Starting with 2016, the exception from the definition of a building will no longer be applicable for nuclear power plants and so Nuclearelectrica will be obligated to pay tax for non-residential buildings belonging to authorised persons for its two nuclear reactors. The tax is payable to the Cernavoda local council. At the same time, given that the tax on buildings will be applicable, the company will no longer have to pay a tax on special constructions in 2016 for the two power plants, detailed the report.
At noon on Monday, the price of Nuclearelectrica shares was up by 0.90 percent trading on the Bucharest Stock Exchange.
