Update on Fixed Establishment (FE)

In a continuation of the FE issue in Poland published in the IVA newsletter in March 2020, please find the new facts below.

In June 2020, a foreign company with a Polish VAT registration has received a negative tax ruling regarding FE for the manufacturing services which have been commissioned on entrusted materials to the Polish contractor. The tax authorities decided that the company has a fixed establishment in Poland, arguing that the company has control over the contractor’s personnel and technical facilities.

Note from the editors: this decision seems to be the same approach as the argumentation in recent case law, see HERE.
