Finance Minister Tadeusz Kościński said that the change would not affect VAT rates themselves. Simplifying VAT payments will be possible through the use of electronic receipts and invoices, and online cash registers, according to the report.

Deputy Finance Minister Jan Sarnowski said that exporters would be among those who stand to benefit from the new system. The finance ministry wants the changes to come into force early next year, according to the IAR agency.
