Hungary prepares for tax reshufle

Hungary will cut the tax rate on interest income, dividend income and capital gains from sale of shares to 16% from January next year in line with plans to introduce flat-rate taxation, daily Világgazdaság reported citing an unnamed “reliable” source.

Currently, interest income and capital gains from sale of shares are subject to a 20% tax.

The dividend tax is 25% for unlisted and 10% for listed companies. The government also aims to end tax exemption on the minimum wage, which has led to rampant tax evasion, the paper said. (BBJ)
