Hungary: Proposed temporary reduction of VAT rate of 5%
A bill introduced by the Hungarian government would amend the value added tax (VAT) law to provide that effective 2021, the rate of VAT on certain dwellings would be 5%.
Eligible residential units (either to be built or already existing in a multi-unit residential building with a total net floor space not exceeding 150 square metres) generally would qualify for the 5% rate of VAT.
The VAT rate of 5% would also apply to detached houses having a total net floor space not exceeding 300 square metres.
The reduced VAT rate would be effective 1 January 2021 and would apply through 31 December 2022.
