The planned vote on a bill to overhaul Poland’s value-added tax (VAT) rate system for food products was delayed at the Sejm, the lower chamber of the Polish parliament, after opposition MPs submitted motions to reject the legislation in its first reading. The draft bill is now expected to be amended before further legislative work.
