Fiscal representative for UK and Norwegian companies might not be mandatory in Poland
The Polish Ministry of Finance proposed a new decree that would make fiscal representation not mandatory for UK or Norwegian established companies.
Fiscal representation in Poland
Normally, non-EU established companies are required to have fiscal representation for tax purposes in Poland. The fiscal representative is jointly and severally liable with the taxpayer in front of the tax authorities. This means that the fiscal representative will be responsible for any penalties or debt incurred on late filing or late payments if the taxpayer does not pay.
These changes would take effect retroactively as from 1 January 2021.
Potential changes to come
Recently, the Ministry of Finance in Poland proposed a change in the current regulations that would make the obligation to appoint a fiscal representative not required for companies established in Norway or the UK. As no official agreement has been reached yet, we will continue to monitor for any changes and update this article accordingly.
This proposal was made with the aim of reducing costs for companies established in the UK and Norway that carry out business in Poland.
