VAT split payments further delay by Poland to July 2018

The introduction of ‘Split Payments’ will be delayed announced the Polish Ministry of Finance until 1st July, 2018. This anti-VAT fraud measure has already been delayed once since the original launch plan of 1st January, 2018.

‘Split Payments’ is a measure requiring B2B customers to pay the VAT element of an invoice into a separate VAT Bank Account of their supplier. This account is administered by the Polish Tax authorities, and usually may only be used to settle the supplier’s own VAT liabilities.

‘Split Payments’ is already being used in Italy for certain public service supplies. Unlike Poland, the customer has to pay the VAT element directly to the tax authorities.
