On 12 September 2019, the Ministry of Public Finances published two new draft amendments to state aid legislation, specifically the state aid scheme governed by G.D. 807/2014 on investment in assets and the state aid scheme governed by G.D. 332/2014 on job creation. They are basically a refresh of the previous projects issued on 3 July.

Several amendments have been proposed and are waiting to be approved by the Ministry of Public Finances after discussions with the private sector. Here are the new features: 

G.D. 807/2014 for investment in assets

  • Salary expenses: option of financing not only tangible and intangible assets, but also salary costs for 2 consecutive years
  • State aid payment: extension of the state aid effective payment until 2025
  • Minimum threshold for initial investment has been reduced to RON 2.35 million for 29 counties: Vaslui, Botoșani, Teleorman, Mehedinți, Suceava, Olt, Neamț, Călărași, Vrancea, Buzău, Bacău, Galați, Giurgiu, Harghita, Dâmbovița, Ialomița, Maramureș, Covasna, Satu Mare, Brăila, Dolj, Vâlcea, Bistrița-Năsăud, Tulcea, Mureș, Sălaj, Iași, Hunedoara and Bihor

G.D. 332/2014 for job creation

  • Minimum salary: introduction of the notion of a minimum monthly gross salary of RON 8,000 (RON 4,600 net) for highly qualified jobs and RON 5,500 (RON 3,200 net) for qualified jobs
  • Harmonisation with the updates launched last year for GD 807/2014 (continuous filing of applications rather than ‘windows’; elimination of scoring-based selection and start of the project immediately after submission of the application instead of on the date of approval)
