Tax interpretations will soon be no more. The old ones will cease to be in force, there will be no new ones.
Every year almost 40 000 interpretations are issued. However, it appears that officials will soon have less work to do. The draft of the VAT act presented by PiS states that the tax authorities will no longer answer questions regarding this tax.
Abolishing interpretations is a revolution in the world of taxes. Opinions on this matter are divided. Mariusz Korzeb, tax adviser and expert of Employers of Poland is in favour of the decision.
– Interpretations have a negative impact on legal certainty. In fear of controls, entrepreneurs often ask for interpretations even in quite unimportant cases. This makes running a business harder – he says.
