European Commission allows Poland to postpone mandatory eInvoicing

The European Commission has published the final draft, allowing mandatory eInvoicing in Poland starting April 1, 2023 instead of January 1, 2023.

The Polish request to derogate from the VAT directive and implement an obligation to issue electronic invoices, processed through the National e-Invoicing System (KSeF), for all B2B transactions that require an invoice to be issued under Polish VAT legislation was amended by letter dated February 8, 2022. In this letter Poland requested that the scope of the special measure be limited to only cover taxable persons established within the territory of Poland, and as such derogation from article 226 would not be needed.

Taxable persons established in Poland are also required to report to the KSeF certain additional transactions, such as intra-Community acquisitions and the cross-border purchase of services. The issuance of these invoices are not subject to Polish rules, and as such a derogation of the VAT directive is also not necessary. The transmission of this additional data will allow Poland to prepare pre-filled VAT declarations and recapitulative statements.

This draft decision is now awaiting approval by the EU council which is expected to approve the draft in the coming weeks.
