The National e-Invoicing System will not go into effect on July 1st, 2024. This surprising decision was announced on Friday, January 19th, by Finance Minister Andrzej Domański. Allegedly, the decision is attributed to identified errors, deemed significant enough to pose a potential threat to the stability of the invoicing transmission structure. The KSeF regulations have been postponed with no certain details on the next date.
According to Finance Ministry estimates, up to 100 million invoices per day could pass through the new mandatory system as early as July 1st, 2024. Therefore, all the more room for errors and glitches.
At the same time, the Finance Ministry has not announced a new release date for KSeF. However, the statement suggests that the system will be introduced in 2025 at the earliest.
The statement reveals that the next step in the process of introducing the mandatory KSeF system will be to perform a thorough audit of the system to locate critical errors. The ministry is preparing the details of a tender for an external audit of the system, which will include cooperation and consultation with Polish entrepreneurs at subsequent stages of the work.
The minister expressed hope that KSeF could be introduced as soon as possible.
The decision has already been commented on by major Polish financial services. The prevailing opinion is that the postponement of the KSeF’s entry into force in the face of the errors detected is a good decision, which gives entrepreneurs an additional buffer to prepare their internal accounting systems.
