GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT COMPANY FORMATION
In Hungary only a qualified attorney-at-law is entitled to proceed in the course of company formation. Agencies, consultants, accountants and 'legal advisors' without bar qualification are not allowed to represent you at the company court to register your company. If you are looking for a qualified law firm to form your company instead of unqualified agencies and other intermediaries, then you are at the right place. If you do not wish to get into trouble, our advice is to avoid unqualified service providers who are not authorized to register company in Hungary and not authorized to provide legal advise in terms of company formation.
Our Law Firm is registered at the Hungarian Bar Association under registration number 4190. We are qualified and licensed to proceed in the course of company registration at the company court. If you are browsing on other websites offering company formation services in Hungary but you cannot find the name of the law firm and the bar association registration number on the site, you can be sure, that it is not a website of a qualified law firm. If for some reason you do not wish to use our services in the course of the registration of your company, we strongly advise you – for the protection of your own interest - to have it dealt directly with another licensed, bar registered Attorney-at-Law like us and not by agencies or similar intermediaries.

The limited liability company (LLC) is the most popular type of legal entity in Hungary.

This type of legal entity is ideal for businesses that want to expand their operations to Hungary without setting up a new legal entity.
