Non-operating companies owe HUF 1,444 bln in back taxes
Hungarian companies that are no longer operating owed back taxes of HUF 1,444 billion at the end of March, business daily Napi Gazdaság said on Thursday. The taxes are owed by more than 95,000 companies that are under mandatory or voluntary liquidation or whose tax number has been cancelled. More than 50,000 companies under mandatory liquidation owe HUF 1,237 billion in back taxes. The paper noted that the tax numbers of almost 11,000 companies had been suspended since the start of 2012 because they failed to submit documentation on their bases of operation. Of these, more than 8,000 were removed from the company register.
