Agreement is reached in relation to the adoption of the EU Directive on Global Minimum Tax

On 12 December 2022, the EU Member States have reached a unanimous agreement to implement the Directive on the global minimum taxation and advised the European Council to launch the formal adoption of the relevant Directive.

The Directive has to be transposed into member states’ national law by the end of 2023. From a Hungarian perspective, a significant development is that the scope of covered taxes for the purposes of the global minimum tax will likely include local business tax besides corporate income tax (resulting in a higher effective tax rate for Hungary and potentially lower top-up tax payable, if any). For more details on global minimum tax, please see our newsletter dated 10 March 2022.
