Since a tax relief on research and development activity was introduced in 2016, relevant regulations have been amended on a yearly basis.

Some time ago we wrote about changes pertaining to preparing financial statements and submitting them to a relevant court register, mainly about the fact that as of March 2018 they can be filed only electronically (e.g. in PDF format); yet, this form, simple as it may seem, has caused a lot of trouble, primarily due to the lack of personal identification numbers (PESEL) of board members and the lack of electronic signatures. Since filing financial statements online has proven to be troublesome, we may only guess that as of 1 October 2018 we are going to face a genuine disaster in this respect. Why is this so?
