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 survey: more than 60% of companies expect turnover to grow in 2023, but also to increase the number of teams active in Romania

This is the conclusion of the ANIS Sentiment Survey - a survey conducted for the first time by ANIS at member companies between January and February 2023. Following the ANIS Sentiment Survey, the association found that: - 65% of responding companies expect turnover growth in 2023. Only 4.8% expect a decrease in revenue, while 30.2% expect turnover to be similar to 2022. - 68.3% of companies expect to end 2023 with a larger team than in 2022, while 22.2% still do not know to what extent they will lay off or hire this year. Only 9.5% expect a reduction in the team in Romania. - 61.9% of respondents estimate that client investment in IT projects this year will increase, while 38.1% estimate a decrease at this level.
