What are the main taxes to consider when doing business in Poland:
VAT tax in Poland
- value added tax - VAT
- personal income tax - PIT
- Polish government agency dealing with social insurance issues - ZUS
- corporate income tax - CIT
The tax is not paid only by the health services (selectively), social security, education and, also selectively, financial and insurance companies.
VAT is a tax that is already included in the cost of a service or product. The rate on it depends on the type of goods or services provided:
standard rate - 23%
international transport services, export of goods, intra-industry supplies, etc. - 0%
some types of books, food, pharmaceuticals, agricultural services, livestock, periodicals, newspapers, magazines - 8%, 5% and 3% CIT tax in Poland
This is a flat rate tax of 19% for legal entities. On January 1, 2018, an update was introduced to the legislation, thanks to which CIT was reduced to 9% for small companies, whose income in the previous year did not exceed €1,200,000. Expenses might be deducted from the tax base up to 50% subject to the acquisition of new technologies. Aliens and those who intend to introduce new projects to the Polish market can also take advantage of the reduced tax of 9%. PIT tax in Poland
A compulsory payment for everyone who receives income from entrepreneurial activity under a contract (labor, civil, etc.). If an individual or legal entity resides in Poland and receives income from the type of activity (provision of services and goods), this obliges him to pay a tax duty on the amount of all income received.
