A draft regulation by the Minister of Finance is set to elevate the SAF-T Poland accounting file (JPK_KR) from optional to mandatory for Corporate Income Tax (CIT) settlements. This regulatory change under the Corporate Income Tax Act aims to enhance transparency and streamline the efficiency of tax audits, ensuring comparability between submitted records, financial statements, JPK_VAT including VAT returns and e-invoicing data from the KSeF system. The consultation phase is currently underway, and the regulation is slated to take effect on January 1, 2025.

  • January 1, 2026: Extending to other Corporate Income Tax and Personal Income Tax taxpayers obliged to submit JPK_VAT.
  • January 1, 2027: Enforced for all Corporate Income Tax taxpayers.
  • Identification data of the taxpayer’s contractor.
  • Invoice identification number in the National e-Invoice System (KSeF reference number).
  • Markings (tags) identifying booking accounts at the level of the trial balance (“ZOiS”) segment.
  • Data confirming the acquisition, creation, or removal from the record of a fixed asset or intangible asset.

    ◽ tax revenue which is not balance sheet revenue
