Hungary Publishes Real Time Reporting Regulation

June 11, 2018 Andrew Decker

On June 1st, "Decree No. 2/2018 (1 June) of the Minister of Finance" was published in the Hungarian Gazette. The regulation, previously released in draft form earlier this year, provides the basis for the new real time electronic reporting obligation in Hungary which is scheduled to go into effect on July 1. As previously announced, data from electronic invoices on domestic B2B sales where VAT exceeds 100,000 HUF must be transmitted to the Hungarian Tax Authority in real time. Additionally, data from non-electronic invoices of the same character must be submitted electronically to the Tax Authority within 5 days. Over the past several weeks, the Tax Authority has also released a number of updates to the technical requirements relating to the electronic submission of invoice data.
