A 40% rise on some of them?
People said the Internet could not be controlled or censored, but China has succeeded in doing just that, meaning that it is feasible.
P3, you just don't get what the EU is about and what the internet allows.
I can sell goods from the UK to Poland and there is nothing that Poland can do to stop me. I won't pay tax to Poland and I will have no contact or interaction with Poland authorities whatsoever. This new tax will put Polish companies at a disadvantage and help non-Polish companies sell to Poles.
If Poland simply increased VAT, then the income would be the same and it wouldn't penalise Polish companies. Except that Slovakia, UK, Luxembourg have a lower VAT rate and the customers in Poland would pay that rate to the Slovakia, UK or Luxembourgian government.
Luxembourg are used by Playpal, Amazon, Apple etc to pay 15% to Luxembourg instead of 23% to Poland.
a good think-tank would come up with a way to deal with the tax problem and prevent evasion or circumvention.
Not difficult, but economically a catastrophe and utterly unacceptable to all major parties in Poland - Leave the EU.
