Modified tax base for non-wage benefits and certain individually defined benefits

As of 1 January 2017, the tax base for certain individually defined benefits not qualifying as non-wage benefit, and for non-wage benefits, is calculated as 1.18 times the benefit amount, pursuant to Act CXVII of 1995 on the Personal Income Tax. Earlier, the multiplier applied was 1.19. As for promotions, the amendment is relevant for cheap promotional gifts, giveaways, and corporate gifts, in which case the basis for calculating the personal income tax is the normal market value of the product/services times a multiplier of 1.18, as of January 2017.
