Exemptions from ZUS contributions and downtime benefits will be extended


The Ministry of Development plans to extend by 3 months the reliefs for companies most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, including exemptions from social security (ZUS) contributions and further payments of downtime benefits.

The Deputy Minister of Development Olga Semeniuk has announced the planned extension by another three months of the provisions on exemptions from ZUS contributions and further payments of downtime benefits for the companies which have been most adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Ministry has been currently analysing declines in turnover in particular industries on the basis of the Polish Classification of Activities (PKD) codes, in order to select the sectors with the highest declines and thus to specify the companies which will be entitled to take further advantage of the reliefs.

The further payments of the downtime benefit and the exemption from ZUS for another three months will be counted as of June and are to be introduced under the law on anti-crisis shield measures, which the Ministry has been already working on.

By 3 August, 4.5 billion zlotys of downtime benefits were paid out, and the cost of exemptions from social security contributions was 16.6 billion zlotys, the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Policy announced in a press release.
