Ministry of Finance
Ministry of economy and infrastructure
State Tax Service
Competition Council
National Center for Personal Data

Committee’s Main Advocacy Initiatives in 2017:

  • Legislative proposal in connection with the General Data Protection Regulation – Provisions that derogate from European rules. The Tax & Legal Committee identified several proposals for improvement of the draft law promoted by the National Center for Personal Data Protection. New provisions of the draft law establish multiple rules on the use and evidence of goods that might be potentially employed to breach privacy and civil rights. Hence, the following goods fall under the scope of this law: goods that are able to capture photo/video, software or hardware; hidden cameras; drones; IT solutions; and gadgets that provide data with limited accessibility to an individual.
  • Tax policy 2018. Addressing comprehensive comments and recommendations on behalf of the Tax Committee to relevant state authorities.
  • Reform of the sanctioning system. Representatives of the Committee had different views on the provisions of the draft proposed by the Ministry of Justice, and pointed out the need to ensure a more transparent, balanced process that takes into account their potential impact.
  • Work, migration, and foreigners’ regime in The Republic of Moldova. Based on legal constraints and gaps signaled by the business environment, the state authorities have made modifications and amendments to Law Nr. 180 regarding work migration and Law Nr. 200 regarding the foreigners’ regime in Republic of Moldova. Through this draft law, the author had revised and optimized the procedure and terms of granting the right to work and stay, inclusively of authorizations, and also simplified the list of necessary documents to obtain the above-mentioned rights.
  • Copyright and related rights. After an extensive consultative process, AGEPI has accepted the conceptual modification of the mechanism and procedures for collecting and distributing the remuneration levy with a more active involvement of state bodies, which will ensure a real guarantee for all actors involved in this process; and a considerable decrease of the value of remuneration (from 3% and more - up to1%), which will reduce the financial burden on economic operators.
  • Law on meal tickets. The committee had an active role in regards to reviewing the introduction of meal vouchers. Insurances have been granted by the Author in order to keep the law in parallel with the provisions made by Government Decision Nr. 144/2014 for the approval of the Regulation regarding the amount of and criteria for establishing made expenses; to be determined by the employer for the employee’s transportation, meals, and professional studies.
