Let's start with a brief presentation of the concept. Whether you realize it or not, you already know the technology, because we use it every day in our daily work, such as whenever we connect to mobile applications. The API makes it easy to synchronize applications in real time, the most common case being when we connect to a site using existing Gmail or Facebook accounts. What happens in the back is possible because of the API technology that extracts the information from those accounts and uses it to connect to the site we want to enter.
At the end of last year, we had the pleasure and honor to attend the "Labor Crisis Forum". Impact on Major Infrastructure Projects" organized by Intact Media Group and moderated by Alessandra Stoicescu.
We have been faced with an acute labor crisis at national level for almost a few years, with almost all sectors affected, but the construction industry is by far the hardest hit. Starting this year, the effects of the labor crisis will become even more difficult to ignore because several infrastructure projects are underway and the fear is that there will be no more to execute them. This was also the clear warning expressed by the business representatives present in the hall.
The beginning of 2018 brought a reorganization of the compulsory social contributions system to be paid by employers for their own employees. If last year we had six contributions, this year we have only three: some have been merged and others have been redeployed between employer and employee.
The CAS, ie 25% of the social security contribution (pensions), is due to individuals with the quality of employee and is retained from income.
The CASS (contribution to health insurance) of 10% is paid by the insured person, who earns salary but also other income from dividends, interest or other independent activities.
The CAM or 2.25% employment insurance contribution is payable by employers and the base is the gross wage bill. This contribution includes the risk and accident fund, the unemployment fund, the sick leave fund and the guarantee wage claim fund. In addition, employers pay 4 and 8 percent extra for special and special work conditions.
The Tax Code entered into force on 1 January 2018 has brought about a number of changes andat the level of personal income tax, income tax for micro-enterprises and corporate tax.
Individuals pay a 10% tax on all taxable income categories, except for dividend income for which the 5% quota is retained. The tax on income from salaries is retained by the employer, who is obliged to submit the declaration and make the payment to the state budget.
Starting with 2018, the micro-enterprise income level is € 1 million, calculated at the NBR exchange rate as of 31 December 2017. Income tax for micro-enterprises remains at 1% for those with a full-time employee and 3% for non-employees .
Companies earning between 500,000 and 1,000,000 euros are taxed 1% on turnover.
These are just a few of the changes foreseen in the Fiscal Code that came into force on 1 January.
The introduction of the new VAT collection mechanism, known as VAT Split, was included in GO no. 23/2017, which states that as of 1 January 2018 companies registered for VAT purposes will have to open a new VAT account. Although several forms of Split VAT were circulated in its final form published in the Official Gazette, the document states that the VAT splitting mechanism is only mandatory for insolvent firms and those paying VAT, the other companies being able to opt for split VAT on a voluntary basis.

Stocks are money, money is blocked. Therefore, some of the most important tasks in both production and distribution are to reduce stock levels and at the same time avoid out-of-stock situations.
