Poland 2% supermarket sales tax

The new Polish Law & Justice Party government has proposed a sales tax on larger retailers.

The tax would be levied at 2% on sales of retailers with stores above 250 square meters. This may be introduced on a tapering scale of between 0.5% and 2%.

The implementation date could be 1 January 2016 or later in the Spring
