Below we've written some useful information for companies who send parcels or ship to Romania from the UK. From Brasov to Bucharest we've got it covered.
Here's some useful information if you're shipping parcels to Romania:
Romania is situated in the South East of Europe and is the seventh largest EU member by population.
To date, 4000 companies from the United Kingdom operate in Romania.
British businesses can take advantage of these great benefits of exporting to Romania:
- The English language is used widely.
- You can meet face to face with your clients using low cost air travel.
- There's a massive market to sell to, nearly 20 million consumers!
- It's a great gateway to develop trade with the Balkans and Western CIS countries.
Add to this the SEPA standards for Euro payments (£0 cost to pay your invoices) a skilled and educated workforce and an adoption of western business practices to ensure easy integration and Romania is a great place to focus your export goals.
However as you'd expect, it's not all Blue sky! There are some challenges you need to be aware of including:
- The public sector spending has declined so commodity purchasing from this sector is reduced (as of Aug 2014).
- A knock on effect of this could mean delayed payments for public sector contracts.
- As a member of the European Union, bureaucracy is increasing and transparency is decreasing.
- The justice system has some inconsistencies and corruption is higher than average.
In 2013 export of goods from the UK made up 2.27% of all imports into Romania, this was worth 1.25 billion Euros. We are Romania's 13th largest inward investor amounting to 4 billion Euros invested!
Here's what red hot and Romania are importing most of from the UK:
- Machine parts and Electrical components.
- Clothing, shoes and textiles.
- Chemical products.
- Land and Air vehicles and other transportation equipment.
- Base metals and plastics.
Romania has a whopping great 24% value added tax rate! Wow and we thought we had it bad! However just as we have in the UK (our 5% rate), some products and services have a lower rate of 9% in Romania, here's the list of them:
- Breads and pastries.
- Caravanning and camping services
- Museum entrance fees.
- Newspapers and books.
- Pharmaceutical products.
As the UK is a member of the "Internal Single EU market" goods and services attract no import duties and allow free movement! This is great news for UK exporters as sending to Romania is just as easy in most cases as shipping a parcel or pallet within the UK!
One of the main problems with sending a parcel to Romania is the ability to correctly label your consignment. As with any non English speaking country trying to understand and interpret foreign characters and incomprehensible numbers can be a struggle.
Using this simply guide to Romanian addresses will help you make sure that your deliveries will arrive at their destination.
Addresses are made up of the following:
[Recipient]This is the name of the person that the parcel is being delivered to in Romania.
[Company]The company in Romania
[Street Type], [Street] [Number] [ [Block], [Eentrance], [Floor], [Apartment] ]This is often the most confusing part of the address. The first part is the type of street which can be any of the following:
Str. Street Intr. Drive Aleea. Alley Blvd. Boulevard Sos. Road Drumul. Road Bl. The code for the building. Sc. The entrance number. Et. The floor number. Ap. The apartment number.
Note: Bl. and Sc. may not be required and Et. and Ap. have to specified if Bl. or Sc. are used.
