Firstly, every Polish entrepreneur is obliged to get VAT number if sales during tax year exceed the limit of PLN 200 000 (around EUR 45 000). However, if business activity starts during the tax year, this limit must be calculated in proportion to the number of months remaining to the end of the calendar year. Polish company must register as a VAT Payer in Poland, regardless of the amount of sale, also if it operates within the field of specified business activity indicated in Polish VAT Act.
If your company is subject to VAT tax in Poland, you must apply to the revenue office on a VAT-R form with the local Tax Authorities.
