Poland stated before that they reduce their Standard VAT rate from 23% to 22%. However, they quietly dropped the plans to cut the standard VAT rate.

Hence, some adjustments are required for the BA default EU VAT algorithm after the 6.0.8 update installation, or after application of the original (previously offered) script from the KB article.


To perform manual adjustments under provider and each of affected reseller:

  1. Go to System > Settings > Taxation > Taxes.
  2. Select Poland VAT (VAT_PL), then click Add New Tax Rate.
  3. Specify 01-January-2016 in the Effective since box, and enter the corresponding value into the Rate field.
  4. Click Add.

To apply new tax rates to provider and all resellers (performed only under the provider account) automatically:

For Linux installations:

  1. Download to BA application server
  2. Stop BA:

    /etc/init.d/pba stop
  3. Run the script and wait until it completes:

  4. Start BA:

    /etc/init.d/pba start

For Windows installations:

  1. Download to $PBA_ROOT directory on BA Application node

  2. Stop BA:

    net stop pba
    net stop ssm
  3. Run the script and wait until it completes:

    # cd "$PBA_ROOT"
    # perl\bin\perl.exe tools\
  4. Start BA:

    net start ssm
    net start pba

Note: $PBA_ROOT should be replaced with the path to Business Automation installation directory, for example C:\Program Files\Parallels\PBA.
