ANCOM authorized RCS & RDS S.A. to apply a surcharge for certain roaming services in the EEA

BUCHAREST, Romania, 1-Jul-2019 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — We would like to inform the market and our investors that the National Authority for Management and Regulation of Communications in Romania (ANCOM) has authorized RCS & RDS S.A., the Company’s subsidiary in Romania (“RCS&RDS”) to continue to apply a surcharge for certain mobile telephony roaming services supplied to its customers traveling in the European Economic Area (EEA), therefore including the European Union.

By decision issued on 1 July 2019, for allowing RCS&RDS to continue to recoup the costs incurred for the supply of roaming services and to continue to apply the national tariffs in Romania, ANCOM has authorized RCS&RDS’ request to apply a surcharge, on top of the national tariffs, for certain roaming services supplied to its own customers traveling in the EEA, but without going above the maximal following values:

  • 0.0187 Euro/minute (excluding VAT), for the calls made by its clients,
  • 0.0085 Euro/minute (excluding VAT), for the calls received by its clients (this value might vary in accordance with the changes brought by the European legislation),
  • 2.20 Euro/GB (0.00220 Euro/MB), excluding VAT.

RCS&RDS will apply the roaming surcharges starting from the first unit of consumption supplied to its own customers traveling in the EEA.

The renewed authorization issued by ANCOM will apply for 12 months starting 1 July 2019.

For information regarding the initial approval in this respect granted to RCS&RDS in 2017, we invite the market and our investors to refer to the current report issued by the Company on 30 June 2017 (

DIGI: our Romanian subsidiary RCS & RDS S.A. paid over LEI 1.2 billion for taxes and contributions to local and state budgets in 2017

BUCHAREST, Romania, 08-Jan-2019 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — We would like to inform the market and our investors that, on 29 December 2018, an Emergency Government Ordinance no 114/2018 (the “GEO 114/2018”) establishing, amongst others, certain budgetary and tax measures was published in the Romanian Official Gazette. The GEO 114/2018 sets an increased monitoring tariff of 3% applied to the turnover of telecommunications operators meant to finance the activity of the National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications of Romania (ANCOM). The prolongation of the exploitation period for the existing mobile communications licenses will be subject to the payment of 4% applied to the turnover generated from the mobile telephony operations in the year prior to the extension multiplied with the number of years for which the license validity period is prolonged. The further grant of the new mobile communications licenses will be subject to the payment of a percentage of either 2% or 4% applied to the turnover generated from the mobile telephony operations in the year prior to the grant date multiplied with the number of years corresponding to the validity period of the license. Also, the fines applicable for regulatory breaches in connection with the telecommunications sector in Romania were increased significantly.

The GEO 114/2018 additionally increased the level of the corporate tax applied to licenses owners operating energy or gas activities in Romania to 2% applied to the turnover generated from the respective energy or gas activity. In the public announcements made at the adoption of the GEO 114/2018, the Romanian Government’s representatives stated that the additional taxation would be caused by the “incorrect behaviour” of the telecommunications operators. We are of the opinion that these allegations have no legal, tax or economical basis, and that the decision to introduce these new taxes is ungrounded and discriminatory.

In connection with RCS & RDS S.A.’s activity, our Romanian subsidiary („Digi | RCS&RDS”), we express the following: Out of the turnover of approximately LEI 3.3 billion registered in 2017, Digi | RCS&RDS paid during the same year more than 1/3 (meaning over LEI 1.2 billion) for: taxes and contributions to the state budget, to the central authorities and to the local budgets; amounts due to state owned companies and other similar entities; and also it performed multiple payments to various public and private entities based on mandatory legal requirements. In connection with the income tax assessed by Digi | RCS&RDS, we must recall that, since 2007 until 2017, Digi | RCS&RDS invested more than EURO 2 billion for the development of a highly advanced fixed and mobile telecommunications network based on optical fibre. These investments were made to the benefit of millions of customers who enjoy today the best quality services at very advantageous prices. These investments performed by Digi | RCS&RDS (and which were subject of amortization) have implicitly determined the reduction of the taxable basis, in full compliance with the tax legislation.

In our view GEO 114/2018 is prejudicial to the development of the telecommunications and energy industries in Romania as it materially increases, without proper consultation and without any serious justification, the fiscal burden on businesses in these sectors, thus potentially restricting the ability to make further investments and affecting clients. We will be further evaluating the impact of GEO 114/2018 on our business and take those measures that are deemed necessary.

Poor Quality Tax Preparation And Refund Anticipation Check Abuses In New Mexico

Between February 1 and April 18, 2011, First Nations Development Institute conducted 12 “mystery shopper” tests of paid tax preparers in New Mexico. These mystery shopper tests were conducted in communities with a high Native American population and close to Indian reservations. First Nations visited tax preparer sites in Gallup, Grants, Bernalillo, Farmington, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. The goal of the work was to assess the quality of tax preparation services and to test the hypothesis that the tax preparation firms are steering people toward expensive products, such as Refund Anticipation Loans or Refund Anticipation Checks.

This research uncovered several problems with inaccurate, unethical, or unprofessional behavior on the part of tax preparers. “In our small sample of mystery shoppers, it was shocking what we uncovered,” stated Shawn Spruce, a financial education consultant for First Nations. Spruce also shared,“Unfortunately, the companies that our mystery shoppers visited did a poor job preparing even basic tax returns and could have exposed them to serious tax liability. In general, we were startled by the low quality service and the fact that two of these companies automatically signed our shoppers up for expensive Refund Anticipation Checks, even though they could have directly deposited their tax returns into their own bank accounts.”

Michael E. Roberts, president of First Nations Development Institute, stressed the importance of conducting the mystery shopper tests and resulting research on tax preparers.

“This research reinforces what other studies have found,” stated Roberts. “There is a great need for better regulation of tax preparers so that low-income people can hold on to their hard earned tax refunds and avoid expensive and predatory products like Refund Anticipation Checks. It is unfortunate that tax time serves as an opportunity to exploit Native American taxpayers through high fees and unnecessary products that take money out of taxpayers’ pockets.”

On May 4, 2011, Spruce presented the findings in Tax Time Troubles, a First Nations Development Institute report that provides details about predatory, unprofessional, and inaccurate tax preparation firms serving often low income communities in New Mexico. Spruce was the evening keynote speaker at the Effective Asset Building Strategies in New Mexico conference being held at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This conference was sponsored by Prosperity Works, a nonprofit organization that works to reduce the impact of predatory lending and whose mission is to ensure that every New Mexican has the opportunity, knowledge and relationships to achieve economic prosperity.

Stay On Top Of A Potential Tax Investigation As HMRC Increases Prosecutions

With new predicted figures the government has released, it appears the chances of you being on the receiving end of a tax investigation, and potentially a prosecution, are set to increase over the next few years. HMRC has set a new target for additional tax revenue of £18 billion over four years and for prosecutions of 1,000 a year – a 500% increase from the current 200 prosecutions a year.

This all comes at a time when the government is looking to rapidly reduce spending. As a result, it is likely they will be making these investigations and prosecutions without the same level of intelligence as before. These figures should not come as pretty reading for those who run a business or are self-employed.

An investigation can last for a long time and seriously get under your skin. Of course, you already have a busy and hectic lifestyle, and an investigation of this type can hamper your work and personal life. It is not a nice experience – as anybody who has gone through one before would tell you.

If you are at all worried about any of this, or if you have already been contacted by HMRC, do not worry. You should contact the experts at Rooney Tax Services, who can help you. They can represent you, deal with all the documents and paperwork, and pretty much take over the whole case.

Whether your problem is a local office investigation, a specialist investigation, a civil investigation of fraud or offshore disclosures under the new disclosure opportunity, Rooney Tax Services will do their utmost to assist you in an objective, clear and helpful manner.

Millions Of Americans Count On Their Tax Refunds Each Year To Pay Down Debts

Millions of Americans count on their tax refunds each year to pay down debts, get caught up on bills, or simply to make ends meet. With an estimated 1.5 million personal bankruptcies to be filed in 2011, bankruptcy lawyers around the country are being asked the same question: “What will happen to my tax refund if I declare bankruptcy?”

Income tax refunds are basically interest-free loans to the government, and are therefore considered assets of debtors who declare bankruptcy. The trustee assigned to your case may be able to seize your income tax refund, depending upon two main factors: first, what type of bankruptcy you file, and second, whether your refund is fully  exempted.

The two main types of personal bankruptcy cases are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. In a Chapter 7 case, debtors are essentially allowed to walk away from their debts.

In a Chapter 13 case, debtors must repay their unsecured debts over 3 to 5 years.

Most Chapter 7 cases are considered “no asset” cases, and for those assets that the debtor does possess, there are federal and state exemption laws, which prevent the bankruptcy trustee from seizing and selling the debtor’s property.

Just like the debtor’s household goods, clothing and automobile, in most Chapter 7 cases the debtor’s tax refund can be fully exempted, which means the bankruptcy trustee cannot even consider seizing the refund. However it is very important to use the full and correct exemptions to protect the refund.

Chapter 13 cases can be a bit more complicated. If you have a confirmed Chapter 13 Plan that requires repayment of only a percentage of your debt, your trustee will likely seize your refund every year over the course of your bankruptcy, using the proceeds to increase the payout to unsecured creditors.  Income tax refunds in Chapter 13 are considered “property of the estate,” so your trustee will want to apply this money toward payment of your Plan.

In 100% repayment cases, however, the trustee has no interest in seizing your tax refund.  If your income is demonstrably sufficient to satisfy your confirmed Plan, the trustee will allow you to keep your tax refund.  You may want to adjust your withholdings before filing a Chapter 13 appropriate.

The bankruptcy trustee will in most cases require the debtor to file a tax return to determine whether the debtor’s refund can be seized and used to repay creditors. Unlike a home or car with equity, which must first be auctioned to produce distributable funds, tax refunds are a quick cash windfall to the creditors.

Principle First Highlights Budget Plans To Make Venture Capital Trusts More Attractive

Principle First has registered extremely strong demand for Venture Capital Trust (VCT) investments driven on the one hand by the VCT’s numerous tax advantages, but also by proposed positive changes in VCT legislation which were announced in this year’s budget, which if passed should allow VCTs to invest in a wider range of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with up to 250 employees, and market capitalisation up to £15m.

Principle First Highlights Budget Plans To Make Venture Capital Trusts More Attractive

Gareth Flanagan, managing director of Principle First, said: “VCTs offer an unbeatable 30% tax relief and there are now very innovative VCT models available which have very effectively minimised risk. As the top tax bracket has now risen to 50%, VCTs are a more attractive investment than ever, particularly for high earners.”

Principle First believes the recent increased demand is due to the market conditions which have made VCT investments extremely favourable at present. In the current economic environment, where bank lending to SMEs is relatively difficult to obtain, the UK’s most dynamic companies are looking around for alternative sources of finance – and see VCTs as an attractive option. Consequently, VCT managers have never had such a range of good deals coming across their desks, and the quality and standard of companies where they invest has never been so good. VCT investments offer a 30% upfront income tax relief on investments of £3,000 – £200,000.

According to Principle First, the Octopus VCT, which minimises investment risk, and Alternative Investment Market (AIM) VCTs have also benefited. AIMs work best when investing in companies with capitalisation towards £15m, and as such are poised to benefit strongly from the budget proposals to relax investment rules.

VCTs are a valuable and highly tax-efficient strategic investment which can be used in conjunction with Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) and a personal pension, as part of a rounded, balanced and tax-streamlined financial plan.

Principle First Sees Rising Demand For Guaranteed Investments

Principle First reports guaranteed investments are rapidly gaining in popularity, as many investors who felt the pain of the recent slump in stock investments seek more stability and security, moving forward. This follows a noticeably sharp rise in the number of Principle First clients eager to invest capital but also looking for the security that guaranteed investments provide.

Principle First Sees Rising Demand For Guaranteed Investments

Guaranteed investments offer stability and security to those wishing to invest with no risk to capital. This is a significant attraction to those who saw the value of their other investments fall dramatically in recent years, and indeed to those who only witnessed the economic downturn, and are coming to invest money now.” said Gareth Flanagan, Managing Director, Principle First.

There are a wide variety of guaranteed products on the investments market, one particular guaranteed investment available through Principle First is the MetLife Guaranteed Investment Bond. The Guaranteed Investment Bond is a single premium, unit linked insurance bond that invests in a range of portfolios managed by MetLife.

“Income bonds may suit those who wish to enjoy a monthly income from interest on a lump sum guaranteed investment.” said Gareth Flanagan, managing director of Principle First.

This type of bond is not invested in the stock market, and may be the guaranteed investment of choice for those wishing to avoid stock market investments. As guaranteed investments, income bonds offer the security of knowing that the original sum is secure and will be returned, combined with the monthly or annual interest payments on the cash. (Investors can also choose to roll up annual interest, and take it at the end of the bond’s term). These payments are taxable, and can be paid directly into the investor’s bank account.

As is generally the case with bonds, penalty charges are likely to be payable if the bond is cashed in before the end of its term. From that point of view, income bonds are suitable only where the investor can do without the cash for the term of the bond. As Chartered Financial Planners, Principle First offers an advice service covering all aspects of guaranteed investments to clients.

New Online Inheritance Tax Planner

Principle First has announced the online launch of its unique Inheritance Tax Planner facility. Developed in close consultation with clients, the unique new online tool enables users to calculate their own personal liability for inheritance tax.

Levied at 40%, Inheritance Tax (IHT) is one of the most important taxes to HMRC (The Revenue Commissioners), and swells the taxman’s coffers by billions of pounds every year. The good news though, for many inheritors, is that a good financial adviser can radically cut a person’s IHT liability, in just a few simple steps.

The new Principle First online Inheritance Tax Planner alerts clients to their current Inheritance Tax liability and when used alongside Principle First’s financial planning advice it could enable them to vastly reduce or completely eliminate their exposure to what has been called ‘the most avoidable tax of all’.

The Principle First Inheritance Tax Calculator is an important tool as it helps with the crucial first step in avoiding this most expensive of taxes which is simply knowing how much could be owed.

IHT can apply to parts of a person’s wealth when they pass funds and assets on to their children. It is a relatively simple calculation based on the total assets in their ‘estate’, less debts and liabilities. Despite this, many people fail to take a few minutes to work out their IHT liability, and then take advice on how to reduce it.

The current tax-free allowance, or ‘nil rate band’ for IHT in 2010-11 is £325,000 (£650,000 for a married couple or civil partnership). This amount however covers a wide range of assets which are included as part of an estate. Calculations need to include the value of properties, cars, valuables, savings, investments, and insurances – less the value of any outstanding mortgage, loans and other debts.

By entering these values into the inheritance Tax Planner, in response to a series of simple questions, the user can calculate the value of their estate, and deduct their allowance to show how much of their wealth will be liable to Inheritance Tax. The calculator will then show how much of that they would have to pay in Inheritance Tax at this moment.

Principle First believes the new online tool will prove to be a simple but valuable asset for its clients which could easily help them save thousands of pounds which they would otherwise lose to HMRC.

Financial press releases – Urges Consumers To Renew More Than Just Their ISAs As The End Of The 2009/2010 Tax Year Approaches

Traditionally, April sees a flurry of financial activity as savers rush to renew their ISAs with the current tax year drawing to a close and a new session starting afresh. With a plethora of competitive packages and ISA bonuses to entice shoppers, there’s never been a better time to tighten up your finances by getting a great deal on tax-free savings. Although ISAs will be the financial flavour of the month, what’s to stop consumers from shopping around for a better deal on other products at the same time?

New money saving website – – is asking just that. A price comparison website that compares life insurance packages from a variety of providers, is urging consumers to see April the 5th as more than just a deadline for ISAs.

“The increased focus on financial services and products that the end of the tax year brings shouldn’t just centre on savings products. It takes no time at all for consumers to sit down and reassess whether their current insurance and savings packages are the most rewarding and cost effective options on the market for them; especially when using price comparison websites like”

Although the UK has officially left the recession behind, consumers should continue to save and rechannel money they might have splurged on high end, luxury goods into building a firmer financial foundation.

With the growth of price comparison websites boasting a 30-50% increase year on year, consumers are spoilt for choice when comparing everything from home and contents insurance to wedding or golf cover. reiterates the hidden benefits of price comparison in the current financial climate:

“The end of the recession doesn’t mean consumers should become disinterested in what happens to their money. Go online and consumers are spoilt for choice when it comes to price comparison sites that can save people hundreds of pounds. If consumers shop around at the start of April they could benefit from significant savings that are easily reinvested in a holiday, home improvement or even some early savings for Christmas.”

Financial Experts Predicting Rapid Dollar Devaluation in a Coming Burst of the ‘Dollar Bubble’

Many news commentators are echoing the same resounding assurance: the recession is over. But not everyone sees it this way. Who’s right? Just look at the facts.

While Wall Street, thanks to the help of the Federal Reserve, rallied for a big end-of-the-year win, at least for top executives, they’re getting big bonuses while Main Street investors suffer. Rising unemployment figures, increased foreclosures and a loss of wealth continue to plague the average Joe.

Times Magazine named Chairman of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke, “Person of the Year” for 2009. The National Inflation Association, a grassroots group that warns people of the dangers of hyperinflation, named him “Villain of the Year.”

The Fed’s policies have made the value of the US dollar artificially high and before long the dollar bubble is bound to burst, leading to hyperinflation with prices of consumer goods rising sharply. According to Phoebe Chongchua of the Denver-based Nabers Group, the U.S. is already beginning to experience this kind of runaway inflation.

Nabers Group has issued a warning to U.S. consumers on its blog about the impending devaluation of the U.S. Dollar’s value in a period of hyperinflation.

“Hyperinflation can really be thought of as a silent tax, especially if artificially created by U.S. monetary policy. If the dollars you have today can purchase a fruit punch, a sandwich and a bag of chips but that same money in the future can only purchase the fruit punch, then your money has been devalued—you have lost purchasing power. Ultimately it’s the average middle class consumer who ends up getting the short end of the stick,” says Chongchua.

For most people, the major concern is how to preserve their dwindling wealth. CEO Jeff Nabers, encourages clients to diversify their portfolios using an exceptionally flexible investment vehicle known as the Solo 401k.

“The Solo 401k is designed specifically for a business owner who has no full-time employees. One of the most powerful benefits of the Solo 401k is the plan’s participant loan feature, which offers a tax-favorable alternative to withdrawing money from a retirement plan as a distribution,” says Nabers.

Preserving your wealth doesn’t have to be an uphill battle even as we head into rising inflation and the devaluing of the dollar if people act now to protect their wealth.
