New Opportunities for Foreign Businesses: VAT Refund in Hungary After EU Court Decision

  • Foreign businesses can now request VAT refunds in Hungary without a Hungarian tax number
  • The EU Court of Justice ruled that foreign businesses can submit documents in the appeal stage for VAT refund requests
  • This ruling will lead to a more liberal approach by tax authorities in ongoing and future refund procedures
  • The strict approach of Hungarian tax authorities in the past hindered foreign businesses from getting VAT refunds
  • The EU Court of Justice emphasized the importance of content over form in processing VAT refund requests
  • The ruling also applies to domestic taxpayers during tax audits, allowing them to refer to the decision for document submission deadlines
  • The deadline for submitting additional documents for VAT refund requests is not considered as a forfeiture of rights
