Hungary 2017 retailer tax

Hungary is considering a new levy on large chains of retailers. The proposal follows a similar Polish proposal to levy a 2% turnover tax on supermarkets.

Hungary’s proposal would extend to all sectors of retailers, but only to chains.

If approved, the new tax would likely be introduced in 2017.
