Good to know

  • The service provider is obliged to inform the Social Insurance Institution of his intention to provide a cross-border service before its commencement and, in urgent cases, after it has been completed (in accordance with Article 31(2) point 4 of the Act of 22 December 2015 on the principles governing the recognition of professional qualifications acquired in Member States of the European Union).  In practice, this operation is to obtain by the service provider from insurance institution in his country, as due to his home address, a certificate (on A1 form) on being subject to social insurance.  Obtained certificate has to be presented, if necessary, to the worker of ZUS, e.g. while carrying out the checks.
  • Providers of services in the EU internal market are obliged to pay social security contributions in the Member State where they conduct “an important economic activity". The provider is therefore not obliged to register their business under the Polish social security system.
