The representatives of the Guild of Hungarian Restaurateurs (MVI) and the National Tax and Customs Administration (NAV) have already sat down many times to simplify the rules of tip management. As a result of these harmonisation talks, the regulation was modified at the end of last year.

NAV told that as of 1 January 2021 the management of tips qualifies as a special operating characteristic in the cases when the money in the cash storage units plus the sales invoiced by the cash register add up to a different sum than they should during the place’s opening hours. The new rules also make it possible that if tips as special operating characteristics generate a difference in the sums mentioned above, the bar or restaurant is only obliged to restore the balance of sales and the money accepted by the place at the end of the day, at the time of the cash register closure.

Thanks to the new rules, the operators of cash registers have the opportunity to delay the issuing of tip payment receipts throughout the day until the time of cash register closure. When performing cash register related inspections, NAV can examine whether the sum of money in the till matches with the balance of the receipts issued. //
