Under what conditions do I have to take care of a VAT ID
and returns in Poland?
Exceeding the threshold of PLN 160,000
Anyone who sells goods from another EU member state to Poland within one calendar year and exceeds a country-specific limit (registration threshold) of PLN 160,000 must register for VAT in Poland.
The thresholds in Europe are intended to make trade easier and not always lead to an immediate obligation to register. However, if the threshold is exceeded within a year, then a registration is mandatory and thus also VAT advance returns, Intrastat, summary declarations, etc.
In Poland the delivery threshold for sales tax is 160,000 PLN (approx. 37,000€). Accordingly, online traders selling to Poland must take care of VAT registration in Poland if they sell goods worth more than PLN 160,000 to Poland within a calendar year from another EU country.
Storage in Poland
Storage in Polish warehouses
Apart from reaching the annual delivery threshold Poland, traders must also register for VAT there if goods are stored in Poland.
Through the Central Europe Program, for example, which Amazon FBA sellers can choose to use, storage is extended to Poland and the Czech Republic in addition to Germany. This means that because of the storage in additional Amazon warehouses, additional registrations become mandatory.
Note: Advance VAT returns are generally mandatory from the day of the first storage.
