Employee relocation in practice: tax aspects and more (part 2). Taxation of Polish resident’s income earned abroad

We discussed tax residency in the first article on employee relocation. Now it is time to have a look at another important aspect: the method of taxation of paid work according to international agreements. These agreements are aimed at preventing double taxation of the same income, i.e. ensuring, among others, that the income from work performed abroad will not be taxed in two countries (i.e. in the source country and the country of residence).

Employing foreigners in Poland (part 3). Work permits

20 December 2019
As we already know, any foreigner who is a citizen of the European Union and wishes to work on the territory of Poland does not need a work permit. We discussed this in more detail in our last article from a series on employing foreigners in Poland. However, employing third-country nationals is a more complex procedure, as there are certain permits that must be obtained and the employer must get involved in the process. If the employer fails to meet these obligations, he or she may face quite severe penalties.
