Laws governing RET and other local taxes have been in place for over 25 years, but the many changes along the way have drastically changed their initial shape. In addition, not only the laws are changing, but also the judicature varies greatly. On the other hand companies often pay little attention to RET, focusing on other taxes such as CIT or VAT. Although the calculation of RET may seem simple, companies often make mistakes in interpreting the law and overpay the amount due.
