Hungary delays live invoice reporting

Hungary delays live invoice reporting

Hungary has dropped plans to require live invoice reporting until July 2018.

The requirement had been for the submission of XML-based details of invoices with sales VAT above HUF100,000 (about €300).  The plan had been for the tax authorities to then provide an individual invoice ID number for use with the invoice. This will be withdrawn; instead tax registered businesses will be required to report the issuance of qualifying invoices within 24 hours.

The 1-year delay is to allow for further development of requirements and IT systems.
