How does it work?

Foreign companies that are not registered in Hungary are eligible to apply for a VAT refund. According to the new EU Directive 2008/9/EC which came into effect on January 1, 2010, enterprises registered in other EU member states must apply for a VAT refund at their local tax administration offices and follow the VAT refund procedures required in their home country. However, sometimes the procedures gets “stuck”, normally because the Hungarian tax authority wants to obtain more information on the nature of the VAT reclaim. The language obstacle and the lack of knowledge of the Hungarian VAT law may make your VAT refund process very difficult. FirmaX can help you with your VAT reclaim. We can assist you during the entire VAT refund process and represent you in front of the Hungarian tax authority to assure that your VAT reclaim goes smoothly.

Businesses from outside the European Union need to send their VAT reclaim application and the relevant attachments to the competent Hungarian tax authority. FirmaX can grant assistance in the VAT refund process of third-country taxpayers and represent you in front of the Hungarian tax authority.

Private individuals may only request a VAT refund, if they purchase goods in Hungary to take to a non-EU country. The Hungarian customs authority is generally responsible for the VAT recovery procedures relating to private persons.
