A corporate entity pays Corporation Tax at 19% of profits.

AUDIT

Corporate entities must file accounts at least once per year with the Company Registration Court and the Tax Authorities. This must be done within six months of the financial year end. An Audit will not be required unless the business satisfies certain conditions – Public Limited Companies must have an audit; other businesses may need to have an audit.

VAT

The supply of goods or services is subject to VAT (unless exempt or outside the scope of VAT). Most normal types of business activity are subject to VAT. The standard rate is 23%.

VAT rules are complex and should be discussed with a tax advisor before a business commences.

PERSONAL INCOME TAX

A sole trader or partner will pay Personal Income Tax (normally 19%) on business profits.

CAPITAL GAINS TAX

This is due on any sale of assets and other items of a capital nature although there are many exemptions.

The annual exemption for individuals for the year ended 5th of April 2011 is £10,100.

The rate of tax is 18% with Entrepreneurs relief potentially reducing the effective rate of tax on qualifying gains to 10%.

INHERITANCE TAX

This is payable on death

Non-residents in Poland are subject to IHT and Donations Tax on assets located in Poland. The applicable tax depends on the relationship between the deceased/donor and the beneficiary. The taxation is scaled with rates ranging between 7% and 20% of the inherited amount after tax free allowances.
