Less than in the uK or Ireland but I don't know either where to find the official info.

What are the taxes on benefits for small businesses?

There is no one income tax rate although the standard is 19%.

There are some who can pay zryczałtowany podatek, which is a flat rate system. It is a permanent and constant thing whereby u can't buy sth for ur firm and claim VAT back for it.

I have a teaching firm and, should I choose to buy a printer, my financial advisor would chop the necessary amount off. I cannot get VAT deducted as that's not the nature of my concern.

I'm with a firm called Profit but I'm sure u could find a financial agency in ur city

Definitely, I agree Greg. I get hacked off at the 19% rate but I'm actually quite close to the 30% rate so I should shut my mouth and quit while I'm ahead. I think some part of my income gets taxed at 30%.

Let's do the Math. Let's say u live here in Silesia. If u get 5,000zł, u can take 1000zł off through rent and utilities (media). An extra 800zł from ZUS if u r in ur 3rd year of ur company. 750zł tax. So, half of it goes. If u have kids and a car, u will lose money quite quickly.
