Official Government
Hungary is both a member of the European Union and a country
within the Schengen Area. For the past few years the Hungarian
economy has been showing a steady amount of growth, which
along with political stability, has gradually begun to put the
country on a par with the leading European states.
Hungary has made the transition from raw material manufacturer
and supplier of cheap labour, to a country of highly developed
industrial production and transport links, making it one of the
logistical centres of all Europe.
In early 2013 the Hungarian government introduced the program
of permanent residence in Hungary through investment in
government bonds for nationals of countries outside the EU. This
program offers investors more than just a guaranteed right to
permanent resident status in Europe (which gives significant
advantages both for the investor and for the members of his
family). There are new opportunities for business, and financial
and tax optimisation, due to tax incentives for those who have
become resident in Hungary through this government program.

Permanent residence
in Hungary means freedom
to live in and move around the
Schengen Area countries
Hungary is part of the EU and is a member of the Schengen Agreement. According to the European Union's Council
Directive 2003/109, third country nationals who have the status of permanent resident in one of the EU member
countries have the same rights as EU citizens, apart from the right to vote. This means that a permanent resident of
Hungary and his family will have the right to move freely within the Schengen Area, as well as the right to live and do
business in any of the 26 Schengen countries.
With the introduction of a uniform standard for the exchange of tax information (CRS), which was designed to create
a system for automatically sharing information about the owners of accounts and the “de-offshorisation” of assets,
more and more people are thinking about choosing a tax residence and maintaining privacy from CRS (with regards
to their first country).
Hungary offers opportunities for permanent residents to become a tax resident without living in Hungary. There are
no taxes on income earned outside of Hungary, there is no tax on dividends and inheritance, and the corporation tax
is 10-19%.
Becoming a tax resident in Hungary can seriously save on tax in the first country of citizenship.
And by using the services of Hungarian trusts, not only can you legally maintain the confidentiality of your assets, but
you can also declare them at the rate of 0% *
