Zero PIT for young freelancers? THERE IS A WAY! Simply issue invoices through Bizky. As of August 2019, a law introducing the so-called zero PIT for individuals up to the age of 26 came into force. Thanks to this, young people do not have to pay income tax on their earnings. Importantly, the status of a student or pupil does not matter here, the tax relief also applies to people who are not in education. Unfortunately, not all forms of earning are covered by this relief. It cannot be used when settling on the basis of a work contract, being on an apprenticeship or running a business. The PIT exemption only applies to employment contracts and contracts of mandate.
Freelance 0% without opening a business in Poland
The majority of freelancers in Poland settle their contracts by issuing invoices, which means they have to establish a business. This means that in order to be independent in the job market, we are forced to bear high earning costs, as running a business entails paying high social security contributions, income tax and accounting costs.
Moreover, the tax exemption for individuals up to 26 years old does not apply to young entrepreneurs. That’s why so many young people use Bizky. They can invoice multiple clients and benefit from the PIT0 exemption, while avoiding formalities and paperwork, and earning more.
