e-Invoicing Hungary


New regulations on e-Invoicing come into force in Hungary

The world of e-invoicing and its international regulations are constantly changing. Starting from the 1st of April 2020, the tax authority in Hungary will accept only the new XML version 2.0, and reject all invoices without processing sent through the current version 1.1.
Be aware: The penalties for non-compliance can generate high fines for your company.

Besides the layout change, the NAV announced to eliminate the current limit for invoices (over HUF 100.000 in VAT), which means affected businesses must declare ALL their invoices. This change will become mandatory starting from 1st July 2020.

Changes in NAV XML Version 2.0

With the new version 2.0, seven technical layout changes have to be taken into account in your system, of which five points affect not only the generation of the XML but also concerne the appropriate data. The following fields are affected:

  • modificationIndex
    gapless sequential numbering of invoice chain
