Andersen appoints tax incentives & state aid director
Andersen Hungary announced the appointment of Edina Dobos as director responsible for tax incentives and state aid.
The appointment came into effect in February 2022.
Dobos has been working on state aid and tax benefits since 2004 and has been part of the Andersen team since 2021. Prior to that, as an associate at PwC and later Deloitte, she assisted a number of companies in obtaining funding based on individual government decisions or other grant schemes, including the preparation of feasibility studies, funding gap calculations, tender-related business plans, and R&D qualification applications, as well as grant drawdown.
She has significant experience in state aid competition law and European Commission procedures (notification and preliminary examination). In this context, as lead adviser, she successfully assisted a number of projects where the size or specificity of the aid required approval by the European Commission.
In addition to the corporate sector, Dobos also has significant experience in advising municipal and public authorities on projects and aid schemes.
"Our goal is to create Hungary's best state aid advisory practice. While there are many people in Hungary who do classical tender writing, there are far fewer who provide advice on state aid (e.g. compatibility with EU rules, specific support for priority projects, combination with tax incentives, etc.). We are striving to be, if not necessarily the biggest, then clearly the best in this field, while also aiming to break the dominance of the Big4," the recently appointed director said regarding the goals ahead for her team.
