VAT in Poland

When you start your business activity in Poland, there is a big Chance that you will have to pay and report VAT. When it comes to VAT in Poland, most probable scenario (to simplify) is that you will have to report VAT on a monthly basis, up to 25th day of the following month. 

That requirement comes with some further obligations, starting with evidence allowing for proper preparation of VAT declaration. This evidence should be in Polish and should be quite detailed, listing many information from each sales and purchase invoice. Lately, there is new obligation to be fulfilled – Standard Audit File, which some of the companies are required to file. In future, it is planned that all companies will have to file it. Besides proper evidence of VAT transactions, there are other difficulties. One of them mentioned above – that you should keep your evidence in Polish, is actually wider issue. VAT Act is also in Polish, and there is no official translation to English. Last but not least, VAT regulations change very often, many times per year.
