Per 1 July a series of increases including higher minimum wages, prices and fines will become effective. The national minimum wage will increase from RON 850 to RON 900 (€ 205), the second increase in 2014. The first took place in January when the salary went up to RON 850 from RON 800. Electricity bills will include the famous special property tax and the price for natural gas will also experience a hike, fuelled by the National Energy Authority’s (ANRE) decision to increase gas imports during the summer. Roaming charges are going to drop and the tax exemption for reinvested profit will come into effect.
