In January, the tax act of the Polish Order, adopted at an express pace, enters into force. It has 270 pages and is the largest tax amendment in 30 years, changing the provisions of as many as 26 acts. For entrepreneurs, it means major changes in taxation rules: higher and completely differently calculated health insurance premium. For each form of taxation (according to the scale, flat rate, flat rate or tax card) – it will be calculated differently and based on a different assessment basis.

Meanwhile, there is still no government information center that was to explain the changes introduced by the Polish tax order, or the announced hotline. Only the Social Insurance Institution has recently published a table with new basis of assessment for individual groups, and now it has announced the launch of a special calculator.

– We are aware that, especially in the initial period of application of the new rules, there may be a few doubts. That is why ZUS takes a proven initiative and provides a calculator – says prof. Gertruda Uścińska, president of the Social Insurance Institution.

As he adds, this tool will make it easier to determine the basis of the health insurance premium and to calculate the amount of the premium due.

– After entering the necessary data, such as the tax period, form of taxation, the amount of income or income, the calculator will help to determine the basis of the assessment and calculate the amount of the premium due for a given month – explains President Uscińska.

The calculator will be made available on the website www.zus.pl. Ultimately, it will also be available in the Płatnik and ePłatnik programs.

ZUS emphasizes that the payer should pay all due contributions that he is obliged to pay (i.e. for all insurance and funds, and not only for the health insurance itself), with one transfer to the individual NRS account number assigned to him.

The settlement of the payment made on the account is made on the basis of the billing documents submitted for a given month, provided, however, that there were no arrears for previous periods. In this case, in the first place, the previous payments will be settled from the payment, and the difference in contributions for the current month will have to be paid. This must be taken into account if you plan to pay the contributions due for December this year in December.

As Interia wrote, paying ZUS contributions for December this year (even though it can be paid in January) gives you the option to deduct it from tax, which allows you to save almost PLN 330.
