· Jul 2020: all other taxpayers
The Polish SAF-T (JPK_VAT) is being extended to including the VAT register plus VAT credit details.

The reporting standard was developed by the OECD in 2005, and has been adopted by nine EU countries. It is designed to enable to the consistent and efficient electronic exchange of tax transaction data between companies and the tax authorities.
