  • Review and preparation of VAT settlement procedures

    Keeping VAT accounts involves a significant number of steps that need to be taken. The process starts as early as issuing and then settling purchase and sales invoices, which go through the VAT registers, and ending with creating JPK_V7. As of 2024, there will also be additional obligations related to the implementation of KSeF, which will allow the tax authorities to see every sales or purchase invoice. 

    VAT accounting does not at all begin and end only in the accounting department, as your company’s operating departments also contribute to the correct and timely accounting of VAT. 

    A correct and comprehensive approach to the subject of VAT settlements through the preparation of an appropriate procedure, defining the VAT obligations that are associated with a given transaction/activity, makes it possible to conduct a fluent VAT settlement process. Depending on the specifics of the industry, the VAT settlement procedure may consist of a comprehensive instruction of your company’s settlements or focus on specific areas from the VAT perspective. 

    Having a procedure composed for the requirements of your business translates into increased awareness of business and operational departments of their role in proper VAT settlement. It also provides them with instructions on how to proceed and why they may be involved in the settlement process at all. 

    In addition to increased security, the VAT settlement procedure provides management and accounting departments with an important element of protection against fiscal criminal liability. 

    Who is it for?
    • Is your company preparing numerous JPK_V7 revisions due to repeated errors on the part of operating departments?
    • What if the scale of your company's operations has increased, new types of transactions have appeared and you would like to make sure that everything works in a well-ordered way?

      Judgment of the Supreme Administrative Court, ref. no. I FSK 1816/20

      The court objected to the very common approach among the tax authorities, but also often among the courts, of attributing an implicit awareness of participation in a fraud by pointing out that the evidence on the record did not show that such awareness existed. The court ordered that very precise criteria be taken into account that would make such awareness of fraud plausible.
