About us

Zsolt Nyári

Partner

My professional career began in 2001 with international audit and consultancy companies. Before launching my own business in 2015, I spent 12 years with Mazars Kft, leaving them as a senior taxation manger. In addition to domestic and international tax consultation projects I was involved with responsibility in due diligence projects, tax audits as well as successful proceedings with domestic and international courts. With regards to the latter, I regard the biggest success of my professional career to be the VAT case (C-563/12) won at the European Court, for which I was the project initiator.

I have been delivering presentations at tax conferences for over 10 years, have written a number of professional newspaper articles and blog posts, and have been a regular lecturer at the post-graduate training of certified accountants held by the Education Centre of the Hungarian Chamber of Auditors. Besides Hungarian, I also assist my clients in English and French.

I obtained my professional experience between 2008 and 2017 with international consultation enterprises by providing various types of tax consultation for large corporations belonging to international groups and Hungarian SMEs as a tax manager and later tax director. In addition to consultation, I dealt with transfer pricing, tax surveys, and was responsible for a large number of tax duties related to auditing. I used to lead compliance groups and represented my clients successfully in the course of several comprehensive tax audits and in the statutory proceedings following.

Since 2013, I have regularly delivered presentations at tax conferences, business breakfasts, and in the framework of internal and external trainings. Since 2017, I have worked in Hungarian and English as a tax expert of K-X Consulting Kft in the elaboration of solutions for our Clients.

Among my duties was the preparation and coordination of procedural changes in the law, preparation of provisory tax statement decisions, and preparation of documents relating to the appeals process against NAV decisions. In 2014, I finished my career at NAV with a ministerial award. During my time at the ministry, I was regularly published in professional publications. The final part of my career before I joined K-X Consulting was spent between 2014-2019 as a legal advisor at the Hungarian National Bank Chamber.

“Many years ago, after becoming disillusioned with consultants’ yes/no/it depends type standard, yet at the same time, rather pricey answers, we sought out a reliable person in the tax field, who, apart from having a stable professional background, would also be open to becoming acquainted with the specific features of our company’s course of business. We believe that only a person with this type of approach is able to propose real customised solutions. Zsolt Nyári is one of those few experts with confident professional knowledge who can add something extra to his expertise, something that we were looking for.
