Poland To Ease Tax Burden On Small Businesses

by Ulrika Lomas, Tax-News.com, Brussels

20 December 2001


The Polish government revealed this week that it intends to ease the tax and administrative burden on small and medium-sized enterprises, a move which has been cautiously welcomed by the country's business sector.

According to a Financial Times report, the 'Enterprise Above All' package includes measures such as the elimination of the monthly filing requirement for some businesses, a more centralised interpretation of tax rules, the lowering of labour costs, and the simplification of social security requirements.

'We want to help create a situation in which (state) administration does not impede the development of enterprise,' Jacek Piechota, the Polish Economics Minister, told the FT.

However, the planned changes have not yet been finalised, and are to be discussed with a trilateral commission comprising representatives from the government, three leading business lobby groups, and the country's two main trade unions.

Speaking on behalf of Poland's 1.7 million companies, business groups told the Financial Times that they welcomed this announcement, but would reserve full judgement until the proposed measures are actually approved, having been stung in the past by empty governmental promises.
