Finding English speaking accountant in Budapest

Hello. I am moving to Budapest as a self employed management trainer. I am looking for a reliable English speaking accountant who can manage my tax affairs. Can anybody recommend someone. Thanks a lot!

Personal recommendations are ideal. Had experiences with less than competent accountants. But if that fails, there is also the business directory here with a list of accountants if you have not already looked it over (no, I have not tried any, sorry, and our account does not speak English):

I've just opened a Kft and have an English speaking accountant. She seems fine.
It's still early days though (less than 2 months), so not comfortable recommending her yet - unless you get stuck and want to take a leap of faith (let me know).
Not sure if she's good value, but some accountants quotes I got seemed really high, 100 Euro or more a month.
Of course costs may be different if you're self employed rather than company accounts, as ours need to do payroll etc.

20,000 to 30,000 Forint a month is not atypical i you have a lot of billing and payroll for the accountant to do.

If you do not have much billing, then you can often negotiate a lower monthly rate with the accountant.

If you are a small business with not many business deductions, consider registering for a Simplified Entrepreneurial Tax (EVA), or for Fixed-Rate Tax of Low Tax-Bracket Enterprises and on Small Business Tax (KATA), which means you do little or no accounting, and just pay a fixed amount each month for all your taxes.

Thanks a lot for your help. I will follow up.

Much obliged for your advice.
