Appointment of a tax representative and tax agent in Poland
A tax representative or tax agent in Poland deals with any formalities related to obtaining a VAT number for a foreign company, submitting a declaration on its behalf, and representing it at a tax office.
Each foreign company pursuing taxable activities within Poland is obliged to register for VAT purposes with the relevant Polish offices. VAT registration is mandatory before the first taxable transaction is made (supply, purchase, taxable sale, export). It is possible to appoint a tax representative or tax agent to go through all tax formalities on the company’s behalf.
Below you will find much useful information on registration for VAT purposes in Poland. If you did not find answers to your questions, you can visit the official website of the Polish administration authority or contact us using the contact form.

VAT declarations in Poland
All companies registered for VAT in Poland must submit a VAT declaration and Unified Control Statement (JPK). This declaration includes a summary of all transactions (purchase, sale, import, export, services) conducted in Poland. In principle, a VAT declaration must be submitted on a monthly or quarterly basis if turnover is lower than EUR 1,200,000. In Poland, there are several tax-related declarations (VAT-7, VAT-EU, Control Statement “JPK”, Intrastat). It is important to analyse in detail how to precisely settle transactions and tax in order to avoid any potential financial penalties imposed by the tax office. A tax representative or tax agent has experience and knowledge in this regard. That is why companies often decide to cooperate with firms that offer representation and tax agent services. In this manner, they may be confident that any and all tax requirements have been met.
