The Law on the Council for Social Dialogue, Superact on energy transmissions and last but not least – the in dubio pro tributario principle – all regulations important for the Employers of Poland were adopted this week and signed by the outgoing President, Bronisław Komorowski.
– It is a great success of our organization. We were deeply involved in work on each of these provisions – said Andrzej Malinowski, President of the Employers of Poland.
The biggest success is the introduction of resolving disputes over interpretation of law in favour of the taxpayers. This principle is standard in all civilized countries. In Poland, however, ambiguities in interpretation have so far been resolved in favour of the tax authorities. Therefore, the Employers of Poland engaged in activities aimed to change that.
The success of the Employers of Poland is also adopting the law on the Council for Social Dialogue. President Bronisław Komorowski signed it on August 3 at the Belvedere in the presence of representatives of all parties to the dialogue. It is thanks to their determination and the support of the Office of the President that the passed. As a result, the Council for Social Dialogue will replace the Tripartite Commission.
The last one – the law on the preparation and implementation of strategic investments in transmission networks will significantly speed up and facilitate the process of development and modernization of key power lines. It's about 23 strategic investments. This is an important step towards strengthening the country's energy security and ensuring a stable electricity supply. Necessary investments have so far been slowed down by many lengthy procedures and disputes with property owners.
