If you want to start an activity in the field of electronic money and decide to obtain an EMI license, we advise you to consider a country like Romania.

Back in 2018, authorities adopted standards, regarding the regulation of digital money and EMI in Romania.

The Ministry of Finance prepared a resolution and indicated key conditions, among which:
  • a minimum authorized capital (35 thousand euros);
  • the annual audit (a report on which is provided to the regulator);
  • starting a business in Romania no later, than 1 year after obtaining a license for a payment system in Romania;
  • company's executives have the experience and qualifications in this field;
  • a technical support;
  • a business plan;
  • the description of anti-money laundering funds in accordance with EU standards;
  • other things.

An important nuance: if you violate the conditions (you will carry out activities without a license for financial services in Romania, illegally issue electronic money), then the regulator may impose sanctions (a fine or a prison term of up to 3 years).
