In years to come, RES should constitute one of the fastest growing areas of economy in Poland which also results from the fact that this is still a fledgling market when compared to other EU countries. Opportunity for growth is, therefore, much greater here than on relatively saturated Western European markets.

Operating a business is inevitably related to the obligation to operate a full accounting system. An enterprise may keep the accounts on its own or by hiring an accounting firm. The most often method to satisfy this obligation is to keep the accounts in the form of a revenue and expense ledger (PKPiR), i.e. so-called simplified accounting. The second method requiring more efforts and costlier is the full accounting system. Therefore, it is worth knowing what entities are obliged to operate such full accounting system and how one could prepare to do it.

In my previous post I brought up the topic of difficulties which result from predicting conditions under which entrepreneurs will have to operate in the future. This is indeed a key challenge when specifying the scale and directions in which a company develops, as they are the key factors influencing the ability to create value. Therefore, despite difficulties, one should neither neglect nor belittle this very process.

Art. 79 p. 4 of the Accounting Act indicates that whosoever, contrary to its provisions, fails to submit financial statements or management reports to the relevant court register, is liable to a fine or penalty of restriction of liberty. Penalties for failure to submit financial statements are also due to the Fiscal Penal Code.

When at the beginning of 2003 first provisions concerning the interpretation of tax law were included in the Tax Ordinance Act, the Polish Ministry of Finance proudly announced its great success. Taxpayers were informed that, from this day on, legal certainty shall increase significantly, resulting from the fact that the interpretation and application of legal provisions will be, technically speaking, known in advance. In practice, as it usually happens, it turned out that the greatest problem is to ensure the uniformity of issued interpretations (initially such interpretations were to be obtained from the head of each tax office, at present they are issued only by a few entitled directors of tax chambers) and to determine the scope of protection guaranteed to taxpayers applying for an interpretation.

Business transactions conducted by taxpayers require appropriate documentation.

That is a reason for keeping tax books. They constitute an evidence for proper accounting and they should, therefore, reflect the actual state.

Only reliably and correctly kept books may be considered an evidence in the case of tax proceedings pending before tax authorities.

A taxpayer declaring an excess of input VAT over output VAT has the right to either carry it forward to the following tax period or to obtain a refund to a bank account. The shortest period in which the tax office will refund VAT is 25 days.

Whilst browsing the Internet recently, I came across an interesting report dedicated to economic and trade cooperation between Poland and Italy. Among a lot of interesting data referred to in this publication, I paid attention particularly to these relating to the size of Italian companies which invest in Poland.
