Blog

The RSM Poland Blog is a practical guide to taxes and business. Written by advisors, auditors and experienced consultants, this space is dedicated to all those who make business decisions on a day-to-day basis. The blog is addressed to entrepreneurs, Tax Managers, CFOs and Chief Accountants: it’s been designed to serve professionals in areas of financial reporting, accountancy, taxes and corporate finance.  We would like to use it as a tool for communicating some of the most interesting tax and economic topics, discussing issues related to incorporation and organisation of companies, touch on transfer pricing and reporting in accordance with Polish and international standards, as well as to study other key notions commonly related to running and managing a business.

Our posts will be making reference to important and current issues that are typical in a company's day-to-day dealings. We will be discussing problems most frequently faced by taxpayers, accountants and financial personnel. You will be provided with information that is of interest not only to entrepreneurs operating in Poland, but also to foreigners delegated to work here, as well as foreigners who are still considering investment in the country upon the Vistula. Current events will be discussed in the context of local, European and international regulations bringing shape to tax law and reporting standards. 

We will do our best to have even the most complex subjects explained in a concise and practical way, using language that is free from legal and financial speak.

We trust our blog to serve as a source of information and provide support to all those who seek to pursue their business objectives in a safe and effective manner.

Feel free to follow our posts, comment and ask questions.

Keep calm and write on!

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.

The Cash flow statement is an element of financial statements. However, not all entities applying the provisions of the Accounting Act are obliged to prepare a cash flow statement.

On Monday, 1 July, the Employee Capital Plans were rolled out. 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.

We are presenting the next article from the “VAT quick fixes” series. Last time, we analysed changes introduced in the call-off stock procedure. This time, we are going to focus on the amendment of chain transactions.

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.

As the Council of Ministers recently adopted a draft amendment of the VAT Act, you need to take into account the fact that as of 1 January 2020 large companies, i.e. those with the average annual headcount of 250 persons or with an annual turnover exceeding EUR 50 million and with a balance sheet total of at least EUR 43 million, will have to submit the new SAF-T_VAT file. Other taxpayers, including local government units, will be obliged to submit the new file as of 1 July 2020.

In previous posts, we presented a handful of basic information that may be useful for foreign investors planning to start their business in Poland. Undoubtedly, a crucial thing here is the the choice of the legal form of such business, as we discussed e.g.: here. The next big step on the way towards developing a business in Poland is to hire employees. This, in turn, involves an entire range of additional obligations for the employer, such as occupational health and safety, personal income tax and social insurance.
