    ANIS, the Employers' Association of the Software and Services Industry, together with 138 other companies and 5 signatory organizations (Business Service Leaders Association, Cluj IT Association - Cluj IT Cluster, Sibiu IT Association, Transylvania IT Cluster, Association of Digital Innovation Centers in Romania - RODIH), has sent today to the Romanian Government a Memorandum to signal the impact that the changes in the tax code, which have been reported in the national press in recent days, may have, namely the taxation of income of employees in the IT industry exceeding the amount of 10.000 lei gross. The signatory companies and associations together have more than 31,000 employees and a combined turnover of more than 3.4 billion euros. Start-ups, small, medium and large companies, local and international, service and product companies have joined in this solidarity action, reflecting the unanimous and unequivocal opinion of the industry about the negative impact of the measures.

    ANIS: The government is jeopardising the long-term development of the IT industry with tax measures discussed in secret without consulting the industry

    ANIS, the Employers' Association of the Software and Services Industry, expresses its concern about the way the governing coalition chooses to jeopardize the future of the IT industry and Romania's strength in this sector at regional and global level through tax measures discussed without consulting industry representatives, with immediate applicability, without respecting any principle of the Tax Code. Taking into account that government representatives have publicly stated in recent months that the tax changes will in no way target the IT industry, given the strong positive contribution to GDP growth and the balance of trade brought by the sector, ANIS points out that by continuing the current intentions, the decision makers risk to remove Romania from the competitiveness map at regional level, with countries such as Bulgaria and especially Poland that will take full advantage in the medium and long term of this unexpected decision.

    ANIS 2023 Fellowships - 6th edition: university teachers can obtain grants of 5,000 euros / project for new technologies and innovative methods introduced in the teaching process.
