Poland VAT Refund For Visitors

Visitors to Poland may be able to get a refund of the Poland VAT tax paid on any goods bought for deportation. To get a VAT refund, you must present receipts for the goods purchased (and possibly proof of your deportation of the goods) to a Poland VAT refund station (which are often found in airports, tourist offices, or international travel hubs).

Some localities have a minimum purchase price for which a VAT refund can be claimed, or certain purchase types which cannot be made tax-free. A VAT refund of up to 23.00% of your total expenditures may be refunded for qualifying purchases. Regulations on VAT and sales tax refunds vary across countries and by region, so be sure to check ahead before expecting a Poland VAT refund.

Poland VAT Law For Businesses and Merchants

Businesses in Poland are required to collect a sales tax of 23.00% on behalf of the government, which they must submit to the applicable Poland revenue department in a periodical VAT tax return. Unlike the United States' sales tax, which is only charged on sales to end consumers, the VAT is collected on all sales - even of raw materials.

Businesses may be required to register for a Poland VAT number or other identifier to enable the government to track and verify VAT tax returns. VAT collection is a responsibility of the merchant, and failure to collect and submit the appropriate tax amounts may result in severe penalties.
