VAT changes are coming again.

On January 1, 2020, subsequent amendments to VAT will enter into force. This time they are caused by changes in European law. They concern the so-called intra-Community transactions.

The taxation system for these transactions, which has been in force since 1993, is temporary and is difficult to use for businesses at all times, prone to scams and fraud.

For now, the EU is proposing four ad hoc solutions:

– harmonization of provisions on the storage of goods (consignment warehouses),

– simplification of chain transactions, the intermediary arranging the transport will be able to decide which of the transactions is intra-Community,

– changes in the meaning of summary information provided to tax authorities, – simplification in the required documentation of intra-Community transactions.

– simplification in the required documentation of intra-Community transactions.

The ways to invest in Bitcoins.

Bitcoin exchange (BTC) – the investor can set up an anonymous cryptocurrency account to buy and hold cryptocurrency through the BTC exchange. However, this carries two types of threat.   First, when we make transactions on the cryptocurrency exchange, our funds are not on our account, but on the exchange account. Unfortunately, the short history of cryptocurrencies already knows spectacular examples of crypto exchanges that have been closed overnight, disappearing along with investor funds. There are also examples of cryptocurrency exchanges that have been robbed by hackers.   Secondly, if we lose our login and password to the account or someone steals them from us, we will lose our cryptocurrencies irrevocably, without the possibility of applying for help. There is no place where we could ask to recover lost data or stolen bitcoins.

A different method of making profits from cryptocurrencies is data encryption. To start making money on cryptocurrencies, you can also buy specialized information encryption equipment and receive remuneration in the form of bitcoins for your contribution to the IT system. However, this requires specialized knowledge in the field of programming and selection of advanced computer equipment, which is not the cheapest.

How to end your business in Poland?

If we come to the conclusion that there is no point in continuing to do business, then liquidation proceedings should be carried out. The shareholders’ meeting takes place at the notary public, where the decision is made to dissolve the company and appoint its liquidator.
The liquidator of the company may be someone from the company’s former management board or any person indicated by the management board. It is safer to employ people with knowledge of the liquidation proceedings.

The conditions for bankruptcy law are already crucial in the liquidation process. It may turn out that after opening the liquidation process of the company, it turns out that we have at least two creditors and overdue receivables exceed three months, then we have 30 days to file for bankruptcy, despite the fact that the company is in liquidation. Finally, after 6 months from the date of announcement of the company’s liquidation in the Court and Economic Monitor, the meeting of shareholders may decide to remove the company from the National Court Register.

Is Poland an attractive country for foreigners?

Among the citizens of countries that recognize Poland as an attractive direction of immigration are Ukrainians, Russians and Belarusians, as well as citizens of Asian countries (Vietnamese, Chinese, Hindus) and citizens of the countries of the South Caucasus. According to the estimates of the Government Population Council, due to the low fertility rate of women, Poland will need about 5 million immigrants, only to maintain the current economic level. In this context, immigration from Ukraine is particularly important. The presence of Ukrainian employees on the Polish labor market is more and more necessary, and the creation of facilities for them is much needed, as they are also becoming desirable on other Western markets.
In recent years, a number of facilities for foreigners have been introduced in Poland. On the other hand, Polish society is still perceived (quite stereotypically) as reluctant to foreigners, and the provisions of Polish law, despite being updated, still constitute a fairly significant barrier to access to the labor market and education.

According to experts of the Association of Entrepreneurs and Employers, this may result in an outflow of Ukrainian workers from Poland of around half a million, which may result in a 1.6 per cent GDP decline (1/3 of the growth rate). Visa liberalization to the EU appears to be Germany’s first step in acquiring qualified employees, but much has been said about simplified procedures for recognizing the qualifications of people outside the EU, support in learning German or integration activities.

Is Poland concerned by the migration crisis?

The migration crisis is one of the most pressing problems in the European Union. The number of immigrants has been increasing in recent years, and the issue of immigration has become a political issue in EU countries. Despite the increase in immigration in recent years, Poland still belongs to emigration countries, not immigration countries. This means that Poland is classified as a country not directly affected by the migration crisis, which has an impact on the attitude of the Polish government towards the crisis and how to solve it.

Among the motives for immigration to Poland, the economic factor and the prospect of stable employment and earnings still prevail, and family ties and cultural closeness facilitate the decision on immigration to Poland. According to information from the Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Policy, about 1.5 million foreigners work in Poland, although this data may be underestimated due to the fact that some foreigners stay in Poland illegally and take up illegal work.
