Income tax paying in Poland / Odprowadzanie podatku dochodowego w Polsce

Hi,

This is my first year working on Upwork and I have no idea how to deal with the income tax payment. Does anyone from Poland have any experience in that matter? I need to mention that I don't run a firm.

Also filling correctly the VAT Number gap in settings appears a problem for me, status still says "not approved".

Thanks.

Hi Dariusz,

 

Please verify your VAT number in the VIES database and if it checks out there, it will also be accepted on Upwork. Try adding the number without spaces and let me know if it's accepted.

 

Hope other freelancer from Poland follow up here with more advice on your first question.

Should I add VAT number with my own name?

Dariusz, do you have an idea how to do it now? I'm in the same position and it drives me crazy. I'm an artist so this is especially disturbing, could you or someone help me with that?

Hi.

I would recommend to establish a one-man business. It makes many thinkgs more simple. And also, if you hadn't do it and tax office or social security will see you perform on Upwork continuosly, you can have serious problems - for social security and VAT. After you did it, it's problem for your accountant to do all tax-related things right way, and honestly it's not hard.

Cheers,

Lukasz

If you're a US citizen living in Poland and working on Upwork, am I liable for Polish taxes?

Hi Troy,

 

A local tax advisor, both in Poland and in the US will be able to advise you on your legal status and the taxes that might be due on your earnings on Upwork.

Dariusz czy udało Ci się rozwiązać ten problem? Nie mam zarejestrowanej firmy. Pracuję jako freelancer. Jak to się rozlicza? Co muszę zrobić? Ktoś, coś?
