Why Hungary

Company in Hungary is an excellent decision for setting-up a traditional European resident structure. Registration process is straightforward. VAT gets registered almost immediately with company registration.

Hungary is extremely interesting for royalty structures and IP holding! 50% of income derived from royalties of any kind is exempt of income tax. That makes effective corporate income tax only 5% (for income less than 500 million HUF, which is about EUR 1,6 million) or 9,5% (for income more than 500 million HUF). Moreover, royalties are exempt of 2% local business tax, unlike trading income for example. Further after, withholding tax on paid out royalties is 0%.

What are the opportunities?

  • Corporate income tax 10% (for income less than 500 million HUF) or 19% (for income more than 500 million HUF)
  • 50% of income derived from royalties are exempt from tax
  • 0% withholding tax on dividends if paid out to foreign companies
  • Transparent taxation and accounting rules
  • EU VAT is obtained immediately!
