Robotics relief is intended to allow enterprises to take an additional deduction of 50% of eligible costs incurred on robotics, regardless of the taxpayer’s size or industry. According to ministry proposals, the relief is expected to be introduced in 2021 and remain in force for five years, to facilitate the greatest possible technological upgrading of Polish enterprises and to encourage the largest number of persons to invest in robotics.

Why is it worth considering?

Robotics relief is expected to be available to payers of both personal income tax and corporate income tax. However, as of now the final form of the relief is not yet known, nor the conditions for claiming it, because draft regulations have not been released yet. We remain optimistic, however, as the ministry claims that the relief is primarily aimed at supporting Polish firms on the path to innovation and increasing their competitiveness at the international level.
