Benefits package in Bucharest

Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Romania > Bucharest

Employees accept job offers not only upon the salary, but on the benefits that accompany many positions. Employee benefits are a "job perk" that may convince a potential employee to join a specific company. Evaluate what benefits are valuable to you when looking for a package.

Benefits tend to be limited in Romania. Perks you can look for include:

  • Luncheon vouchers - accepted as a form of payment in restaurants or supermarkets
  • Company car
  • Life insurance policies
  • Private health insurance
  • Private supplementary pension schemes
  • Private School Tuition Supplement
  • Year-end or Christmas bonus
  • Thirteenth month - an extra month's salary is paid in December
  • Gym subscriptions
  • Additional days of paid leave
  • Remote work arrangements

Usually the tax impact of all the benefits must be carefully examined and evaluated.
