Starting Monday the natural persons throughout the country can check their fiscal status online, three months after the Virtual Private Space (SPV) was launched and has worked as a pilot project for accountants in Bucharest and Ilfov County, the Finance Ministry announced. SPV is the first electronic service working in Romania and is facilitating natural persons’ contact to check their fiscal status.
“I am satisfied that during my term I’ve started and put into practice several projects to modernize the fiscal administration, to encourage the online interaction between the fiscal authority and the taxpayers. SPV is one of these projects, successfully implemented with zero budget, owing to much involvement and skill by the specialists from the ministry and from ANAF (the National Authority for Fiscal Administration),” said Finance Minister Ioana Petrescu, one of the ministers that will not be part of Ponta IV government.
In order to use the system, the natural persons should identify themselves electronically with digital certificates or by credentials such as name/password together with identification codes.
The communication is both ways, both from the taxpayer to ANAF and the other way around.
The taxpayers have access to information about their own fiscal status, i.e. unpaid dues, the annual tax amount and the note about payment obligations with the possibility to pay online. The taxpayers can also check online the information included in the 112 paper, the amounts declared by the employer for social security in accordance with personal incomes.
The project is to be extended for other categories of documents and information regarding taxpayers. Natural persons might identify themselves also by mobile phone or by health card. According to the Finance Ministry, the service is to be developed in accordance with an agreed schedule due to be finalised in December 2015.
