The amount of ZUS contributions paid by entrepreneurs is determined in relation to the amount of the average forecast remuneration in a given year. The amount of the limitation of the annual assessment base for pension insurance contributions is also important.

Health insurance contribution 2022

Starting from 1 January, the rules for determining the amount of health insurance contributions will change dramatically, all due to the entry into force of the Polish Order, a package of tax acts.

The health insurance contribution will depend not only on the form of taxation chosen by an entrepreneur (lump sum or flat tax), but also on the income generated.

The deadlines for paying the health insurance contribution will also change, the health insurance contribution will be calculated against income and payable by the 20th of the given month at the latest.
