More than 40 entrepreneurs and employees of financial and accounting departments attended a free meeting “Changes in taxation and the PPK: what every entrepreneur should know?”organised by RSM Poland together with Santander Bank Polska SA and the Szczecin Business Club on Thursday, 24 October, in the Red City Hall in Szczecin. The conference was entirely devoted to the changes in taxation entrepreneurs will face in 2020 and Employee Capital Plans (in Polish: PPK).
The speakers, namely Tomasz BEGER, Tax Advisor and Tax Partner at RSM Poland, and Katarzyna SADOWSKA, Tax Advisor and Tax Supervisor at RSM Poland, talked about changes in VAT, CIT and PIT taxation planned for 2020 and discussed the most serious problems faced by taxpayers in the current year. Other topics on the agenda included the obligatory split payment mechanism, joint and collective responsibility as regards VAT, a new matrix of VAT rates along with Binding Rate Information (in Polish: WIS) or withholding tax (WHT). Robert MUSZYŃSKI, PPK Manager at Santander Bank Polska SA, offered an overview of how to establish, administer and make payments out of PPK, and answered many questions from the public.
During the meeting with Szczecin-based entrepreneurs we could discuss the most topical matters of concern of taxpayers in a reliable and clear way, and explain any doubts they had about the Employee Capital Plans, said Tomasz BEGER, an experienced practitioner, who shares his taxation expertise and experience during training sessions for management boards and financial and accounting services, or during dedicated courses organised by the Accountants Association in Poland. The high turnout at the conference confirms that taxation changes always raise many concerns among taxpayers, and entrepreneurs are looking for reliable sources of information and professional support. I am happy we could help – said BEGER.
The meeting was held with the support of the BPCC and the Finex Association of Financial Executives. Participants received didactic materials and attendance certificates.
