Country-by-country reports - new regulations. Polish regulations relating to the country-by-country reports (CbCR) implements COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 2011/16/EU of 15 February 2011 on administrative cooperation in the field of taxation and repealing Directive 77/799/EEC and COUNCIL DIRECTIVE (EU) 2015/2060 of 10 November 2015 repealing Directive 2003/48/EC on taxation of savings income in the form of interest payments.

This obligation will arise if no other entity from the group has been assigned to submit a CbCR and at the same time one of the following conditions is met:

- the parent company is not required to provide information on the group of entities for the reporting year in the country or territory in which it has its registered office or management board,

- the country or territory in which the parent company of that group of entities has its registered office or management board is a party to an international agreement ratified by the Republic of Poland, which is the basis for the exchange of tax information, but the competent authorities of that jurisdiction have not concluded within 12 months from the end of the reporting financial year  a qualifying contract between the competent authorities, to which the Republic of Poland is a party,

- the parent company's tax jurisdiction has suspended the automatic exchange of information about groups of entities or has consistently failed to comply with the automatic exchange of the information about the groups of entities.

According to the CbCR Regulation the information should include, inter alia:
- identification data of the companies forming the group of entities,

- the amount of revenue, realized profit (loss) before tax, income tax paid, paid income tax, income tax due, share capital, retained profits, number of employees, tangible assets (fixed and current), other non-cash assets ant their equivalents, including their division between countries or territories,

Employment agencies - new regulations  In June this year new regulations that are important for employment agencies from European Economic Area (EEA) operating in Poland are entering into force. The most important changes are:

Foreign entrepreneurs will be obliged to notify the appropriate voivodship marshal about their intention to start operations in Poland. This obligation mainly concerns the services of directing Polish employees to work abroad for the foreign employers. This is important in the context of entities operating in Poland, which provide employment placement services to a British company. In this case failure to submit such a notification may result in a fine amounting between PLN 3,000 and PLN 100,000.

The only possibility of directing employees to work abroad for foreign employers through employment agencies will be to place them directly with a foreign employer on the basis of a written contract concluded by these agencies with directed employees. Such a regulation means that it will be prohibited to direct employees from employment agencies operating in Poland to foreign employment agencies from EEA. Failure to comply with the aforementioned regulations may result in the imposition of a fine, not lower than PLN 4,000 for each violation.
