9% corporate tax

From 1 January, 2017, corporate tax will be as low as 9%. Corporate tax up till now was already the lowest in Europe (with 10%). The new 9% corporate tax makes Hungary a top destination for not only small and medium-sized companies but also for corporate entities.

Tax allowance and tax reduction for start-up companies

  • Start-up companies get tax allowance if they have at least two employees AND if one of the employees is employed in research & development role.
  • Moreover, if you grant your workers a housing allowance to pay at least part of their accommodation, that can reduce your corporate income tax.
  • If you own a restaurant or café where there is live music, you can get another tax allowance for that. The tax allowance can be used to reclaim up to 50% of the net service cost of live music at your restaurant.

This way Hungary is becoming more and more attractive for investors.
