On 16 February 2017, GESSEL welcomed several dozen participants from all over Poland to a training event devoted to the amendments to Polish VAT rules which came into force at the beginning of the year as applied to the construction industry.

The practical implications of the new VAT rules for the construction sector discussed during the meeting included invoicing in “reverse charge” arrangements, with especial emphasis on the applicable deadlines.

Other topics included VAT settlements for subcontractors and their suppliers as well as the real estate tax consequences of Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1042/2013 of 7 October 2013 amending Implementing Regulation (EU) No 282/2011 as regards the place of supply of services.

The meeting was led by Katarzyna Kollar Ryszard, attorney and tax advisor with GESSEL.
