On January 26, 2022, Polish Parliament adopted an amendment to the VAT Act, reducing VAT rates on certain goods, such as:
- food products previously subject to the 5% VAT rate – reduction to 0% VAT rate,
- fertilizers – VAT rate reduction from 8% to 0%,
- fuels – VAT rate reduction from 23% to 8%.
The reduced VAT rates are supposed to apply temporarily from February 1 to July 31, 2022.
According to the information posted on the President’s website, the President has already signed the amendment. This means that the amendment is only awaiting publication in the Journal of Laws, which is only a formality.
