With the Government Regulation №120/2021, the basis and operational framework of the National eInvoicing System was established. With the Regulation №130, the details about the eInvoice regime have been clarified.

The key institution in the eInvoicing process in Romania are Ministry of Finance and ANAF. It is also possible to access the legislation and technical information regarding the eInvoicing process from the Ministry of Finance’s web page.

Structure of Romanian eInvoice

 

There are two ways to create a Romanian eInvoice:

1. logincert.anaf.ro — IdP(Identity Provider) service that facilitates obtaining access tokens used to authorize access to API services. To achieve this, the user must be authenticated using qualified digital certificates.

2. api.anaf.ro — protected service that exposes APIs that require authorized access based on access tokens.

 

The scheme according to which the solution works is presented in the following figure:

In order to use the solution, it is necessary to be a registered user of the ANAF portal with a qualified digital certificate holding one of the SPV PJ rights (legal representative, appointed representative or authorized representative).

With third party application user is redirected to IdP, logincert.anaf.ro to get authentication and authorization token. Authentication is done using the qualified digital certificate of the user registered in the ANAF portal.

The API Registration link is accessed using the registration tab for developers on anaf.ro. If the user does not have an account in the ANAF Portal, he creates an account in the portal. After the necessary verification processes, access to the SPV (Virtual Private System) area in the ANAF portal is provided. There are two services offered on the portal:

1. Web services for eInvoice

 

2. Web services for eTransport

 

The ANAF portal also offers a production and test environment for eInvoice and eTransport.

System Structure of Romania eFactura Flow

 

Romania eInvoice structure is in EU standards. In this context, UBL, CII or RASP appear as invoice parameters. Invoices in XML format are uploaded to the RO eInvoice system via web services ANAF. If the invoice has been uploaded correctly, we can download the reply consisting of the original invoice and an e-signed file from the Ministry of Finance. In this case, the invoice is presented to the buyer. The company that receives the notification receives an email notifying them that they have a new document on the Business@Mail platform and a link to access it. Recipients access the web environment through the link where they can view and download the document(s). Thus, the sender completes traceability that lets the recipient know if he or she has taken any action on the document.
