The Polish Ministry of Finance recently issued a press release announcing that the launch of the compulsory national e-invoicing system (KSeF), originally slated for mandatory use starting July 1st, 2024, has been deferred to an unspecified future date. The ministry intends to set a new launch date following an external IT audit of the KSeF system. Consultations with the private sector were also taken into account when deciding on the postponement.
The exact consequences of the delay and the revised schedule are not yet known. In the meanwhile, the ongoing testing phase has been extended. Partners exclusively billed via the KSeF system are still obliged to accept the e-invoices. In all other cases, it is recommended that invoices be sent to recipients in parallel.
Recommendations and support
Despite the postponement of the mandatory implementation date, we advise companies to take advantage of the delay to integrate the system at an early date. This will ensure they have enough time for process integration and tests, while also gaining valuable experience in working with the portal and dealing with special cases and errors.
