How do you establish, settle and operate a VAT Group?

Dedicated workshop for companies

The situation in Ukraine has caused an unprecedented influx of refugees into Poland. Thousands of people crossing the Polish border have already found employment in Polish companies, taking advantage of the facilitations introduced by the Special Purpose Act.

Do you know that:

  • employment of Ukrainian citizens within the territory of Poland results in certain tax obligations both on the part of the employee (contractor) as well as the Polish tax remitter.These obligations may be shaped differently depending on the legal form of employment, the place of work, the content of declarations made by the foreigner and his/her individual personal situation;
  • the revolution in taxes, i.e. the so-called Polish Deal, also affects the settlement rules for foreign employees.While the end of 2022 is approaching, tax remitters are about to face the daunting task of correctly preparing the annual tax information for employees, with the need to adapt to further tax changes from 2023 already on the horizon;
  • in addition to the tax elements, the employment of Ukrainian citizens entails numerous problems and uncertainties in terms of labour and immigration regulations.The prerequisite for the proper employment of a foreigner is for him/her to have legal residence within the territory of Poland and a basis for legalising work in Poland, which, in the conditions of constant changes in the regulations on the employment of foreigners, poses quite a challenge for Polish employers.

During the workshop, experts from MDDP’s Personal Tax and Employer Advisory Practice, in cooperation with experts from Osborne Clarke Law Firm’s Labour Law Practice, will analyse the specifics of the conditions of employment of employees and associates from Ukraine under  various legal provisions effective in Poland. 

We aim to provide participants with specific, practical knowledge beyond the mere content of the legislation. As a rule, we answer any questions raised before or during the workshop.

    • when is the payer exempt from withholding an advance payment / lump sum for PIT
    • contractors’ declarations – how do they affect the tax remitter’s obligations

  5. What should you bear in mind when preparing the annual PIT-11 or IFT-1?
  6. Social and health insurance contributions
