Multiple payment order for Treasury payments

The National Agency for Fiscal Administration, through the Regional General Directorate of Public Finances Brasov, Taxpayers Assistance Service, made available to taxpayers a material with instructions for making payments by electronic multiple payment order (OPME) by economic operators and other entities than public institutions.

According to Ministry of Public Finance (MFP) Order no. 1819 (Official Gazette MO 279 / 03.04.2020), the electronic multiple payment order (OPME) can be used by economic operators (economic agents) and entities other than public institutions to make online payments from accounts opened at Treasury units State

It is very important to mention that payments with the help of the electronic multiple payment order can be made starting with April 21, 2020.

In order to use OPME, the representative of the economic agent who signs the electronic multiple payment order (OPME) must be enrolled in the Virtual Private Space (SPV) as legal representative, designated representative or authorized for it.

The representative of the economic agent who signs the electronic multiple payment order (OPME) and the person designated in the Signature Specimen File submitted to the State Treasury unit where the economic agent has his accounts open, must be the same.

The representative of the economic agent applies the electronic signature in the column “Signature 1” on the electronic multiple payment order (OPME).

Economic agents that have designated in the specimen of signatures distinct persons who sign the payment order for the State Treasury (OPT) with signature 1 and signature 2 may use the electronic multiple payment order (OPME) only if they decide that payments can be made by using a single signature and submit to the State Treasury unit a new sheet of specimen signatures under these conditions, in the initial conditions it will be possible to use only the payment order for the State Treasury on paper (OPT).
