Poland VAT on bad debts

The Polish tax authorities have introduced improved relief for VAT paid on receivables that have gone bad.

From 1 July 2015, companies may reclaim output VAT paid in a VAT return if the debt is not recovered after 150 days. In addition, if the customer goes into administration, the vendor may claim a refund sooner than this limit.
