Mazars SAF-T practical training

The Standard Audit File for Tax – SAF-T is a standardized file that facilitates fiscal control by the Romanian tax authorities and simplifies tax compliance for taxpayers. In addition to this, SAF-T also guarantees information security.

As part of its digital transformation strategy, the Romanian tax authorities implemented SAF-T in Romania on 1 January 2022, when the first companies required to submit their SAF-T statements were large taxpayers. Starting with January 2023, medium-sized and small taxpayers in Romania are required to declare their tax and accounting information electronically through the SAF-T system.

To support you through the challenges that may appear in the following year(s), we are launching a training series, designed to fit your needs and help you understand the legal requirements and structure of the SAF-T reporting.
