TGC Corporate Lawyers Poland sent us another of their timely legal alerts:
Dear Quoracy Subscribers,
Extended taxation on gratuitous actions
As of 1 April 2011 all transfers of goods belonging to the tax payer’s enterprise made by the tax payer gratuitously (whether made for purposes relating to the enterprise or not) will be subject to taxation if the tax payer was entitled to reduce the output tax by the amount of the input tax in respect of such goods, in full or in part.
Medical packages for employees
The amendment introduces a VAT exemption on provision of services consisting of the employers making medical benefits available to employees and their family members.
Delivery of goods and provision of services by an entity not having a registered office in the Republic of Poland
Pursuant to the amendment, if the entity providing services or delivering goods to the tax payer in Poland does not have its registered office, permanent place of residence or permanent place of business in Poland, the recipient of services or buyer of goods shall always be the tax payer in respect of such transactions.
Trade in scrap – new taxation rules
The amendment changes the rules for settling the tax in trade in scrap and rights regarding emission of greenhouse gases. The said amendment introduces a general rule pursuant to which it is the purchaser who is obliged to pay VAT in respect of delivery of scrap and transfer of rights to emit greenhouse gases.
We will be pleased to provide you with detailed information regarding amendments to the VAT Act. For this purpose, we can prepare appropriate training, meetings with our tax advisers and opinions regarding issues of interest to you.
