ANIS: What does it mean for IT firms to eliminate the income tax exemption. How much would bring the exemption to the state budget

IT firms do not have high operational costs. About 80% of a company's costs are labor costs. And if this cost were to increase by 10%, the impact in the final prices of the products and services of these firms would be very high. If such a decision is made, surely it will be a major impact and an imbalance could occur - argues Gabriela Mechea, executive director of ANIS.

And as the teachers are in the front line of training, their support has become one of the long-term objectives of the Association, which is concretely reflected through steps such as the ANIS Scholarships program.

ANIS: Tax incentives keep IT industry competitive

Tax incentives have made and keep the Romanian IT industry competitive, in a race with other countries that offer programmers income tax 0, such as Ukraine, Poland or Belarus. The shortage of IT workforce at EU level is so large that such a measure could result in a massive reduction of specialists in the country, thus a major economic impact. We call on politicians to carefully analyze the dynamics of this sector, before sending signals of instability in a sector already heavily affected by fiscal changes, introduced without impact studies, and we invite President Orban to a dialogue with the representatives of the software industry.
