Real estate projects

If you are planning to start a real estate project in Hungary, you are required to obtain certain obligatory permits to be allowed to do so. Upon starting the project you will first need a building permit to begin with the construction of the project. The building permit is often conditional on the approval of the neighbours, whose approval needs to be obtained before the building permit is issued. Upon completion of the construction, an occupancy permit is required in which the authority certifies the completion of the construction.

Regulated activities

In Hungary, there are some business activities that may only be performed if you hold the respective permit entitling you to do so. Such most common business activities are for example opening a pub, a music club, a restaurant or a real estate agency. FirmaX can help you to identify whether your business requires a permit and, if yes, to advise you on how such permit may be obtained.

Operation permit

Independently of what business you are in, when performing a retail activity, your business needs an operational permit. The operation permit is released by the local government and certifies that you are allowed to perform retail activities in your business premises.
