This chapter investigates the impact of taxation on the online business environment in Romania. In the last 30 to 35 years, the world economy has been marked by a rapid development of the services sector, especially in economically-developed countries, with the degree of internationalization being a major feature of no doubt. The contribution of tax consultancy to the development of the economy has been remarkable in most areas of activity. The results asserted the research hypothesis: Romanian firms' strategies were influenced by the phenomenon of corruption reported, in particular, to tax evasion. Governments around the world are trying to respond to growing budgetary pressures by trying to introduce measures to combat tax evasion. Among them is Romania, which has lately changed its legislation on identifying undeclared revenues to tax. Continuous improvement of the strategy to identify and develop new processes leads to increased performance, efficiency of skills, and harmonization of results.
Chapter Preview


Given the recent history of scandals involving accounting conduct, the credibility of the public accounting profession has dropped significantly, losing one of the core responsibilities of the professional accountant (Doukakis, 2014). According to specialty studies, the share of services in world trade has increased significantly over the last period, with “invisible” exchanges currently accounting for 30% of total world goods and services flows (Byard, Li & Yu, 2011; He, Pan & Tian, 2017). An important place for this is tax consultancy.
