Erzsébet vouchers’ turnover reaches HUF 141 bln in 2014
Turnover of Erzsébet food vouchers exceeded HUF 141 bln last year, up from HUF 127.6 bln in 2013 and HUF 83.7 bln in 2012, daily Magyar Nemzet said on Saturday citing an official of the Hungarian National Foundation for Recreation.
The head of the foundation's board Zoltán Guller said the turnover largely depended on tax benefits the state was offering for the vouchers. He noted that some 8% of retail food purchases were paid with the vouchers last year. The vouchers are an element of Hungary's unified national voucher system, introduced in 2012.
