Fourth deregulation for entreperneus

On 10 June 2014 the Council of Ministers adopted a draft law to facilitate the conduct of economic activity in Poland. It is the fourth so-called deregulation act prepared by the Ministry of Economy and proposes more than 40 solutions in the field of commercial law, mainly due to the reduction of the information obligations, which facilitates the operation of firms in different areas. They will support primarily small and medium-sized enterprises.


For our Clients, it seems that the following proposed changes in the reduce of the administrative and information duties in commercial law and the reduction of operating costs are significant:

  1. to enable to keep the validity of a medical certificate by the new employer in the case of employment on a similar position (simplification of procedures relating to the employment process);
  2. abolish the mandatory requirement of obtaining by entrepreneurs the confirmation of VAT registration for VAT-R (reduce the cost of starting a business - now it cost 170 PLN for the taxpayer);
  3. to replace the current system of accounting for income taxes for the use of a company vehicle for private purposes simplified flat-rate scheme (two simple lump sum depends on the engine capacity of the vehicle - the amount of the monthly flat-rate tax of PLN 45 for a vehicle with a capacity of 1600 cm3, above the capacity – PLN 72);
  4. limit statistical obligations for micro-entrepreneurs (exemption from the obligation to submit data in the year of commencement of a business);
  5. reduction of the contributors in the field of Social Security (the abolition of the obligation to verify the accuracy of the data reported to Social Security, abolishing the obligation to provide monthly reports to the unemployed);
  6. release employees from an income tax for commutation to the workplace by public transport (bus), organized by the employer (reduction of the registration for entrepreneurs, facilitating tax compliance, reducing the tax burden for workers and encouraging the employment);
  7. the continuation of the so-called "culture of statements" (changes in the next set to allow the submission of statements in place of the previously required certificates).
