Settlements with public authorities: On 6 September, a supplement to Rzeczpospolita daily published an article entitled Administracja będzie godzić się z kontrahentami by Jakub Janik, a legal counsel with SENDERO Tax & Legal. It deals with so-called “creditor pack” and suggests ways to effectively conclude disputes with public authorities. Jakub discusses a regulation expressly allowing authorities to settle with businesses. The authorities should look for the best way to resolve a dispute, including by striving to settle it if the effect appears better than the likely outcome of the dispute. Importantly, authorities must prepare settlement benefit analyses. This is kind of a legal framework for their strategies, one that can benefit businesses, including by helping them to define bargaining positions of both parties to the dispute. For full text of the article, see Rzeczpospolita on-line or here.
