INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECTS: NEW RESIDENT BUT I DON T WORK IN POLAND

DEAR ALL,

NICE TO KNOW ABOUT THIS FORUM, I AM NEW COMER, A COLLEAGUE TOLD ME ABOUT IT AND IMMEDIATELY I LOGED IN TO REGISTER.

I HAVE COUPLE OF QUESTIONS REGARDING BUSINESS: I AM WORKING ON COUPLE OF INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECTS (MOSTLY TENDER AND COMPETITIONS) FOR SOME INVESTORS ABROAD. NOW, AFTER MOVING TO POLAND FROM JAPAN (I LIVED THERE FOR TEN YEARS) AND RECEIVING THE KARTA POBYTU SINCE NOV 2011 (MARRIED TO POLISH), I AM LIVING HERE, BUT NOT EMPLOYED YET OR NOT REGISTERED AS SELF EMPLOYED NEITHER.

RECENTLY I RENTED ANOTHER SMALL FLAT AS HOME AND I AM USING IT AS SMALL STUDIO TO SEPERATE LIFE FROM WORK, BUT I DON T HAVE ANY COMPANY OR ONE PERSON COMPANY REGISTRATION YET.

MY WORKS IS PURE INVESTMENT AS I DON'T GENERATE INCOME UNLESS I SELL THE DESIGN I DO: THIS MEANS THAT I CHECK COMPETITIONS ONLINE, WORK, DESIGN, PAY TO OUTSOURCE WORK - WHEN NEEDED, BUT SOMETIMES I DON 'T GET INCOME FOR THAT, AS MY WORK IS PART OF COMPETITIONS WITH OTHER DESIGNERS FOR SAME INVESTORS. I DON T HAVE CLIENTS YET HERE IN POLAND, SO MY WORK IS NOT THE TYPE OF GETTING COMISSIONS, SIGNING CONTRACTS, THEN WORKING AND GETTING PAID....I GUESS I WILL NEED TIME FOR THAT.

YOU MIGHT ASK ME : HOW I WILL SURVIVE IF I JUST PAY TO DEVELOP WORK FOR COMPETITIONS BUT I DON T GET PAID? WELL, IT IS NOT EASY, BUT I GIVE MYSELF ALWAYS A YEAR OF GAP MAXIMUM, AND IF I DON T GET ANYTHING SOLD/WON, THEN I JUST GET A JOB PART TIME TO SUSTAIN, IN ANY FIELD (DONE THAT B4). IN ADDITION, I SAVED SOME MONEY IN THE LAST 5 YEARS AND I AM ABLE TO DO SOME PERSONAL INVESTMENTS WITHOUT BEING PAID, HOPING TO GROW MY WORK.

MY QUESTION: THIS KIND OF WORK/COMPETITIONS THAT I AM DOING AT MY STUDIO HAS TO BE REGISTERED? DO I HAVE TO PAY ANY TAX IF I DON T GET A COMISSION FROM THESE WORKS? AND IN CASE I BRING SOMEONE TO ASSIST ME AS PART TIMER AND I PAY HIM POCKET MONEY FROM MY SAVINGS, WILL THAT BE OK? WILL I BE QUESTIONED FOR ANYTHING?

I READ AB ONE PERSON COMPANY, BUT I AM HESITANT TO DO THAT NOW AS I DON T HAVE YET CONCRETE COMISSIONS; BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I DON'T WANT TO BE AN OFFSIDER AND DO THINGS NOT LEGALLY.

I GUESS THERE ARE MANY CASES LIKE MINE, AND I HOPE TO READ YOUR FEEDBACK GUYS AND GIRLS,

TX A LOT FOR ANY FEED.

DO I HAVE TO PAY ANY TAX IF I DON T GET A COMISSION FROM THESE WORKS?

Yes: if you have a one-person company, you must pay ZUS every month (250zl per month for the first two years and then 900zl per month after that) regardless of whether you earn any income at all.
