“Hungarian firms tend to determine increasingly strict deadlines, leading to many clients asking for delays, which may become a challenge for companies in case of an economic downturn, according to a report by debt management firm Intrum,” reports The Budapest Business Journal. In a recent survey Intrum questioned business heads from 29 different European companies, 450 of these were from Hungary. They report that on average Hungarian firms give an 11-day deadline for B2C transactions, and 24 days for B2B ones, which is the most lenient deadlines compared ot rest of Europe – 31 days are given to public sector organisations. “The shortening of the determined deadlines is connected to the improvement of the payment morale of consumers …” says Intrum.
