Updates for NACE Codes in 2025: How the New Classification Will Affect Businesses. The Third NACE codes Revision for Romanian Companies


Starting with 2025, economic activities in Romania will operate under the new rules set up through the third revision of the Activities Classification in the National Economy (NACE).

This significant update brings a wave of changes that will affect most of the companies, despite of their size or activity area. To successfully deal with these changes, it will be necessary to analyze the new authorization conditions and, if applicable, update the companies' article of incorporation.

What is a NACE Code and Why is it Important?

The NACE classification is essential for identifying and reflecting the economic activities carried out by companies.

These NACE codes, widely recognized in the national economy, are used from the registration and authorization of companies before the Trade Register for reflecting the activities to be carried out by new companies, to financial reporting by activity areas.

Regular updates of the NACE codes reflect the evolution of the economy over time to time and strive to align economic activities with international standards requirements.

Additionally, these NACE codes hold significance at the administrative level. Therfore, depending on the NACE codes declared as being carried out by the companies:

  • There may be fiscal implications, such as inclusion or exclusion from certain tax regimes or eligibility for specific tax incentives and state aid;

  • Certain authorizations (such as environmental permits) or additional licenses may be required for carrying out the activity (as for accounting activities) or for certain activities you are not allowed to carried out all together.

Expected Changes in the NACE Code for 2025

The third revision seek to adapt the classification to the new economic and technological realities, imposed by both international standards and the economic reality we face.

For example, fields such as information technology, e-commerce and renewable energy could have significant changes in their classification, to better reflect specific activities and innovations in these areas. Additionally, certain codes may be eliminated or consolidated, affecting the current structure of the constitutive deeds.

Effect on Businesses

Companies will have to review their articles of incorporation to comply with the new NACE codes. This is not a simple task, as it involves a detailed analysis of the activities carried out and aligning them with the new coding. In some cases, an evaluation of the business strategy may be necessary to adapt to the upcoming changes.
