The government introduces amendments to the Polish Order and proposes a number of significant changes to the current tax system. The presented solutions are a response to the demands of entrepreneurs and taxpayers, as well as the current situation related to the armed conflict in Ukraine. The changes are intended to simplify the tax system and at the same time protect taxpayers from any negative impact of the war on the Polish economy.
The most important ideas are certainly the lowering of the basic PIT rate and the resignation from the middle class relief, but the reform is to cover much more areas. Below, we present the solutions proposed by the Ministry of Finance which are of key importance from the taxpayer's point of view.
Proposed key changes to the tax system:
The new tax solutions are to enter into force on 1 July 2022. For this to happen, the draft bill will first be consulted with, among others, the Social Dialogue Council, the Accountants Association in Poland, the National Chamber of Tax Advisers and representatives of entrepreneurs. Consultations will last from 24 March to 2 April 2022.
