KSeF: mandatory implementation cancelled, at least for now

23 January 2024 | Knowledge, News, Tax Focus

The implementation deadline of 1 July 2024 for the National e-Invoicing System (KSeF) has been suspended, announced the Minister of Finance. This news will certainly come as a relief to businesses who have long pointed out the ambiguities surrounding its implementation.

We have previously covered these issues in detail in Rzeczpospolita.

The Ministry justified its decision by citing a number of irregularities in the functioning of the system, which could have affected the stability of doing business.

Importantly, the current derogation for the KSeF expires on 31 December 2026. Assuming a new implementation date of 1 January 2025, Poland will have to start the process of applying for a new derogation after one year of KSeF operation.

Will Poland be granted a new derogation? This question remains open.

It is worth noting that the Minister has not set an exact KSeF implementation deadline. An approximate date will be given after an external audit.

The relevant tender was launched on 19 January 2024. Consultations with businesses are also planned in the near future to improve the functioning of the system.
