ECONOMIC OPERATORS

Under the Fiscal Code, the sponsoring economic operators benefit from tax incentives.

The sponsoring economic operators benefit from income tax deductions under certain conditions and limitations that are established by the fiscal code.

According to the New Fiscal Code in force as of January 1st, 2016, art. 25 Para. 4 let. i, sponsorship/patronage expenses and private scholarship expenses still remain non-deductible when calculating the profit tax. However, there is an increase in the minimum limit for the sponsorship amount, to be subtracted from the profit tax.

As a result, the economic operators can deduct from the owed profit tax, the value of the sponsorship within 5‰ (0.5%) of the turnover, but not more than 20% of the owed profit tax.

Art. 25 – The Fiscal Code

(4) The following expenses are not deductible:

1. i) sponsorship and/or patronage expenses as well as expenses for legally granted private scholarships; tax payers that perform sponsorship and/or patronage, under the provisions of Law No 32/1994 regarding sponsorship, as further amended and completed, and under the provisions of Law No 334/2002 on libraries, republished, as further amended and completed, as well as those who legally grant private scholarships, subtract the related amounts from the owed income tax to the minimum value level from the following:

2. the amount calculated by applying a 0.5% to the turnover; for situations where the applicable accounting regulations do not define the turnover indicator, this limit is determined according to the norms;

3. the amount representing 20% of the owed income tax.

The amounts that are not deducted from the income tax, according to the provisions of this letter, are reported in the following 7 consecutive years.
The recovery of these amounts will be done in order of their registration, in the same conditions, with each income tax payment term.
In order to perform a sponsorship under the aforementioned fiscal benefits, a written sponsorship contract is required, that specifies the object, the amount and the duration of the sponsorship period, as well as the rights and obligations of the parties involved.

If you are considering a sponsorship contract between your company and the Civic Alert Association, please contact us via e-mail at office@civicalert.ro. We will respond promptly with the required details.

Other methods of pledging will become available in the future. We thank you for your support.

Civic Alert, Air Alert
and Traffic Alert
are our ongoing projects.

Civic Alert is the first project of the Civic Alert Association. Its development was initiated in 2014 and the beta version for the mobile app and the website were launched in October 2014. Subsequently, we brought improvements to the app and the technical platform behind it as well as to the process of communicating to the authorities the problems reported by tens of thousands of users.

People appreciate our initiative and the authorities have started to see its benefits, some public institutions are in turn already trying to adapt their procedures to better manage the large number of citizens’ reports shared via Civic Alert. We also have more improvements to do, but the visible results from the street are very encouraging and it is obvious that this continues to be a project with further impact and great potential.

Air Alert followed – a project started in the spring of 2016, and Traffic Alert – a project started in the fall of 2016, both being in various stages of development, yet well taken by those who came into contact with them – people, private companies and organizations or representatives of the authorities.

Sure, it’s easy (and natural) to say that you like some ideas that propose solutions for the collective good and for the improvement of the civic space. Yet it is hard to develop them at the professional pace and level for which you have aimed, and it is extremely hard to find financing, even among those who appreciate you.
We have expertise, we have initiative, and we do not lack dedication. But we need help.

Civic Alert is a non-profit association funded only by contributions, donations and sponsorships. We have no political hue, we are not affiliated with any public institutions, and we cannot operate without constant financial support for our projects. Therefore, any contribution, however small, is very important to us. Please consider one of the available options.

Thank You!
