GREEDY HUNGARIAN BUDGET

VAT is highest in Hungary.

If we join the European Union next year with the VAT rates intended to be used this means that Hungary will lead the list in this respect as the normal rate will be 23 pc while in other member states this is between 15 pc and 25 pc. In Sweden and Denmark the normal VAT is 25 pc but taxpayers have to pay generally less than in Hungary. In preferential rates Hungary leads the list after Finland where a higher preferential rate (17 pc) has been adopted. It seems certain that Hungarian decision makers have been inspired by greed and not by the wish to ’harmonize’ Hungarian taxes with those in the European Union.
