VAT on shopping centres

The famous case of our client from the Echo Prime Properties group, concerning VAT on shopping centres (case file number I FSK 293/17), ended with a victory before the Supreme Administrative Court.

We are pleased to announce that the Supreme Administrative Court ruled in its judgment that the advanced tax ruling held by the taxpayer should protect it since no facts changed in any way that would justify its repeal. What’s important, the Supreme Administrative Court referred to tax explanations issued in December regarding VAT on the sale of commercial real estate, pointing out that a transaction of this type, as in the facts of the case, is classified in it as a sale subject to VAT, which means that the buyer has the right to deduct input tax.

Attorneys in this case who fought the victorious battle on behalf of the client before the Supreme Administrative Court were: Bartosz Bogdański and Tomasz Olkiewicz, who were supported by Alicja Sarna, Tomasz Michalik and Krzysztof Suchorab.

Sincere congratulations on the victory!
