What is deducted from a salary in Poland apart from Income tax?

She is working as Test Engineer.

I think she's also got a good chance of finding work, so consider this as well. What you could try is asking your company if they can assist with finding work for her in Warsaw - it will cost them nothing, so they might well agree. Don't be afraid to ask for help!

The important thing is to put the effort in - she has the background, so she should get out there and attend events such as geekgirlscarrots.org/2802/42-geek-girls-carrots-warsaw - GGC events are *fantastic* for networking. There's absolutely no reason why she shouldn't find work in Poland.

Make your plans on the very safe assumption that she will not be able to earn a single penny in Poland, unless she happens to be an IT specialist with abundant experience in some exotic skill set that is highly in demand.

More nonsense. There are plenty of jobs going in such environments.

Hi, I live in Southampton now and I have friends from many countries - they always ask similar questions about earnings in Poland. I was working in Poland for years and I still have registered business there - still know a lot about taxes, law etc.

So I made simple calculator for this purpose: calculla.com/salary_in_poland - I hope the explanation there is enough to understand the subject :)

Hi,

From when taxation apply for Non-European in Poland?

I may travel to Poland by September to work. If i understand correctly, financial year in Poland is from Jan to Dec.

So if i earn for 4 months, say september to Dec.. How much do i need to pay tax?

If i am not wrong, in some countries taxation for non-National is applicable after 6 months stay in Country. Correct me if i am wrong.

Kindly help me on this, your suggestion/replies would be helpful.

Hello Jake,

I earn similar, you will get around 4200 netto after around 30% cut. I think you can find a studio flat around about 1400-2000 depending on the location and the condition of the house-including all expenses like electricity, water and so on.

When I was single I was spending around 600-900 PLN for food-I mostly cook at home myself. If you have car lets say you full the depot once a month 200-300 PLN, if you do not have for public transport I am guessing 100 PLN. Some extras for you when you go out, drink beer, if you smoke-cigarettes- lets say 500 PLN

If you are a person who is not spending a lot, you may spend around 3000-3500, and around 700-1200 will be left for you. Of course I am generally taking into account what I am spending. You will be okay with that amount but not so comfortable.

You can pay a lot less than that, and most people do. One poster here recommends 60zl per week, however that is crazily low. I would say 500zl per month for a single person shopping very carefully.

you may spend around 3000-3500

That's more than many people earn, especially in Krakow, however yes, it's a reasonable amount if you like to go out etc.

Yes John of course that is possible, I was assuming that Jake would want to have comfortable life. When I had to, I was spending around 400-500 for food.

That's more than many people earn, especially in Krakow, however yes, it's a reasonable amount if you like to go out etc.

A big yes for this one either, again example of me, with 2400 pln I lived for 1 year, it was not so comfortable but I was still okay with that. The problem with lower wages that you always have to think about whenever you spend something :)

istanbullu i am Turkish too, i cannot send you priv. msgs, will you pls msg me ?

Hello Elturco- sorry I am not using messaging- if you wonder some things please open a topic I will gladly comment.

Merged: Salary

If a person gets paid 13,000 źl per month, what would the amount of tax need to be paid ? And what are the other things that gets deducted ?
jon357 65 | 13,618

About 4000 zl in tax and national insurance. It does vary from month to month (they use a weird system), and it also depends on the type of contract you have but assuming it's a full contract of employment, most months you'll get about 9000

Good day guys!

I have a question regarding the yearly income tax.
My company has provided me an apartment as it was included in the offer for the job. I was living in Spain previously and now in Warsaw.

Now i have been told that the rent of the apartment will have to be included in the yearly income and i will pay much more taxes and earn less salary because of this. How is this possible if the company offered to pay for my rent? In the contract i only have the salary income and nothing refers this extra cost of rent. I am at the moment changing my fiscal residence to Poland as it is more benefitial than back in Spain.

Thanks for your help!
really appreciate it!

Essentially, it's a taxable benefit. They are paying your rent in lieu of extra salary, but the tax office sees it all as income on your part. You should ask your company to give you a pay increase to cover the extra taxes owed.

Hi there,
quick question.
In many posts this tax calculator is referenced:
wynagrodzenia.pl/kalkulator.php

However, as I understand, the figures are true if you are single.
If you have a spouse and specifically in the case if she/he has no income, the net figures are higher.
I have checked this here (you have an option to choose joint declaration option)
calculla.com/salary_in_poland

Please advise:
* if it is true that you can have tax deductions if you are officially married and your wife has no income?
* if you have only one job and taxes paid by employer - is it possible to report a joint declaration through employer?
* Are there any further deductions for the families with children (we have two)?
* are there any tax deductions for expenses like interest fees for mortgage loans, medical expenses, etc.?

I lived in Szczecin for a year. I was living decently with less than 3,000 a month, including a studio flat, food, and a couple of nights out per week. I have the feeling that people commenting here have a higher standard of living than most polish people I know, especially when I read that 4,000 net would barely meet the minimum in the cities. Probably I am wrong, but university professors make 3/4000 a month. I know a doctor who works at night in a hospital for 30PLN per hour.

Most of the doctors and lecturers on that sort of money have access to cheap mortgages rather than renting and various other benefits. I also suspect the doctor you mention was quite young.

@Marian: to go along what you have written: I have a client whose uncle is a doctor somewhere in Mazury according to whom doctors receive 20zl from NFZ for each patient. However doctors receive quite a "lot" of money from NFZ in case of surgical acts and as a result a lot of patients are oriented to very often unnecessary surgery. If true (my client is reliable, he does not tell crap), it's very scary....

I see, InPolska. I also know a lecturer who makes 2,200 net per month. Again, it seems really weird to me that people keep saying that 4/5,000 are not enough for Poland. There are tons of foreigners (and Poles) living in London (or UK) and they make that much. 200 pounds per week in London, which not everyone makes, are less than 5,000 zlotys.

@Marian: I agree with you:)! When people in PF say that one cannot make it on 4/5,000, they mean AS westerners. Most Poles don't even make 3,000 netto and they can manage. Of course, they don't have 35 pairs of shoes, 18 winter coats, a 200 m2 penthouse, 3 mercedes, 4 rolex watches and don't go around the world in 5 star hotels for their vacations but they live.

I don't know where you are from but in western Europe, just for breathing, they give you 1,000 euros or some 1,400/1,800 euros just to clean toilets so of course westerners in Poland have great salaries compared to most Poles and they base their comments upon their very lifestyle. I myself could not (and don't want to) live on 2 or 3,000 ZL (I can't get more in my country, just for breathing ;)).

Howvever, what gets me mad are all those messages: "I'll be paid 17,000 or 28,000 ZL netto per month, is it possible to live on that in Poland?" Not only it is pure stupidity (can't they be informed about Polish reality?) and also indecence.

To summarize, 4 or 5,000 ZL is nothing for westerners but for Poles it is a lot since most of them don't make that much.

I saw a message once on englishforum.ch where some guy was complaining because he couldn't live on 750CHF a day. Turned out that he had a very expensive mortgage in the UK to pay for, private school fees, flights to/from Geneva weekly and had to rent somewhere within 15 minutes of work. Madness.

I am not sure I understand! 750 CHF per day in UK? How much is a CHF? Around as much as a $? You know, some people are used to live like maharajas and don't want to change it. In Poland (for instance), one can "survive" with around 1,000 ZL (like for instance many retired) or live on 1000000000000000000000000000000 ZL if luxury tastes ;)

You mean the retired must "survive" on 1,000 Z£ a day in Poland and this makes their life so harsh?

"lol" ;). Of course per MONTH ;). I would not mind having to "survive" on 1,000 a DAY ;)

Dear friends - I have been offered a job with a monthly gross income of 15000PLN. I have a wife and a 4 year old son. I have been asked to move to Krakow to work in a large international bank. My son will start his schooling soon. Can you please share the following:

a. How much will be my net income monthly? My wife will not work
b. Is this income enough for a family of three?
Your thoughts and views are highly appreciate at this moment.

Hello,

The amount that you were offered will give you around 10k as net salary.

I do not have any children but just to give you some idea:

2-3 bedroom flat around: 2000-2500 PLN (in nice condition not far from city,)
bills: electricity, gas, heating, administration and so on: 500-800
Kitchen: around 1500-2000 ( a rough guess)
If you have car, lets say tanking it full once a month: 200-250 PLN

The part for your kid - school and other things I cannot comment but without costs of your child and your personal expenditures I would say you will spend around 5-7k a month.

And just to add, it always can change up or down according to what standards you want to live

You will not get that much, as others are willing to work for a lot less. Let us know how you got on

Hi All, can someone please respond to the below query

calculla.com/salary_in_poland has joint declaration option.

Is it applicable for Non EU citizens coming to Poland and only husband working and wife being housewife without any income.

Also are there any further deductions for the families with children (we have two)?
terri 1 | 1,440    
5 Dec 2016  #119
For children, if you have 2 children below the age of 18 with you, you will get 500 pln monthly for the second child.
For joint tax declaration - I do not believe that this will save you any money. You will not get any allowances because your wife is not working.
terri 1 | 1,440

I have looked into the husband and wife declarations further. If your annual earnings are 85,528 pln or less and your wife does not work, you may benefit to the tune of 556.38 pln per year.

If your annual earnings are 171,056 pln or above and your wife does not work then you will benefit more, as the total can be split into 2 and you pay 18 per cent tax (same as wife) instead of 32 per cent tax on earnings above 85,528 pln.
