Exclusion of employees' per diem for foreign business trips from earnings for social insurance and health insurance contribution purposes
On 28 October 2015, a judgment of the Polish Constitutional Tribunal (file ref. no. SK 9/14) was announced, which is favourable for both Polish employers and for the insured taking foreign business trips.

The Constitutional Tribunal (further: “Tribunal”) found § 2 section 1 point 16 of the Minister of Labour and Social Policy Regulation of 18 December 1998 on detailed principles of establishing earnings for pension and disability contribution purposes (further: “Contribution Regulation”) to contravene the Polish Constitution - in so far as it refers to individuals employed abroad with a Polish employer, who obtain income (within the meaning of PIT regulations) lower than the average salary in national economy. Because of the content of the challenged regulation, for such individuals the earnings for insurance contribution purposes were artificially overstated. The Tribunal stated that the said provision in the scope indicated above would become ineffective after 12 months pass from the judgment being announced in the Polish Journal of Laws (further: “Journal of Laws”). The judgment has not yet been published in the Journal of Laws.

OŻÓG Tax Finance Law offers comprehensive support in your implementation of solutions regarding the above mentioned issue.
