Wedding and data update


A wedding, an elegant ceremony, and then a honeymoon ... Well, not really. It may be necessary to visit the tax office. Updating the entrepreneur's personal data is subject to notification to the Tax Office within the statutory deadline. Importantly, the obligation to submit changes, contrary to expectations, does not apply to women.

Getting married may mean changing your surname or place of residence, and such data is of interest, among others, to tax office. For some taxpayers, failure to report an update of personal data may even result in receiving a tax mandate. The need to quickly report changes to the taxpayer's personal data applies primarily to entrepreneurs, but sooner or later also people who do not conduct business will be obliged to inform about the changes.

Updating of data in the Tax Office for people who do not conduct business

Persons subject to the PESEL register, who do not conduct business, are not active VAT payers and ZUS payers, are not required to immediately update their data, i.e. name or address of residence at the tax office. The change of name is automatically recorded in the PESEL register, and offices have an ongoing access to the changed data. So there is no need to report the name change in person. However, when it comes to changing the place of residence, the office can be informed about it when submitting the annual PIT tax return.

Of course, taxpayers do not have to wait for the end of the year. If they want to make changes earlier, they must complete the ZAP-3 form. In this way, they can report a change of the place of residence, but also the change of the bank account number.

Businesses need to hurry

People running a business have no choice but to update their place of residence within 7 days of this change. This applies to both entrepreneurs, active VAT payers and ZUS contribution payers. Currently, data update is reported on one CEIDG-1 form, where it is enough to select only selected fields related to the update field and complete by providing new data. Entrepreneurs entered into CEIDG do not have to update data separately in each institution. Information entered on the basis of an application sent to the central register is automatically transferred to tax offices, social insurance institutions, as well as to the main statistical office.

The notification of a change of place of residence may affect the change of the tax office competent for the taxpayer. This is one of the reasons why you should update your data within a week.

Active VAT taxpayers not subject to entry in CEIDG and payers of taxes and social security contributions not subject to the central register, also obligatorily report the change by completing the NIP-7 application.

Data update - failure to do so may result in a penalty

Failure to keep your data up-to-date, for example after getting married, can turn out to be costly. Tax offices may impose a tax fine on the taxpayer for committing the above-mentioned act. The entrepreneur may also be requested by representatives to update the data under the threat of deleting the company from the register of entrepreneurs. Therefore, it is worth meeting the expectations of the tax office and fulfilling the obligations within the statutory deadline, i.e. 7 days from the date of the change in the data.
