In Poland, it might be required to mark certain payment and invoices matching the criteria like the transaction amount and goods or services shipped, as a mandatory for usage of the split payment mechanism (net amount reaches regular bank account of the seller and VAT amount is transferred to a special VAT bank account).

To ensure the correctness of marking the transactions for such cases, the feature of Split payment automation could be set up.
This feature enables the automated control of the Split payment usage. For more details how to generate payment file using this method, see also here.
