<TAXATION: Commission Suspends Polish Shopping Centre Tax

Polish Tax on the retail real estate sector

The Commission has initiated a formal investigation and issued a suspension injunction on the basis of its preliminary finding that the tax was deliberately designed to arbitrarily favour small shops with low turnover and disadvantage larger undertakings with high turnover, most of which are foreign.

The Commission is so motivated and well informed that it seems unlikely that EPF will need to intervene, especially as the government appears to be preparing to back down.
