On 13 July 2018, the Act of 1 March 2018 on Countering Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Journal of Laws of 2018, item. 723, hereinafter referred to as “the Act”) entered into force in Poland. The goal behind this regulation was the complete and correct transposition of Directive (EU) 2015/849 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 May 2015 on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purposes of money laundering or terrorist financing. However, certain provisions of the Act will enter into force only after 18 months after the date of its announcement, i.e. 13 October 2019, and will materially affect the operation of many businesses.

We have already written a lot, both here and in national journals, about the importance of audit services, their meaning for businesses, the cooperation of management boards or supervisory bodies with auditors, and the qualities of a good auditor. Now it is time to say something about how this auditor (a statutory auditor or an audit firm) should be chosen.

As of July, enterprises with a headcount exceeding 250 were the first to have entered the Employee Capital Plans and they started enrolling their employees to the long-term saving scheme. Therefore, it is a good idea to answer the question what financial institutions will manage the PPK and what principles of withdrawing funds from employees’ accounts will be used? I encourage you to read my article.

In early October 2018, the Economic and Financial Affairs Council of the EU adopted draft legislation introducing temporary solutions for settling cross-border transactions (known as “quick fixes”) for VAT purposes. They are supposed to be applied as of 1 January 2020 and stay in force until a new definitive VAT system has been adopted. In Germany, formal arrangements for implementing the EU regulations were launched on 8 May 2019 as a summary draft act including this year’s tax amendments.

Organisations employing more than 250 persons were the first to join the scheme, and they automatically enrolled their employees aged 18-55 in the PPK. What are PPKs and what should you know about them? I encourage you to read my article.

More than a year has passed since the introduction of revolutionary changes in preparing and submitting annual financial statements. Today, as many companies registered in the NCR (in particular those where foreigners participate) continue to have arrears in submitting their annual financial statements, we would like to take a closer look at the weapons used by registry courts to enforce reporting obligations.
