Please note: On 01.10.2021, the Polish viaTOLL system will be replaced for HGVs over 3.5 tonnes and buses on sections of motorways, dual carriageways and national roads (publicly operated sections) with a new, satellite-based toll system called e-TOLL. Thus, viaBox toll boxes can no longer be used as of 01.10.2021. Users will need to replace their units with a compatible system. UTA is working on a suitable options and will be in touch with customers shortly. 

Through Poland with UTA

If you plan to traverse Poland or end your ride here, you need to inform yourself on the local circumstances before you start, as the mandatory tolls for road users and the road network are not uniform. One can only establish that part of the motorways A1, A2 and A4 currently observe a mandatory toll for all motor vehicles.

In addition to the state toll operating company Szef KAS (Szefem Krajowej Administracji Skarbowej) there exist in Poland three further, private concessionaires which levy toll fees on different motorways or on partial stretches of these.

UTA will inform you below in detail about whether you, when driving a passenger car or > 3.5 t vehicle on a specific route, are subject to mandatory tolls, and we provide you with practical solutions.

Your tax advantages in Poland

In Poland, the toll collected through the GITD already counts as an official levy and therefore no additional taxes apply to this fee.

On the other hand, on the privately held sections of the A 1, A 2 and A 4 motorways, taxes are levied on usage fees, which business owners can have reimbursed. The current tax rate in Poland is 23%.

Through a power of attorney, our service provider can complete an application on your behalf and manage all associated correspondence. This saves you administrative effort and worrying about language barriers!
