Tax on certain financial institutions

As of 1 February 2016, the Act of 15 January 2016 on tax on certain financial institutions came into force, which covered, among other things, banks and insurance companies. The tax is charged on the surplus of an entity’s total assets above PLN 4 billion; in the case of banks, the assessment is based on the trial balance as at the end of each month. Banks are entitled to reduce the tax base by deducting such items as e.g. own funds or the value of Treasury securities. Additionally, banks reduce the tax base by the value of assets acquired from the NBP, constituting collateral of a refinancing loan granted by the NBP. The tax rate for all taxpayers is 0.0366% per month, and the tax is paid monthly by the 25th of the month following the month to which it relates. The tax was paid for the first time for February 2016. The tax paid is not tax-deductible for corporate income tax purposes.
