You have managed to register your business activity - congratulations.

Now you have seven days to complete the formalities in the Social Insurance Institution ZUS.

Health insurance

Registration of business activity in the Central Register and Information on Business CEIDG requires from you payment of health insurance contributions for yourself and most likely also for social insurance.

If you are simultaneously conducting a sole tradership and a civil law partnership, you must pay a double contribution for health insurance. If you are a partner in numerous civil law partnerships, you must pay health insurance contributions due to each of those partnerships.

If your company operates in the form of a single-member limited liability company, you have the same obligations as an entrepreneur registered in CEIDG.

If you have business activity registered in CEIDG or a single member limited liability company and do not employ workers, check out how to register with the Social Insurance Institution as a person insured and what are the rules for payment of contributions.

Reduced social security contributions

As a beginning entrepreneur entered in the CEIDG, you are entitled to take advantage of the so-called "small ZUS" - reduced social security contributions for the first two years after registration of activity.

If you do not know whether you are able to take advantage of the so-called "small ZUS", we will help you. Please refer to additional information. 

Insured in another EU Member State

If you have business activity registered in another EU Member State where you are subject to social security, most probably you do not have to pay contributions to ZUS.

If you do not know, whether as a foreign entrepreneur you are subject to insurance in ZUS, we can help you. Refer to the article on that topic. 

Insured in the Agricultural Social Insurance Fund KRUS

If you are a farmer or a member of his family insured in KRUS, registration of business activity or assistance to an entrepreneur (as a family member) does not mean automatic transfer to ZUS.

If you do not know what conditions you have to meet to remain in KRUS, we can help you.  Please refer to additional information.

Hiring employees - registration with ZUS

If you are hiring employees, you must register them for insurance within seven days.

The term for payment of contributions

Depending on whether or not you hire employees, contributions are paid at different times.

If you do not know what are the terms when contributions are to be paid and in what amounts, we can help you. Please refer to additional information.
