EC says VAT rate cut unsustainable
The European Commission reacted on Tuesday to the Romanian Government's intention to reduce the VAT rate from 24% to 19% by announcing that such an "unilateral proposal" could have a negative impact on Romania's fiscal situation. The statement made by spokeswoman Annika Breidthardt indicates that the EC does not believe Minister Teodorovici assurances of sustainability.

"The 19% VAT rate is a thread to long-term development"
The VAT rate reduction from 24% to 19% on January 1, 2016, is a risky move and a threat to long-term development, according to tax expert Dan Schwartz. "The sudden move from a high rate to a low one is dangerous and chances are high that we might see budget troubles and a higher than approved deficit next year," said Schwartz.

Big banks pay less than 1% for short-term deposits
Five of the top ten banks pay less than 1% per year on one month deposits, while 12-month deposits bring in between 0.7% and 2.7% per year. The market is flooded with liquidity and the bankers are trying to offset the low demand for new loans. UniCredit, BCR, CEC Bank, ING Bank and BRD pay between 0.1% and 0.8% per year on one month deposits, while Banca Transilvania, Volksbank, Bancpost and Alpha Bank still pay above 1%.
