One of Hungary’s largest blood plasma trading companies – Plasma Expert Ltd. – was founded four years ago, and last year it already achieved a turnover of EUR 10.1 million (~HUF 3.6 billion), so it doubled its turnover in one year and quadrupled its profit: it showed a gain of EUR 2.3 million (~HUF 810 million). However, the actual owner is still wrapped in secrecy.
This company is the 100% owner of Plasma Expert, and this spring it was decided to take out a dividend of EUR 754 thousand (~HUF 268 million) from the profit generated so far.
Furthermore, free trade zones have their own tax systems and do not tax profits. This means that the owners do not have to pay tax on the profits made with the Hungarian plasma purchased and then exported at multiple prices.
