According to Employers of Poland, suggested change in the draft of amendments to the VAT taxation act – which regulate the rules of settling and deducting expenses for the exploitation and reparation of passenger cars – are excessively restrictive. They also place unjustified burdens on entrepreneurs.
According to expert of Employers of Poland Mariusz Korzeb, the obligation for entrepreneurs to evidence the cars' mileage, even if they are used only for their business activities, will generate additional costs and be a hindrance for them. Passing the suggested solutions will force many entrepreneurs not to use their right to deduct the entire VAT for such vehicles
We are worried with the introduction of the assumption that every vehicle is used both in activities related and unrelated to business. If the taxpayer does not evidence mileage, he will only be allowed to deduct 50% of the calculated tax – stresses Mariusz Korzeb.
Employers of Poland see these changes as a further complication of the tax system and a negative influence on entrepreneurs' economic situation – as a consequence they could harm the economy as a whole.
