Strategizing International Tax Best Practices – by Keith Brockman

Hungary’s tax risk system

The Hungarian government has submitted draft proposals for the 2016 budget.

Two important provisions are provided for review and advance planning:

  • Tax risk rating system of “risky” or “reliable” with corollary changes to tax authority deadlines and penalties.
  • Changes to IFRS, from Hungarian GAAP, for 2016.

EY’s Global Tax Alert provides additional details of these proposals:

The risk rating system is becoming more of a norm, versus an exception, in various jurisdictions.  Accordingly, MNE’s should review its tax risk policies/framework to ensure a favorable “reliable” rating is achieved.
