Company Formation in Hungary
Hungary is an extremely favorable tax district for foreigners to set up a company in. Ever since being accepted into the European Union in 2004, Hungary has carried out a proactive program of encouraging foreign investment and boosting its economy. To that end, corporate tax has been slashed and is the lowest in Europe at a mere 9%. And dividend payouts have zero withholding tax on them if paid to a non-resident corporation or a maximum of 15% if paid to a non-resident individual, modified by tax treaties. Setting up a company is straightforward and does not require directors and shareholders to be citizens or even residents of Hungary.
