VAT Cut Suggested On Home Food Deliveries In Hungary
Food delivery company Wolt is asking Finance Minister Mihály Varga to cut the 27% VAT on take-away food provided by restaurants to 5%, which is the rate for eating-in, the home delivery food service company said on Thursday.

Home delivery has recently become almost the exclusive source of income for restaurants, Wolt underlined.

In the present situation, distinguishing between foods consumed in restaurants and home delivery is no longer justified, the company wrote.

The Guild of Hosts and owners of 500 restaurants joined the initiative proposed by Wolt.
