Starting from 1st of March 2017 the reform of Polish tax administration came into force in Poland.
For this purpose, Krajowa Administracja Skarbowa (KAS) was created which combines the different structures of the fiscal administration, the customs service and the tax control.
The goal of the reform is to better exploit the potential of the tax services, and thus increase the effectiveness of the inspection and the tax collection. The new legislation is not only a new structure for the tax administration, but also the new procedures, often giving more authority to tax auditors.
Among the challenges faced by KAS there can be mentioned handling of large tax payers, unified tax and customs information, as well as the prevention of tax fraud, especially in the field of VAT.
