Poland introduces the combined SAF-T VAT (JPK_V7M/K), otherwise known as the VDEK declaration, from October 1, 2020. The new VAT declaration replaces the SAF-T and VAT return filings.

What’s Changing?

Poland introduces a new declaration to replace SAF-T and VAT return filings from October 1, 2020. This is the combined SAF-T VAT (JPK_V7M/K), also known as the VDEK declaration. The Polish Government delayed the new declaration from July 1, 2020 as a result of COVID-19.

Data Requirements

The new VDEK structure is an extended scheme of the SAF-T file in Poland. The VDEK changes the data structure to combine information previously included in several files and includes new fields to reflect VAT return data.

The tax authorities require more detailed data requirements for the monthly submission compared to the previous SAF-T file. This will reduce fraud and Poland’s €4.4mn VAT gap.

Data Deadlines

This new declaration is a monthly requirement; with the first VDEK declaration for the period covering October 2020 due before November 25, 2020.
