JPK on demand

Check how to minimize risk during a tax inspection

JPK on demand

JPK (eng. SAF, Standard Audit File) is a dataset comprising of all economic activity and operations carried out throughout a defined tax period. It was introduced to standardize and ease the control of documents and to identify irregularities and anomalies in VAT settlements.

Since July 1st, 2018, when performing inspections, tax authorities may demand submitting a part, or all the accounting books being kept. An entrepreneur must comply by sending the requested data to the Tax Office to facilitate verification activities.

Failure to send the JPK file, or it’s submission after the deadline, may result in the imposition of a disciplinary sanction. More importantly, in extreme cases, a taxpayer’s actions may be qualified as a fiscal offence.

JPK on demand – who does it concern?

The obligation of submitting the JPK file to the Tax Office applies to the following entities which keep accounting books via computer software:

  • micro enterprises (employing less that 10 people)
  • small enterprises (hiring 10 - 50 employees, with a maximum revenue of 10 mln euro)
  • medium enterprises (hiring up to 250 employees, with revenue not exceeding 43 mln euro).

Increasingly, tax authorities take advantage of IT tools for controlling taxpayers. An example of this is demanding the transfer of the JPK_FA file, or data concerning sales invoices in a logical structure specified by the Ministry of Finance. This issue is currently important as the deadline for generating these invoices is short and the program used by a company may not be able to generate this file on time. Not submitting this file on time results in a fine of up to 3300 PLN, or in extreme cases, penal fiscal responsibility with a fine of up to 120 daily rates.
