Hungary rolls out e-system to control goods movements


On January 1, a new electronic system to control road transportation of goods was launched in Hungary. The measure is designed to boost transparency in the movement of goods, combat food product related fraud, which may endanger human health, and reduce tax evasion. This new system, developed by the Tax and Customs Authority and based on the generation of a e-document (XML) and its remote submission, is designated EKÁER (Electronic Trade and Transport Control System) and must now be used for submissions to the administration.

The EKÁER system is currently in a test phase, scheduled for completion by March 1. In other words, as of that date, taxpayers who do not comply with these rules will be sanctioned by the Hungarian authorities. We must bear in mind that the measure affects not only domestic goods, but also those transported from Hungary to any European Union country.

With the implementation of this e-document, the route of the products and their features (name and quantity of the goods, recipient, sender, etc. ) is recorded. Although there are some exceptions, in general it is necessary to notify the authorities of the following activities:

  • Purchase or importation of products from any country in the European Union into Hungary. In this case, the recipient of the goods is responsible for submitting the declaration.
  • Sale or export of items from Hungarian territory to other European Union member countries. The sender or shipper will be responsible for notifying the authorities.
  • Initial sales of taxable products to end users in the domestic trading area, when carried out with vehicles subject to tolls (i.e. vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tons). In the case of road freight of hazardous goods, it is mandatory to declare them even when they are not transported with a vehicle liable to tolls (weighing less than 3.5 tons). In this type of activity, the shipper is responsible for filing the declaration.

Once the goods have been declared, the Tax and Customs Authority provides the EKÁER code. Then, the person receiving it shall notify the carrier by any means, so that they have the identifier to hand during the review by the authority.


 The EDICOM solution

To facilitate compliance with this obligation, EDICOM has adapted its EDI platform to the EKÁER system requirements. This solution generates the e-document with the XML schema set forth in the regulation and enables direct connection with the Hungarian administration by means of a secure web service connection. Additionally, messages are integrated from the ERP, so they are generated and communicated automatically.
