since when is ZUS 220zl a month? I'm self employed and I pay all 3 parts of it. 523+233+46=802zl EVERY MONTH!!! Just on this reason alone, I am leaving Pl for good at the end of this month.
There is no way to get around ZUS in this country after you finish all your schooling.
There is no way to live in this country and save something for the future. 2,000,000 Poles are the ones who figured it out and have left for greener pastures.
Also.... when you say "there's no need for a residence permit" who (nationality) are you refering to exactly?
Have you ever heard of the "zameldowanie"?
How about the "Karta Pobytu/Zamieszkanie na czs oznaczony" card?
How about the application for residency where the applicant must provide:
payment records for the tax office,
payment record for ZUS,
new zameldowanie for 90 days during the application processing time,
act Notarlny for your business,
home rental contract, or ownership documentation.
proof the owner of your rented home is the legal owner and has permission to rent,
business premises contract,
year end financial reports from your book-keeper,
contract with your book-keeper,
birth certificate translated by a sworn translator
Income and stability reports from your book-keeper.
