Registration of companies in Hungary. Advantages of European jurisdiction
Hungary is not one of the so-called "classic offshore zones" and is a prestigious European jurisdiction. Among the key advantages of Hungary are the following:
- Low income tax rate
10% - until the tax base reaches 500,000,000 HUF (1.8 million EUR);
19% - more than 500,000,000 HUF (1.8 million EUR).
- Large number of double taxation treaties
At present, Hungary has concluded about 60 agreements on the avoidance of double taxation, including with the Russian Federation. This agreement establishes the following tax rates:
Dividends - 10%
Interest - 0%
Royalty - 0%
- Preferential treatment for R&D
If a Hungarian company is involved in activities related to research and development (R&D), then the direct costs associated with this are double deducted from the tax base.
Continental law operates in Hungary, based on written laws adopted in accordance with the Constitution, which was rewritten in 1989. All major obligations and rights of companies and citizens are based on laws passed by Parliament. The legal regulation of the activities of Hungarian enterprises is carried out on the basis of the Law on Business Companies No. 4 of 2006
