Scope

– To further accelerate the provision of basic financial services to under-banked consumers, in September 2016 the Hungarian government directed banks to compulsorily offer basic bank accounts in compliance with an EU directive. The government decree outlines the services available to account holders, and caps the monthly fee at 1.5% of the minimum wage, or HUF1,575 ($5.62). Following the central bank’s mandate to offer basic bank accounts, all major banks – including OTP Bank, Budapest Bank and K&H Bank (a subsidiary of KBC Bank) – now offer low-cost basic bank accounts. Additionally, in October 2016, the government launched a new account-switching service to make switching current accounts faster and easier.
– The Hungarian instant payment service is scheduled to go live in July 2019. The Hungarian financial services provider GIRO Zrt will implement the platform in partnership with Nets A/S group. The system will process credit transfers and other payments within a maximum of five seconds on a 24/7/365 basis. Through the new system it will be possible to initiate payments of up to HUF10m ($35,707.49), and make payments using the recipient’s email address, mobile phone number or tax identification number, without having to know their bank account number.
– To develop a strong payment infrastructure and encourage card-based payments, the Hungarian government launched a POS installation program in December 2016. The program was developed by the Ministry for National Economy, with HUF2.4tn ($8.6bn) being allocated towards its implementation. As part of the program, the government agreed to offer merchants HUF80,000 ($285.66) per terminal for the procurement and installation of new POS terminals, on the condition that they operate them for at least two years. Furthermore, the government launched the second phase of the program in 2017, extending the subsidy program with a target to install 30,000 more POS terminals over the next few years.
