Accommodation and other selected services transferred to 10% VAT rate

Thursday, July 9, 2020

The member companies of the AFI are highly qualified consulting professionals that strive to help investors and businesses impacted by the COVID-19 situation in many different ways. Here, our members have prepared views and informed opinions on various aspects of the crisis. The article below has been prepared by the global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services - EY.

Later this week, the so-called Anti-crisis Package designed to help entrepreneurs and companies overcome the adverse economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic should take effect.

The introduced changes include, inter alia, the transfer of selected services from the first reduced VAT rate (15%) to the second reduced VAT rate (10%). The following services are affected:

  • accommodation services;
  • admission fees to sports and cultural events;
  • use of sports facilities for sports activities;
  • services of Turkish baths, saunas and selected similar facilities;
  • passenger transport by ski lifts.

The reduced VAT rates will take effect on the day following the date of publication in the Collection of Laws. The effect should therefore be expected in the coming days, but the exact date is still unclear. Consequently, you should be prepared for potential change of the tax rate from one day to the next.

Other changes introduced by the anti-crisis package include, in particular, the rules for tax loss carryback (LCB) (HERE) and other selected changes (HERE).
