Although for many years the size of the shadow economy in Poland has remained at the level of 18% of GDP, it is estimated that in 2022 its value will increase to 590 billion PLN. The data provided by the General Inspector of Financial Information and supervisory institutions operating under the AML Act indicate that last year the authorized bodies carried out 689 inspections in the country. Taking into account the size of the phenomenon, can we thus conclude that the system for counteracting financial crime is effective?
