You, as a logistics partner, will be able to provide a comprehensive service to your partner, including both the logistics service and the relevant tax administrator. 

Why is a tax representative important?

In the case of foreign (EU-based) undertakings, the Company is entitled to appoint a Hungarian tax representative for obtaining the Hungarian VAT number

The tax representative provides assistance in the field of tax services while minimising tax risks. The tax representative is not jointly and severally liable for the tax obligations of the Company arising in Hungary; therefore, no bank guarantees or bank deposits are required in this case.

Why is a financial representative important?

In the case of third country (non-EU) enterprises, appointing a Hungarian financial representative is mandatory for obtaining the Hungarian VAT number and submitting the tax returns. 

The financial representative assumes joint and several liability for the Hungarian tax obligations of the foreign Company, including the following:

  • compliance with the invoicing regulations, 
  • maintaining the relevant records, 
  • compliance with obligations related to the Electronic Road Freight Control System (EKÁER), 
  • submission of tax returns and payment of tax liabilities, 
  • responding to any enquiries by the tax authority, 
  • participation in any tax audits.
