Poland Withdraws 'Single Tax' Proposal

by Ulrika Lomas,, Brussels

29 December 2016

The Polish Government has decided not to proceed with a proposal to restructure the tax regime for self-employed taxpayers.

At present, self-employed taxpayers can opt to pay a 19 percent flat tax plus social security and health contributions, instead of normal progressive income tax rates of 18 percent and 32 percent.

A proposal first announced by Prime Minister Beata Szydlo in April 2016 would have combined the 19 percent flat tax and additional contributions into a single tax charge.

However, Deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced on December 21 that following an analysis of the proposal by Economic Committee of the Council of Ministers, the Government no longer intends to implement the "single tax" regime.

Morawiecki said that the proposal for the single tax was "not well founded" and could have been detrimental to the self-employed and small businesses.
