We kindly apologize for any inconveniences and we count on Your understanding.
November 2019 was the time of the biggest reform of the Civil Procedure Code in many years. Although some of the changes came into force earlier, it was on 7 November that most of the amended regulations finally came into force. The most important objective of the introduced reforms is to improve civil procedure by shortening the duration of court proceedings. The main changes concern the principles of service of pleadings – the so-called fiction of service has been abandoned; jurisdiction has been determined; decisions have been issued – the rule is that they should be issued in secret. Instruments used to accelerate civil proceedings are also the so-called preparatory proceedings, during which judges should persuade the parties to conclude a settlement, as well as a simplified procedure for dismissing plaintiffs who are obviously unfounded and those who do not contain a specific demand.
Continuing the fight against value added tax fraud and evasion, on 1 November 2019 the legislator introduced into the Polish tax system an obligation to apply the “split payment ” in designated economic areas, which until now was a voluntary choice of the taxpayer. The essence of the split payment mechanism is to split the payment for the goods or services due resulting from the VAT invoice received from the customer through the payment of VAT to a special VAT account set up for this purpose by a bank.
Not all transactions are covered by the obligatory mechanism of split payment, but only those related to goods and services, which have been enumerated in Appendix No. 15 to the VAT Act, including construction services. If the transaction is made by VAT taxpayers (entrepreneurs), its value exceeds PLN 15,000, and one of the items on the VAT invoice concerns sensitive goods or services, the entities participating in the transaction are obliged to apply the split payment mechanism. In such a case, the seller is obliged to identify the transaction and place the annotation “split payment” on the VAT invoice and the buyer is obliged to make the split payment according to the instructions provided by the bank.
Violation of the newly introduced provisions is subject to a penalty of an additional tax liability equal to 30% of the VAT value resulting from such an invoice (only in respect of items covered by the split payment), exclusion of the possibility to include a given expense as a tax deductible cost and penal and fiscal liability (fine up to 720 daily rates).
