Split payment

New rules for the split payment apply from 01/11/2019. This mechanism is based on the fact that the buyer can only transfer a net amount to the current account of the seller. The VAT is transferred to a special VAT bank account. The funds in the VAT bank account belong to the seller, but cannot be freely disposed. The funds may be used in particular to settle tax or other public law liabilities. A VAT bank account is automatically opened by the Tax Office, but this does not apply to foreign entities that do not have a bank account in Poland.

The split payment mechanism is mandatory as of 01/11/2019 for transactions documented by invoices issued in the amount exceeding PLN 15,000 gross and concerning among others:

• construction works;
• secondary raw materials and waste;
• electrical equipment;
• coal;
• engine petrol, diesel oils, heating oils and lubricating oils;
• steel and metal products.

If the new rules are not applied, the Tax Office may impose an additional tax obligation or the VAT-tax payer may bear the consequences resulting from the Fiscal Penal Code. At your request, we will be happy to check whether you are subject to the mandatory split payment mechanism and whether your invoice templates and payment processes are adapted to this.

Together with SEC Consult we declare war on hackers!

Attacks by hackers on companies to extort money are becoming more and more frequent and more expensive for German companies. We have decided to make our contribution to fight against hackers and to minimize the damage of enterprises, if possible: VON ZANTHIER & SCHULZ is therefore from March 2, 2020 cooperating with the Europe-wide and successful cyber security company SEC Consult Deutschland GmbH

SEC Consult offers immediate help around the clock in case of hacker attacks: in case of an attack technical countermeasures are swiftly initiated to ward off the hacker and prevent further damage (so called Incident Response). Within the scope of the forensic analysis the traces of the attacker are secured for potentially following legal steps.

VON ZANTHIER & SCHULZ provides legal support to SEC Consult in Germany, be it by determining the necessity of a legally required breakdown report, checking possibilities of recourse claims, or managing customer claims. As a preventative measure, we put on our hat as data protection officer and implement the DSGVO requirements in the respective company, which reduces the possibilities of claims against it.
