Do you do business in Slovakia or are you going to do a business, but you don’t not like the excessive bureaucracy or high business tax in Slovakia?


What about to start a business in the neighboring country – e.g. in Hungary. The corporate tax rate is 9% (compared to our 21%) and the setting up a business is fast and unpretentious process thanks to the electronical communication with authorities. Moreover, you no longer have to worry about entering the Hungarian market because of the language barrier. So, what do you think? Are you in but you don’t know how and where to start? Let’s participate on pilot workshops of the Crossing Bridges with the Help of Ambassadors’ (CORD)’ project, organized by the Association of Lecturers and Careers Advisors (ALKP) along with project partners. Pilot workshops are the tangible outcome of the CORD project implemented the Interreg V-A Slovakia-Hungary Cooperation Programme.
