published on 19 October 2021 | reading time approx. 1 minute


As part of its digital transformation strategy, the Romanian tax authorities (ANAF) have announced that the OECD 2.0. SAF-T system will be implemented in Romania. Although the go-live date was planned to take place at 1 August 2021, the deadline was postponed until 1 January 2022.





Based on the SAF-T Guidebook published by the Romanian tax authorities, starting with 1 January 2022, uploading of the SAF-T statement (D406 form) within the ANAF Portal will be mandatory for the large taxpayers category. The reference dates for when submitting the SAF-T statement will become mandatory for other taxpayer categories have not been settled yet (for medium-size taxpayers category the reference date is expected to be somewhere in 2022 and for the small taxpayers category the reference date is expected to be in 2023).


Any willing taxpayers may apply for the SAF-T voluntary testing program through which their SAF-T statement (D406T form), which also includes the XML file in SAF-T format, generated by their own systems from a semantic and syntactic point of view, without the transmitted data being taken over in the fiscal analysis performed by ANAF, is being tested. The voluntary testing program is also open to suppliers of financial-accounting applications, ERP systems and / or other types of applications with which taxpayers will prepare and submit the SAF-T statement (D406 form). The effective testing of the SAF-T statement (D406 form) with the ANAF system is already in place.


All the SAF-T documentation published by the Romanian tax authorities is available on the ANAF website.
