Companies should be formally protected against charges of negligence in VAT transactions.
The problem of charges of negligence in VAT is serious. – In 2012-2013, when the phenomenon intensified, many were not aware of it and unwittingly fell prey to organized crime groups. We are now faced with many such cases against law-aiding taxpayers – remarks Mariusz Korzeb, expert of Employers of Poland.
Strikingly, a company may be accused of conscious participation in a VAT carousel even if the crime was committed at an early stage of the supply chain. – The tax authorities expect companies to control not only its contractors but also their subcontractors and so on. This is simply impossible to do – Korzeb emphasizes.
