  • there is no need for a lawyer to conduct the procedure

Steps in the procedure:

Step 1.:

The opening of simplified voluntary liquidation shall be reported to the National Tax and Customs Administration of Hungary on form   ’T201T’.

Step 2.:

The tax authority will notify the registry court of the notification electronically, which will then publish a notice in the Companies’ Gazette on this basis.
