The employment of workers and co-workers

If you decide to hire an employee or to conclude a civil law contract with a co-worker, you must be aware of the fundamental differences between the employment relationship and cooperation on the basis of a civil-law contract ( contract of mandate or for specific work)

Agreements with entrepreneurs

You must also distinguish between such agreements and establishing cooperation with another entrepreneur (e.g. carrying out self-employment), who will issue an invoice for a service rendered.

This is one of the main difference.  In the case of relations with a person not engaged in an economic activity it will be you who  will pay income tax and contributions to ZUS (apart from contract for specific work).

In the case of relations with another entrepreneur, you will receive an invoice for a service rendered.  After its payment you do not have any additional obligations with regard to administrative authorities.
