Featured! – Creating an empty JPK file (Poland)

As of 1 July 2016, new regulations with respect to the obligation of how to provide tax and financial data to tax authorities came into force in Poland. As a consequence, a standardized procedure for the tax authority’s requests concerning tax books and tax evidence was put into place: Jednolity Plik Kontrolni – the United Control File (JPK).

Since then, JPK is the legally defined format (XML) for electronic submission to the tax authorities in Poland. In the beginning, the regulation only concerned large companies. However, as of 1 July 2018, JPK will be mandatory for small and medium enterprises, too.

No VAT transactions

In case there are no Sales invoices created for a certain period and therefore, no registered VAT transactions for the required period are available, Polish companies are still legally required to send the tax authorities an empty control file.

Enhanced functionality

As of Product Update 414SP3 , the checkbox Create empty file and the corresponding date range field have been added to the software. You can find this option in the VAT returns section, in the VAT returns & Invoices tab, which can be accessed via menu path Finance ➔ VAT/Statistics ➔ Audit file. Please see the corresponding Release note to read more about this functionality. Please note that this enhancement is applicable only to the VAT returns and not invoices.
