Legal Process of the Company Formation

Once we have discussed details and needs of your company as well as your business goals, we’ll prepare every required document for submission. The company registration process can be done in person or via Power of Attorney (POA). Please note that POA might not be possible for some nations’ citizens. Contact us for more information!

  • Founder(s) of the company must sign the company’s constitutive document, which, together with some other documents must be countersigned by a Hungarian attorney.
  • It usually takes no longer than 2 business days to receive the official statement of the Company Registration. 

Hungarian and English Documentation

By the Hungarian law, all documents must be submitted in Hungarian. However, we’ll provide you with an English copy of all documents, translated by a certified translator. We can also provide different language translations if requested.

Local and EU VAT number

Once your company is established by the act of the Court of Registration, it’ll receive its Local and International VAT (tax) number as well as the statistical code. Unlike in many other EU countries, receiving the International VAT number is immediate and comes with no extra cost.

Recommending a Bank for your profile

It is required by the law to open a bank account for your company right after receiving the official statement of the Company Registration. After assessing your business goals and plans we can help you with selecting the best offer for your needs. Please note that in most cases personal presence of the managing director is required to open a bank account.

Chamber of Commerce Registration

Once your company is registered, it must sign up at the Chamber of Commerce and pay an annual flat rate fee. All of our Company Formation Packages includes this option, so you don’t have to worry about it.

Delivery Proxy Service

If the Founder does not have an official Hungarian address, a Delivery Proxy with an official Hungarian address must be registered and included in the Company Register. The Delivery Proxy will be responsible for all the official mails to be delivered within 15 days from receiving. This service is included in every package by default.

Registered Address Service

Every Hungarian company is required to have at least one official Hungarian address (headquarter). As part of our services, every package includes this option with a required permission given by the property owner.

Personal Assistance with Banking

It is required by the law to open a bank account for your company right after receiving the official statement of the Company Registration. After assessing your business goals and plans we can help you with selecting the best offer for your needs.

Some banks started to allow online bank account opening with video calls, however, this might not be available for all citizenships. Please contact us for further details! 

If you select our Virtual Office or Full package we’ll personally accompany you during the entire process. When choosing this option expect a pre-arranged appointment in the selected bank office. Pre-arranged bank account opening usually takes about 2 hours. 

In some rare cases it is possible to open a bank account under a POA, however it has some extra costs as you’ll need to submit official copies of your documents published by your country’s authorities. It can certainly make the entire process a lot longer and many times significantly more expensive as well.
Please contact us for further details if you cannot make a single-day trip to Hungary.
