Norms for the certification of the tax returns


Decision of the Chamber of Tax Consultants no. 6/30.07.2014 published in the Official Gazette no. 883 of 4 December 2014
The Decision approves the norms regulating the procedure for the certification of the tax returns.


The responsibilities of the tax consultant and of the taxpayer regarding the certification and the work procedures are established through these norms.


The check of the tax treatment applicable for the economic operations reflected in the tax returns is performed through sample checks, depending on the materiality established by the tax consultant based on professional judgement.


The norms provide work procedures for the certification of the following tax returns: corporate income tax return, VAT returns, excise duties return and income tax return.


Further to performing the specific procedures, the tax consultant will prepare a certification report which will be the basis for the certification document. The content of the certification report is provided by the norms.

The norms also contain provisions regarding the written agreement which should be concluded between the tax consultant and the taxpayer who opts for the certification of its tax returns.


These provisions should be considered given that the certification of the tax returns represents a criterion used for the assessment of the tax payer’s status in the context of the tax audit selection process.
The certification document is filled in and submitted electronically via the portal of the National Agency for Fiscal Administration.
