/ Polish Residency - Zameldowanie to be abolished?
I moved to Poland in October, and would like to stay and work here for some time. I am still a University student in the UK, on a long-term break.
I know that to be here for longer than 3 months, which, I already have (am I in trouble here?), even though I am also from the EU, I need an EU short-term Polish residency. I visited the place where this is supplied, and I was told what I need to produce, which is:
- Correctly filled application form (4 copies)
- Photocopy of Passport (4 copies)
- 2 x Passport sized photos
- Proof of medical cover insurance
- Photocopy of European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) (4 copies)
- Proof of income (POLISH BANK ACCOUNT only! - not English bank account) bank statement
Is there anything missing, that I should be including?
I have also been told, that instead of supplying a bank statement as proof of income (because I don't yet have a Polish bank account), I can instead supply, a formal letter of employment to them, from a company I work for in Poland.
I started working as a native English speaker in November, for a school in Warsaw. So they can supply this document of employment.2nd Problem - Contracts, Taxes & NIP
Now, I have really got myself in a mess here ... please let me explain ...
My school can produce this letter of employment, but they assume that they must also include a copy of my contract of employment with this. This may be true so I am assuming it is.
The problem is, I don't have a NIP no. at the moment, so I am pretty sure I cannot be paying TAX, even though my school are collecting around 18% "TAX" from my wages - how?
So if I am not paying TAX, my school cannot complete my contract details and send it with this letter of employment to the organsation sorting my residency. This is because it looks like (and probably is) I am not paying taxes, and therefore, working illegally.
I don't know how things have got this complex.
I would really appreciate some advice and suggestions on what my next steps are and what information I should be looking into.
