1) What is the essence of the tax service?
EXANTE will cover the cost of preparation of annual tax reports for its clients in selected regions at no charge. Poland is on the list of selected regions.
The goal of this promotion is to significantly enhance the user experience for clients by providing them with fast and free taxation reports. In previous years our clients had to prepare their reports at their own expense (50-500 EUR per report depending on their service provider or tax advisor). Our offer removes one of the major entry barriers associated with international brokers and brings us to a level of service provided by domestic brokerages. Here are more details.
Our tax reporting process is slightly different from domestic brokerages as EXANTE does not provide official tax declaration forms (e.g. PIT8C in Poland). Instead, our partner provides calculations for clients to submit to the Tax Office. EXANTE is not a tax agent in Poland and does not submit reports for its clients automatically. EXANTE pays for the service of its partner company PitFx to do the hardest part of the job - all the calculations according to Polish taxation rules and correct official exchange rates applied.
2) What do I need to do to receive the tax calculation?
It’s as simple as just two clicks: tick the checkbox to agree with the terms and conditions of the offer and then click the request button. Your report will be ready in 6-8 weeks.
You will receive a notification when your report is ready. Download it from your Clients Area and submit it to the Tax Service.
The reports are handled by our trusted partner PitFx and we ensure the full security and anonymity of your data. Your agreement with the offer conditions implies your consent to disclose the data of your financial transactions for purposes of tax calculations to PitFx.
