In the Official Gazette no. 1079 of 12.11.2020, was published the Law no. 248/2020 for the amendment of art. 291 of Law no. 227/2015 regarding the Fiscal Code.
According to the Law, the threshold to which the reduced VAT rate of 5% is applied is increased in case of the delivery of housing as part of the social policy, with a usable area of maximum 120 m², excluding household annexes, purchased by individuals.
