To do so, you should apply to the Foundation via an application form, by phone or email. The first step in undertaking cooperation is to familiarize yourself with the information materials, Cooperation Agreement and Regulations. If the terms and conditions are accepted, the above-mentioned agreement is signed during a meeting at the company’s headquarters or by sending a signed scan of the agreement (remote mode).
No, the Foundation supports the activities of all people, regardless of their status (age, education, etc.). The only factor that may prevent cooperation is the sector being pursued. Excluded are, for example, the catering, construction and medical (including cosmetology) sectors.
The agreement is signed for an indefinite period with 1 month’s notice. The minimum period of cooperation is 2 months.
If you are a student and under the age of 26, then no matter what kind of venture you are running you do not pay Social Insurance Contribution (ZUS) or income tax (PIT). If you do not meet these requirements, and you create some works (results) as part of your venture, then top-down you are exempt from paying ZUS, because we pay out your profit on the basis of a specified task contract.
In the case of commercial industries (e-commerce, including dropshipping), your salary is paid on the basis of a contract of mandate, which, in the absence of student status up to the age of 26 or no other title to social security (employment contract or contract of mandate for a minimum of PLN 3010 gross), you have the obligation to pay ZUS and PIT on each contract of mandate, which costs 44%.
Yes. It will be the same form of cooperation as if you had your own company with the difference that the Foundation will be a party to the agreement, if one is required.
Invoices show not your venture’s but the Foundation’s registration information as the vendor. Contracts with your contractor are signed by the Foundation after prior analysis of their content by our lawyers.
The formal relationship you have with the Foundation is a civil law contract, under which you cash the profit generated within your company. You are, therefore, a person employed by the Foundation. It is possible to run a company under the Foundation with a partner, but the Foundation does not regulate mutual obligations between them.
When operating in the Foundation, you pay VAT (unless you enjoy a subjective exemption from VAT, such as language teaching or financial intermediation). In addition, you pay PIT (6% or 9.6% income tax, depending on the type of activity) and possibly ZUS if you operate in the sector that does not fall under a contract for a specified task, such as commercial (contract of mandate). If you are under 26 years old, you do not pay PIT.
