Poland has missed the 1 January 2020 implementation deadline for the four EU VAT 'Quick Fixes'.
The 'Quick Fixes' were implemented across the EU at the beginning of the year and aim to clarify VAT treatments on certain business to business (B2B) cross-border transactions between EU member states. Please see our previous article here, for further information on how these fixes work.
Poland has confirmed that from 1 January 2020 until it has implemented the new legislation, VAT registered businesses in the country will be permitted to either follow the revised EU VAT directive on quick fixes, or stick with the old Polish VAT rules, which may have different VAT treatments.
