In early April 2021, the Ministry of Finance published explanations on transfer pricing adjustment. These explanations do not constitute the source of law; they are rather an attempt at offering some insight into how to apply legal regulations on transfer pricing adjustments between related entities. In this post, we are going to take a closer look at the most important insights included in the explanations published by the Ministry of Finance.

Yesterday (18 March), the European Court of Justice issued a judgement that is very important for Polish taxpayers. It is a preliminary ruling in case C-895/19, where it was ruled that the Polish regulations on VAT refund in the case of late recognition of ICA are in breach of EU regulations.

Od 1 stycznia 2021 r. Wielka Brytania w relacjach handlowych z państwami Unii Europejskiej traktowana jest jako państwo trzecie. Oznacza to dodatkowe obowiązki dla brytyjskich przedsiębiorców dokonujących czynności opodatkowanych podatkiem od towarów i usług w państwie członkowskim UE (np. w Polsce).As of 1 January 2021, the UK is deemed a third party in business relations with EU member states. This translates to additional obligations for UK businesses performing activities subject to VAT in an EU member state (e.g. in Poland).

As of 1 January 2021, the United Kingdom is treated as a third country in business relations with the European Union. What this means is that any British entrepreneur who performs transactions subject to VAT in Poland and therefore wants to register for VAT purposes in Poland, must appoint a tax representative. However, changes are on the way.

From 2021, certain CIT payers can reinvest their earnings tax-free; this is a tax measure dubbed the ‘Estonian CIT’. It should be noted that this is by no means a reduction of the tax paid; it is about shifting the time when taxable income is recognised while making the accounting records simpler.

Last week, the Sejm adopted a whole range of amendments of tax regulations. Apart from the fact that CIT will be levied from limited partnerships and the Estonian CIT will be introduced, taxpayers should also note the provision that is going to enter into force on 1 January 2021 and require companies to prepare the information about their tax strategy for the fiscal year and publish it to make it available to the public. However, this obligation will only apply to the largest taxpayers and tax capital groups.

The proposed amendments involve a number of matters that have been previously signalled, including, most notably, the corporate income tax (CIT) being imposed on limited partnerships. The changes are to enter into force as of the beginning of 2021.

Zmniejszone przychody, zwiększone koszty, przestoje w produkcji, problemy z dostawami materiałów i surowców, osłabiona efektywność, niewypłacalność – to tylko niektóre z licznych negatywnych skutków, z którymi mierzą się przedsiębiorcy w obecnej sytuacji spowodowanej pandemią koronawirusa SARS-CoV-2.

W niniejszym wpisie przedstawimy kluczowe ryzyka i wyzwania stojące przed podmiotami powiązanymi w zakresie cen transferowych w obliczu wirusa COVID-19.
