Special: VAT in Poland

Optimising VAT and ongoing VAT support in Poland

A particularly important part of our tax consultancy in Poland is connected with VAT law. Foreign companies that are commercially active in Poland may, under certain circumstances, be obliged to regularly report Polish VAT (on either a monthly or quarterly basis). Even if there is no statutory obligation to register VAT in Poland, it may often be more beneficial to report in order to settle VAT in Poland. We will advise and support you when choosing and implementing the optimal VAT solutions and also, if necessary, when preregistering the VAT. We will also represent your interests when contacting Polish financial authorities so that they can be taken care of as quickly as possible.

VAT payments in Poland and default interest 

VON ZANTHIER & DACHOWSKI offers foreign companies comprehensive support for VAT payments in Poland. Our long-term experience in working together with the Polish tax authorities ensures that the process runs smoothly. This concerns not only paying the VAT itself, since the financial authorities often take a long time to refund VAT. Under some circumstances, a claim for payment of default interest may also apply, which could amount to significant sums.
