Excise duty consultancy and administration

The purpose of the excise regulation:

On 7th of June 2016, the Hungarian Parliament adopted the new excise regulation (Act LXVIII of 2016), which entry into force has been delayed several times. The mere fact that the date has been postponed more times already justifies that there have been such comprehensive changes, which are not simple to implement by either the authorities or the economic operators.

The primary and most important purpose of the new regulation is simplification, standardization, reduction of administrative burdens for economic operators, increasing the efficiency of electronization and tax collection, and to this end, the new regulation contains significant changes in content and structure.
