At Monday’s press conference in Krakow, former Deputy Prime Minister Jarvisov Gwen approved of the amendment. Bring a 700 page draft. – MPs had 24 hours to read the latest version. All in all, Polish businessmen will have to deal with the content of this law from January 1. In his opinion, “you should not legislate like this, especially on a sensitive issue like taxes.”
As he estimated, the Polish deal would mean that each of us would have to pay a lot more, and small family businesses would be particularly vulnerable. “In a few years, we will all remember the family neighborhood stores with old memories, because they will be replaced by huge hypermarkets,” he said.
