The registration of a Romanian company has to be done following a set of steps and specific company formation procedures must be completed based on the company type preferred by the investors. As a general rule, the registration procedure is based on the same principles that can be met at the level of other European countries and thus, European businessmen can discover that they  are familiarized with the steps involved in the procedure. 
 
However, even in this situation, it is highly recommended to address to a team of local lawyers who has the necessary expertise in the field and who can handle various procedures, especially in the case in which there is a language barrier involved. Besides this, when investing in Romania, other aspects can be of interest for a foreign investors. 
 
For example, when relocating here for investment purposes or purchasing/renting a property that will be used as a main residence or one that will be used as the head office of the new company. In this sense, Enescu&Cuc Law Firm can be of help and can easily explain the procedures that have to be followed.
