Inter-ministerial arrangements concerning the assumptions of the third deregulation package are underway. The press release indicates that the Finance Ministry will once again block the beneficial changes for business.
The third edition of deregulation provides inter alia a dissemination of cash accounting scheme for VAT, a unification of a refund period of overpaid taxes, a reduction of the obligation to keep records of cash registers, or the settlement of VAT on import declarations rather than within 10 days. Bringing these proposals into effect would have positive impact on the liquidity of enterprises, which is particularly important in situations where payment backlogs lead to bankruptcy of companies.
Meanwhile, the Finance Ministry draws attention to the costs of these changes in the form of a reduction of budgetary revenues. According to an expert of the Employers of Poland, the calculations of the Finance Ministry seem exaggerated.
