Treasury Day in Poland Date in the current year: July 31, 2017

Treasury Day in Poland Treasury Day (Dzień Skarbowości) is an official professional holiday celebrated in Poland on July 31. It was observed for the first time in 2008 at the initiative of the Ministry of Finance and officially became a statutory holiday in 2010.

The history of Treasury Day is closely linked to the history of Poland, and the roots of the holiday can be traced back to 1918. That year, the Second Polish Republic, officially known as the Republic of Poland, was established in the aftermath of the First World War. The government of the Second Polish Republic led by Józef Piłsudski immediately began to implement political, economic and social reforms.

One of the reforms included the adoption of the act on the temporary organization of the treasury and tax authorities. The act was adopted on July 31, 1919. The anniversary of this event was designated as Treasury Day. According to Jacek Rostowski who served as the Minister of Finance of Poland from 2007 to 2013, the main goal of the holiday is to integrate the fiscal administration environment and build a common identity for all professionals who work in this field.

Treasury Day is a professional holiday of all employees of Poland’s tax authorities and treasury. It was declared by statute in 2010, and as a statutory holiday it is a working day unless falling on a weekend.
