On Friday, December 12th, a meeting of representatives of entrepreneurs’ organizations, employers, as well as professional associations, was held at the headquarters of Employers of Poland. The discussion concerned the formula of cooperation with the Codification Commission for General Tax Law.
– We do not want to be – and will not be – passive observers. We want to participate in every stage of works aimed at substituting the Tax Ordinance currently in force with a new one – said Chairman of the Tax Committee of Employers of Poland Robert Oliwa.
Drawing attention to the fact that fixing the tax system is a key challenge for the state, participants declared their willingness to fully cooperate with the Commission established by Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz. This cooperation would involve a.o. regular meetings with Commission representatives, informing social partners of the progress of works on new acts, as well as a significant increase in the frequency of consulting guidelines and drafts of regulations.
At the same time, participants expect the Commission to present preliminary guidelines for the draft of the new Tax Ordinance, so that common recommendations may be elaborated. Apart from that, guests of Employers of Poland discussed their cooperation in further stages of the legislation process.
Let us remind that this year, preliminary legislative action has been undertaken to elaborate an act which would substitute the Tax Ordinance. The Codification Commission was also established to serve as an intermediary between the legislator and society.
Apart from representatives of employers of Poland, the meeting was also attended by representatives of the Polish Bar Council, National Council of Tax Advisers, Polish Craft Association, Entrepreneurs’ and Employers’ Association, Trade Union Forum and Federation of Small and Medium Enterprises.
