Overview of Taxation in Hungary

Taxation in Hungary comprises several types of taxes levied by both national and local governments. The tax structure includes income tax, social security contributions, corporate tax, and value-added tax (VAT), among others. A notable aspect of Hungarian taxation is the relatively low percentage of local taxes compared to the EU average.

Income tax is levied at a flat rate and provides allowances for families, which can be split between spouses or life partners. VAT is differentiated by various rates depending on the goods and services, with a standard rate being one of the highest in the EU. Corporate tax in Hungary is notably the lowest in the EU, and employment income is subject to social security contributions at a flat rate.

Tax Compliance and Procedures:

  • Corporate Income Tax (CIT) must be calculated according to the accounting year, with returns due by the last day of the fifth month following the accounting year.
  • Tax returns can be submitted electronically or in paper format, with certain entities mandated to file electronically.
  • Tax audits are conducted based on a risk assessment model, with a typical audit lasting 90-120 days.
  • Penalties for non-compliance can include default penalties, late payment interest, and charges for incorrect returns or late submissions.

Regarding VAT, Hungarian regulations stipulate detailed requirements for invoices, including information such as the tax identification number and a description of the goods or services supplied. Taxpayers have the right to correct their tax returns before audits begin, which could lead to a self-revision surcharge.

For businesses operating across borders, Hungary allows VAT reclaims for taxpayers registered in another EU member state without a permanent establishment in Hungary. Non-EU businesses can also reclaim VAT, based on reciprocity agreements.

The Hungarian tax authority is stringent about data reporting obligations, with substantial penalties for non-compliance. This includes the necessity to report outgoing invoices and submit recapitulative statements and EC Sales Lists for intra-community transactions.
