Tax Alert No 5/2015: Changes in the competent tax offices in Poland will be probably postponed.
On 3rd December 2015 the draft of the amendment to the Act on tax administration was submitted to the Polish parliament. The amendment concerns among others the date of changing the competences of tax authorities. We informed you about this issue in Tax Alert dated 27 November 2015. According to the new project this change will occur not on 1st January 2016 as it was initially planned but on 1st July 2016. The aim of the above is to give more time for the Polish tax authorities to prepare for the upcoming changes.
The discussed project has not been enacted yet. However, bearing in mind that it was prepared by the deputies of the party which has majority in the Polish parliament, it expected that it will be soon passed and signed by the President.
The alert presents the issues that we believe may be of interest to you. The information in the alert is of a general nature and it does not cover all changes resulting from the amendment of the VAT law. Before making any decision or action, as well as in case of any questions or concerns, please contact one of our tax advisors on +48222503100 (email:firstname.lastname@example.org).
