Fiscal representation – more than a mere obligation
It is known that for third country (non-EU) companies a Hungarian fiscal representative must be appointed in order to obtain a Hungarian VAT number.
Thus, it is mandatory to use fiscal representation services for a third country company, however it is important to choose the right provider for such services. The task of the fiscal representative is to ensure that the Client settles all its’ Hungarian tax obligations, including invoicing regulations, keeping accounting records, EKAER obligations, submission of tax returns and payment of related taxes, answering the queries and handling tax audits initiated by the Hungarian Tax Authority at the Client.

It is important to know that since the fiscal representative is jointly and severally liable for the tax obligations of the represented company in Hungary, according to industry practice, all financial representatives ask their customers for a bank guarantee or bank deposit as collateral against possible damages.
