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.

Blockchain

Blockchain technology is used to store and send information about transactions concluded on the internet. These transactions are arranged in consecutive blocks of data. Each block contains information about a specific number of transactions.

After filling it with transaction information, another data block is created, followed by the next and next block. This creates a kind of chain (hence the name: blockchain is a block chain). A new block appears on average every 10 minutes. It may contain information about various transactions, e.g. commercial transactions, ownership status, shares, shares, electricity generation and the purchase or sale of currencies, including cryptocurrencies – electronic currencies.

The essence of blockchain is to maintain a joint and collective transaction accounting book, in digital form, scattered throughout the network, in the same copies. This book is a collection of all transactions carried out at the moment in blockchain. This technology is based on peer-to-peer networks without central computers, transaction management and verification systems. Any computer on the network can participate in transaction transmission and authentication. In the case of blockchain, these will be blocks within the transaction book. The book is open to everyone, but fully secured by complicated cryptographic tools against unauthorized access.

Thanks to this entry, transactions are public, available to everyone, but visible only under the user’s access rights. Their entire history, from the beginning of blockchain existence to today, can be reviewed and verified.

Currently, blockchain can be used to handle various transactions, but work is underway to use the block chain as an accounting book in banking, a document authentication system, a digital signature in state administration and a notary record. All these transactions can take place outside the system that has been functioning for centuries – without the participation of public trust institutions, directly between the parties to the transaction. You can store any type of transaction in blockchain data blocks. One of the applications is the cryptocurrencies mentioned for example Bitcoin.

Main relevant issues related to the Bitcoin cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and stored electronically. Established in 2009, by its creator Mr. Satoshi Nakamoto. It was the first virtual payment method of this type in the world. Thanks to several important features, it is one of the largest financial innovations of recent years.

At the moment, due to the lack of bank intermediation in funds transfer, bitcoin is considered by many investors as a cheaper alternative, especially for larger amounts.

Two other important features of cryptocurrencies payment system are definetely security and anonymity. Information on transactions carried out using bitcoin is encrypted using a technology called “blockchain”. At the moment, its mode of operation and continuous verification seems to be virtually unbreakable. Creating an account in this cryptocurrency has no formal conditions and the accounts are anonymous. The only thing the user receives to the invoice is a 54-character login and password.

A huge advantages of this payment method are also the speed and ease in making the transfers online. In the process of transferring funds, the distance to the place where we send the money does not matter and the transaction is carried out without intermediaries. Bitcoin transfers have no restrictions in the form of weekdays or holidays, we can send funds 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Transactions are approved almost every 10 minutes.

In comparison to traditional banks that have a centralized database system, information about the status of bitcoin accounts is simultaneously found in many places on earth in the same form. That makes it definetely more secure.

These factors as much as the fact that according to the assumptions, a limited amount of 21,000,000 bitcoins will be created by 2140 have largely influenced the popularity of bitcoin, which is reflected in its market value. At present, approximately 16,500,000 bitcoins have already been circulated, and the pace at which others will hit the market will slow down.

15 years of Poland in the European Union

For many people, membership of the European Union is almost normal. However, it cannot be denied that the changes that took place in 2004 had a major impact on all areas of economic and social life in our country in the following years. Membership benefits are undeniable. Just look at the balance of payments and withdrawals from the EU cash register. During these 15 years, Poland received net, i.e. after transfers from EU treaties over EUR 100 billion, i.e. at today’s EUR / PLN exchange rate over PLN 430 billion! To see how big this amount is, just look at this year’s Polish budget, which is PLN 387 billion.

It must also be admitted that Poland, looking generally at all these 15 years, used the EU funds in a satisfactory manner. Initially, there were considerable formal difficulties, even with completing the applications, but over time national institutions gained experience, as well as public awareness in the context of the existence of various forms of assistance from the EU increased, which allowed optimal use of funds. Funds from the cohesion fund were used primarily for infrastructure, including roads and motorways. For example, when we entered the EU, highways were only 500 km, while today it is already 1630 km. Farmers will not complain either. The billions of euros that went under direct payments allowed us to significantly modernize the Polish countryside, breeding and cultivating plants. Exports to the EU have also increased significantly. It increased almost five times.

Poles want to be in the EU, according to surveys, CBOS declares over 90%, and appreciate the benefits of being a member. It is mainly about the growth of the Polish economy and the growing quality of life. More and more Poles also appreciate the role of the European Parliament and thus declare a greater desire to participate in elections to this body.
