Poland gives extra time to prepare for taxation by setting 0% starting rate

The Polish government is to delay imposing excise tax on e-liquids and novel tobacco products – due to commence on 1st January 2019 – by setting a 0% rate until the end of June 2020.

The amendment to the excise bill was unveiled in a document approved by the Council of Ministers yesterday, 20th November, following consultations with the industry.

“The draft bill takes into account the demands of entrepreneurs from this industry who say there is a need to extend the time available to prepare themselves for new fiscal obligations,” the Chancellery of the Prime Minister (KPRM) said in the document.

E-liquids were to be taxed at PLN0.50 (€0.12) per ml from the new year. The Ministry of Finance also foresees an excise stamp fee of PLN2 (€0.46) for novel tobacco products.
