According to the Hungarian VAT laws of 2008, if you sell certain items to an individual customer, such as a foreign traveler, who does not reside in the EU, the customer is not required to pay VAT on the item. The tax can be handled in two ways:

  • The invoice does not include VAT, so the customer does not pay sales tax at the time of purchase.

  • The invoice includes VAT, and the customer pays the sales tax. In this case, the seller provides the customer with a VAT tax reimbursement sip along with the sales invoice. After the Hungarian customs office approves the reimbursement form, the customer can claim sales tax reimbursement.

You can identify the items in the invoice to include them in the tax reimbursement slip, and then print the slip along with the invoice.
