Abstract: The possibility of signing contracts electronically is a widespread practice long before the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic and continues to facilitate relations between the parties, the provision of services and the making of profits. Despite the possibility of fraudulent signing of contracts, online conclusion brings important benefits in reducing bureaucracy and for international trade relations. This paper aims to delimit the specifics of signing online contracts in Romania and the United Kingdom. The purpose of this comparative approach is both to highlight the opportunities offered by current legislation and to identify potential local legislative improvements in relation to British legislation. In the first part, we discuss the legislation of our country and the types of contracts that are suitable for signing online. In the second part, we question the signing of online contracts in the UK.
