Tourism

Extending tourism sector wage support and payroll tax exemptions to hotel service businesses and travel organizers will mean an additional monthly HUF 20 billion in relief for the sector, the head of the Hungarian Tourism Agency said in a podcast, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Zoltán Guller noted that the broader 50% wage subsidy and payroll tax exemption is in force from December 1 until January 31, 2021. The support is conditional on maintaining headcount.

Guller said tourism sector relief so far as well as in the coming months would exceed HUF 800 bln.
