Check whether your operations require you to pay environmental fees

Environmental exploitation fees

Environmental exploitation fees are a tax obligation imposed on legal and natural persons exploiting the environment. The duty to prepare a report summarizing the nature of environmental impacts and to calculate the environmental fee rests on the enterprise. The fee for the calendar year is paid to the account of the province marshal’s office by 31 March of the following year.

When do you need it?

The subject of inspections by province environmental protection inspectors involving submission of annual reports and payment of environmental exploitation fees is primarily firms holding ISO 14001 certificates or integrated permits. A similar situation applies to all manufacturing firms with obligations to file reports with administrative offices. A similar situation applies to all manufacturing firms with obligations to file reports with administrative offices.

Entities obliged to file reports are also required to register in the online KOBiZE system, accessible to administrative authorities, which makes it much easier for officials to verify the need for a given enterprise to file reports.

Do I need it?

Even minor impact on the environment by a company carries tax and reporting obligations. If your business involves:

  • Emission of gases or particles from a boiler
  • Use of vehicles (including cars registered in the company name)
  • Manufacturing (in connection with technological processes)
  • Activities such as welding or painting
  • Intensive agriculture
  • Use of disinfectants (due to emission of alcohol)

there is a high probability that your business is subject to the obligation to pay environmental exploitation fees. The following are required to pay environmental exploitation fees:

  • 1. Businesses: Polish businesses (natural persons, legal persons, or organizational units without legal personality vested with legal capacity under separate regulations, performing economic activity)
  • Foreign businesses (foreign persons performing economic activity abroad, or a Polish citizen performing economic activity abroad)
  • Persons conducting productive activity in agriculture involving the cultivation of crops, raising or maintaining livestock, gardening, vegetable gardening, forestry or inland fishing
  • Organizational units which are not business entities
  • Natural persons who are not businesses or farmers, but are exploiting the environment, insofar as their exploitation of the environment requires a permit.
