The EU General Data Protection Regulation has been in force for one year now. It is said that 2018 was the year of the GDPR and one of the most frequently repeated facts during this period was the potential severe penalties to be imposed for personal data breach.
The lawyers of KSP Legal & Tax Advice together with Andersen Global experts have prepared a brief comparative analysis including infringements and sanctions imposed in selected EU countries. How has Poland coped with the personal data reform compared with the other EU countries? Has the Chairman of the Polish Personal Data Protection Authority been more restrictive and demanding than in other EU States?
We encourage you to analyse the cases of infringements and sanctions regarding the GDPR across Europe so as to avoid the risk of high fines in your own enterprise.

The obligation of mandatory disclosure of tax schemes (MDR) took effect on 1 January 2019. Given the vague understanding of the regulations and the possibility for many transactions and activities performed by taxpayers being classified as tax schemes, to minimize the risk, entrepreneurs should take into account the regulations while planning their future transactions which may give rise to reporting obligations.
What are tax schemes and who needs to report them to the National Fiscal Administration (KAS), who does the reporting apply to and what are the procedures? Our experts will be pleased to answer these questions.
The KSP Law Firm has developed the methodology and has just opened a new practice – Mandatory Disclosure (MDR), which provides training to entrepreneurs and assists them at every stage of the reporting procedure.
We are ready to assist you in preparation for the new legal requirements. You are welcome to contact us.
