Don't know about clothing imports but there is more than one level of sales tax here. Next time you go to your local shop, have a look at the receipt. I don't have one in front of me right now, but remember that they show different amounts, usually at the bottom of the list by the total. Staple foods are taxed at a lower rate than say, pesto or chocolate.

Cheers Jonni, yea i noticed that the other day, and also that i was being charged for the bottle the beer came in :-) Have now started collecting these!

Its a steep learning curve, i only moved over 2 weeks ago, been trying to get the missus to investigate some of this for me, but its a slow process... :)

thanks again,

Try to keep the receipts for beer. Some shops have started asking to see them when you take the empties back. It isn't usually a problem if the staff know you, but if they don't, they may well ask for proof you bought the beer there.

Great tip, cheers.... Would look like the bottle man rolling round town trying to get rid of my empties :-)

When I lived in PoznaƄ (before the ban on outdoor drinking) there used to be a little old lady who sat in the main square and collected the empties to get the cash for them.

I'm too lazy to remember to take them back, and have a cupboard in the kitchen that I daren't open for fear of a deluge of bottles.

Hahahahaaa, we have the same cupboard situation! I lived in thailand for a bit and the thais used to hang around the beach snatching the empty bottle as you swigged the last drop! Always made me smile.....

Perhaps i have found a new vocation :-)

VAT is 22% on clothes, except baby clothes which are 7%.

Duty depends on the type of item and where it is coming from - get a Polish friend to check the Urzad Celny's webpages. Typically if from China or India it can be 10-15% but many products are totally exempt.

From the EU there is no import tax.

That's the EU 'luxury goods' VAT rule coming into play - that maddeningly seems to be interpreted differently according to where you are.

To the original poster - be warned, you'll have to pay VAT and duty when the goods arrive in Poland, and the VAT threshold is way, way lower than it is in the UK. Currently it's 50,000PLN, though there are discussions about raising it to 100,000PLN or higher.

You're not thinking about importing "Hugo Doss" or "LaCoast", commonly seen on dodgy markets? ;)

Merged: A small business idea in Plock. It'll be a retail shop with one employee.

Hi All,

Again i find myself here trying to clarify some info, Thanks in advance for any posts!!

Im looking to trial a small business idea in Plock, It will be a retail shop with one employee, (probably self employed employee) The trial is for 3 months so im looking of ways to do this company wise!

Would it be possible to use a umbrella company for this ? If they exist here? Is there a way i can do it without opening a Limited company? I have negotiated in principle a 3month rent of a retail shop, but if im not impressed with the figures after this time it will be closing thus incurring the Closing company fees!!

Any help would be appreciated

Merged: Import tax and sales tax of imported TV wall bracket in Poland.

Hallo people,

Good morning all and I have a question on the above headline. I planned on opening a small company importing TV wall bracket in Poland on my brand.

1: I need to understand the tax system on this area of business.
2: I need to understand the sales and personal income tax also.

3: I need to locate the market (buyers) and am competing on a low price with standard quality.

My brand are from smallest inches to the bigger inches.

Advise and suggestion from business minded fellows pls.

Regards all.

Import tax - check this site:
dutycalculator.com/country-guides/Import-duty-taxes-when-importing-into-Poland

Income taxes:
europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/work/taxes/income-taxes-abroad/poland/index_en.htm

I'm not sure if Poland is a good market for TV brackets. Big choice online for it, and prices aren't very high..
Check for "uchwyt TV" and compare prices:
