Working for a UK company - National Insurance and income tax in Poland (being resident here)

Help!!
Just found out (guess I didn't research thoroughly) that as I am working for a UK company, even though I'm resident in Poland, I still need to pay NI contributions in UK. This is a rather large expense I hadn't counted on.

HMRC tell me that I an entitled to an A1 certificate, with informs Polish authorities that I pay National Insurance in UK and, therefore, do not pay it in Poland. However, I did not think NI existed here. Please can someone help me understand how the NI & Income Tax works here?

I had originally thought that income tax works like:

0% up to zl 3,091 - plus
18% up to zl 85,828 - plus
32% over 185,844.06

Does this include an element of National Insurance (which I'm hoping I will not need to pay)?

I'm getting a bit worried that I might have seriously underestimated my Finances. :-(

Thanks.

Those tax bands exclude national insurance. The 32 percent band starts at 85k.

No idea about your other question - ask at your local Zus office and take a Pole with you to translate

It does. It's called ZUS. I pay about a thousand zloty per month.

Why not set yourself up as self-employed? That way you pay 19% flat tax (less expenses), although you also need to add VAT to your invoices.
