Hungary upstream fiscal summary

Report summary

Hungary’s concession-based fiscal regime is relatively simple. The main elements include a royalty, corporate income tax and an additional profits tax (Energy Suppliers tax). Royalty is a biddable term but the government has set a minimum rate. The Energy Suppliers tax has the same tax base as corporate income tax resulting in a marginal tax rate of 40%. Both are ring-fenced at the country level. There are also local business and indirect taxes. There is no state participation.
