Company portal registration and representation in Hungary

We can help you navigate your way in the maze of Company Portal (“Cégkapu”) registration, administration, maintenance and keeping up to date with all related information.

After 1 January 2018, Hungarian companies will only be able to communicate with the government electronically. The channel of such electronic communication will be the “Cégkapu” (Company portal) service, which means that, for example, all tax returns must be submitted by economic associations via this portal.

In fact, Hungarian companies will have to conduct ALL communication with the state agencies, authorities and offices with the use of the Company portal. Therefore, this means much more than a one-time notification of an e-mail address. Since all communication related to administrative and other official procedures will take place through this channel, this will require the continuous management of the Company portal storage space. It will be very important, therefore, who will manage, supervise and maintain the Company portal interface.

MAZARS offers assistance to Hungarian companies in performing the mandatory Company portal registration, and if needed, can also provide continuous Company portal representation for them.

IMPORTANT!

Company portal representation is not an accounting, legal or tax advisory service, but an administrative-type of assistance. MAZARS assists businesses after the “Cégkapu” registration by monitoring the information received from the authorities, in communication, as well as any further administrative tasks (e.g. the registration of “Cégkapu” administrators), and in keeping the “Cégkapu”-related data up to date. In the course of the “Cégkapu” registration, MAZARS can designate one or several persons as “Cégkapu” administrators, who will proceed with the administration of specific types of procedures of the company. For example, in connection with the tax returns, it is expedient to designate the accountant of the economic association as a “Cégkapu” administrator.
