In my last post on the blog, I answered the most frequently asked questions that may crop up when analysing the benefits and drawbacks of the split payment mechanism. If you answered ‘yes’ to the fundamental question whether to use the split payment or not, this post will help you prepare for the proper introduction of the SPM in your organisation. But stay calm, even if you have made this decision, it does not mean that it is written in stone, as the purchaser has the freedom of deciding on how often and how he is going to apply the SPM.

In newsletter 15/2018, we informed that the Minister of Finance published tax explanations concerning the split payment mechanism (hereinafter referred to as: SPM). Today, I am presenting my first post about the details. Based on the explanations and questions we had received from you, we have created a list of frequently asked questions about the introduction of the SPM.

Over the last couple of months, I have been very intensively involved in the recruitment process in our organisation and I talked to male and female candidates who wanted to learn something more about the work in a specific workplace, which an accounting office most certainly is. In wanting to met the expectations, this post has been written for all those who would like to pursue or continue their accountancy career.

In the previous article we presented the first step in the model framework of revenue recognition, namely contract identification. Under IFRS 15, revenue should be recognised when contractual obligations are satisfied. Therefore, the entity must first indicate performance obligations in the contract, which makes the second step in the new model of revenue recognition. We are going to discuss it further in this article.

As of 1 January 2018, thin capitalisation rules have been replaced by regulations limiting the tax-deductibility of certain debt financing costs. Unfortunately, the new regulations fail to provide clear rules and principles for calculating the amount of debt financing costs excluded from tax-deductible costs and raise significant doubts among experts and taxpayers. Meanwhile, since the beginning of 2018, the director of the National Revenue Information Office has issued a number of tax interpretations concerning the matter in question, in which he presented a position that is disadvantageous for taxpayers.

In today's entry I will summarize the main assumptions arising from the “Methodology”, i.e. a document containing guidelines helpful for tax administration officials in assessing the exercise of due diligence by entrepreneurs.

I have written a lot so far about how to verify a contractor in order not to be entangled in tax fraud (Link to previous section). However, there is something else that can protect you from the sanctions of the tax authority and measurable business losses (loss of money and reputation). The Ministry of Finance clearly indicated in the Methodology that the assessment of due diligence will also be carried out by the National Tax Administration (KAS) officials taking the application by the taxpayer of the split payment mechanism, which will become effective as of 1 July 2018 into account.
