FAQs

First of all, we are the only provider in Hungary that specializes in working with foreign business owners in the small and medium-size sector. Our clients have a lot of special requirements: they usually do not speak Hungarian, are not very familiar with the local market, and they travel a lot – and at the same time, they are used to doing business in a convenient and professional way. Often the small company they set up in Hungary is only a part of a bigger international business venture, or else it may be a family business that is entirely new for them. With 15+ years’ experience working in this niche, we have become experts at finding great solutions for you.

Absolutely not. In fact, it is precisely start-ups and small businesses that can make ideal use of our flexible business solutions and business incubator options. Once the company is successful and grows, it can support its own internal structure with specialists and assistants covering every angle. At the beginning, however, it is crucial that the director should focus on the actual business – and leave the administration and daily operation to us.

An apostille is an internationally recognized way of authentication. You are most probably to need an apostille when you are setting up a company in Hungary as a foreign investor through a power of attorney, without travelling to Hungary. However, the method of attestation required will depend on your country of residence and on the purpose of the document. Our colleagues will always check what kind of attestation you need depending on your project, but you can already learn more here.

When transporting merchandise internationally, especially from outside the EU, you might be required to provide additional proof to the Customs Office for letting the shipment enter the country. This may include submitting the invoice based on which the delivery is being made. However, for that purpose, the invoice must be attested by the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce – after which it will be referred to as a certified invoice or a commercial invoice.

A certificate of origin proves where goods were created or produced. It may be used for various customs related process in the country of destination, for tenders, insurance, or export financing, just to name a few purposes. It can be issued by the Chamber of Commerce based on various documents, including a certified invoice for the sale.

The name, logo, or slogan of your business can distinguish your company from your competitors, and as such they are considered trademarks. Registering them prevents others from copying your trademark and lets customers recognize your brand. The process may take 6-12 months, but in the end your trademark will be registered retroactively, for the date your application was submitted. You can learn more about the trademark registration process here.
