State Audit Office scheduled to audit parties, tax office, treasury in first half of 2018
The State Audit Office (ASZ) has submitted to parliament its schedule of audits of Hungary’s political parties, party and other foundations, the tax office and the state treasury to be performed in the first half of 2018, ASZ said on Friday.
In its audit of the National Tax and Customs Office (NAV), ASZ will examine several of the office’s activities, including those pertaining to the corporate tax, according to the schedule.
When ASZ audits the state treasury, it will look into the treasury’s handling of grants paid out to entities outside the general government.
ASZ will also look into the accounting of financial assets used in organising Hungary’s referendum on migrant quotas held on October 2 last year as well as the use of funds spent on by-elections.
The audit office is also scheduled to begin looking into the finances of Hungary’s emergency care system.
It will also audit the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) and state-owned energy company MVM.
ASZ said it would also assess the draft of the 2019 budget if it is completed in the first half of next year.
