Hungarian fiscal representative within the network Tax Representative Alliance

The Tax Representative Alliance (TRA) is an association of VAT specialists from several countries: accountants, lawyers and tax advisors who can handle the VAT affairs of foreign groups and businesses as tax representatives in their states. As the Hungarian representative for TRA since 2017, ITL Group is proud to offer support on all VAT matters (from registration to returns, payments and more) in one or more European countries.

We provide cross-border VAT representation and VAT advisory services. In particular, we can coordinate the VAT registration of a company in several European countries and, subsequently, monthly or quarterly compliance. For the client, it’s advantageous that they can have only one point of contact with us if preferred, and then we handle their VAT affairs in other European countries with our Tax Representative Alliance (“TRA”) network colleagues.
