Most strange.

I went into the OTP branch in Zalaegerszeg within the last 1 and a half months and they wanted my tax number. I presented my home ownership papers, passport, UK drivers license and I had a Hungarian with me to help with translation, a bit of cash but without a tax number they/he was not interested.

I am going to try another bank tomorrow.

I didn't have my tax number when I opened my account in Lenti unless it is on my purchase documents and I have not spotted it ! I do have my tax number now though as it is on the documents / invoice for my land tax payment.

Ah….. when they asked me for my UK tax number, I explained that we don't generally have them but we have a national insurance number instead…. she was happy to take that !!

I explained that as well. I even showed the suit with a hole my national insurance card.

So I am thinking it is more than likely the individual as well. I am going over that way shortly and will make a point of going into the same bank, without an interpreter and see if I can speak to someone else. If they will open the bank account on the details some have mentioned on here then I will actively seek out the suit with an a hole and see what he has to say about that.

We have had "hole in a suit", "suite with a hole" and "suit with an a hole" - what are these please?

a hole wearing a suit = arsehole wearing a suit.

I had a feeling it might be something like that.

Thought "arsehole" was a swear word and should not be tolerated on this site ?

And may, just may, indicate an attitude that does not bode well for its originator in this Country.

Maybe the a hole in a suite is an active member of this forum!

Anyway. K&H account opened in Zalaegerszeg. They DID ask of a tax number. I supplied my NI card and address card/reg card, passport. NI card accepted and account opened without any drama.
