PSD scenario: Dragnea and Vâlcov take into account the taxation of energy companies on turnover and not on profit, as before
The transformation from corporate income tax to turnover tax on energy companies is a working scenario for the PSD to build the 2019 budget, G4Media.ro sources told the party. The share discussed would be 5% of the turnover. It is not clear at this moment whether Finance Minister Eugen Teodorovici and Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă agree with the plans of Liviu Dragnea and Darius Vâlcov. The reason for this change would be the need to attract additional funds to the state budget in 2019 to cover the growing needs: the increase in pensions from 1 September (8.4 billion extra lei) and the salaries of the public servants from 1 January about 17 billion lei). In addition, Liviu Dragnea has issued a tough warning to multinationals, banks, supermarket chains and telecoms companies, which he has accused of tax evasion and expatriates.
