Formation and application for a statistical code
The HCSO determines or modifies statistical registration number as described in Article 38(2) of Act CLV of 2016 on Official Statistics. The formation of statistical registration number is carried out on the basis of KIM Decree No. 21/2012 (IV. 16.) on the Elements and Nomenclatures of the Statistical registration number.
In order to reduce the administrative burden on customers, the HCSO receives data electronically and directly from the authorities keeping the official registers through a one-stop-shop system and automatically generates the statistical code of the entities from them.
Does the HCSO generate a statistical code for all entities?
HCSO will only generate a statistical code for entities that have a tax number, provided that all the data required for the generation of the statistical code is received by HCSO via the one-stop-shop system from the authority required to keep official records depending on the type of entity. If any of the data is invalid or missing, the statistical code cannot be generated. The entity will not be registered in the HCSO register.
