Changes in the Tax Ordinance Act

Polish tax regulations are characterised by high changeability and complexity, which force entrepreneurs not only to follow the numerous legislations introduced, but also the published interpretations – almost 34 thousand annually! A significant improvement to the tax payers’ situation is supposed tobe brought about by the changes in the planned Tax Ordinance Act, which also raise major controversies. Therefore, it is worth searching, through thorough discussion, for an answer to the question whether the planned changes will be an actual help for entrepreneurs.

Everyone interested in tax law should feel invited to the “Changes in the Tax Ordinance Act” panel discussion.

Over the course of the session we will, together with the experts, consider the effects of the recently introduced changes, as well as those yet to come into force. Will they really improve the situation of entrepreneurs, or are they just an introduction to further necessary changes. How, in practice, will the rule of resolving all legal questions in favour of the tax payer (so-called In dubio pro tributario) function? Will the tax avoidance clause be introduced and what effects will it actually have? During the discussion other sensational issues will be raised, i.e., the phenomenon of blank invoices, its scale and means of estimating the incurred budget losses. We will also consider the role of tax authorities in the process of detecting tax evasion.

The session will be held as a part of the V European Congress of SME on the 14th of October 2015 at 11.30 to 13.30 at the International Congress Center in Katowice. Participation in the Congress is free of charge.
