The Parliament amended the Law on Economic Chambers on November 21, 2011. The amendment requires that all corporate and individual companies – whether chamber members or not – shall apply for registration at the competent Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Also, a contribution of HUF 5,000 shall be paid until 31 March in each year to the Chamber.
For newly established businesses registration shall be done within 5 working days following their incorporation; for the already operating businesses it had to be done until March 1, 2012.
The one-time registration obligation and the payment obligation of the contribution to the Chamber for 2012 do not apply to undertakings which were suspended permanently on and after January 1, 2012.
