Hungary coronavirus VAT measures

  • Mar 27, 2020 | Richard Asquith

Update: 27 March, Hungary has delayed the update of its live invoice reporting schema from 1 April until 1 July 2020.

The Hungarian tax and customs office has issued notice of tax payment deferrals following the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The measures mostly target individuals. However, businesses may apply for tax (including VAT) payment deferrals. But there is a HUF10,000 administrative fee.

The measures for tax and associated penalties and interest include:

  • Postponement of tax payments
  • Step repayment schedule
  • Tax forgiveness
