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 This will be withdrawn; instead tax registered businesses will be required to report the issuance of qualifying invoices within 24 hours.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.
