Many Polish people working in Germany benefit from Kindergeld. A much less popular allowance is Elterngeld. Therefore, we will try to explain what this benefit is, how to obtain it, how long and in what amount it is paid, as well as whether it can be paid for children born in Poland.
A foreigner who would like to work legally in Poland should have a work permit and a residence one. These are two different documents. However, a special type of temporary residence authorisation exists – temporary residence and work permit, also known as a uniform permit.

The employer may reduce the tax base for the remuneration of the posted worker by 30% of the value of the daily allowances.

In the Netherlands, as in other EU countries, there is an obligation to notify the posting of employees.

Persons going to work in a country other than the one where they have tax residence are afraid that income earned abroad will be taxed twice, i.e. in the country of residence and in the State in which the work is carried out.

The provisions of double taxation conventions and the provisions of relevant acts determine the method which is applicable in a given case.
Very often, people going to work in one of the EU or EFTA countries are accompanied by the fear that they won’t be able to benefit from medical assistance during their trip.

On 23 May 2023, a draft law on the posting of drivers in road transport was adopted by the Council of Ministers. This project aims to adapt the Polish provisions related to the secondment of drivers to EU solutions included in the so-called Mobility Package. The proposed changes in Polish legal regulations cover both carriers based in Poland and drivers sent abroad by them, as well as transport companies from other countries, directing their employees to carry out road transport operations in the territory of the Republic of Poland.
Groups of companies are created by enterprises with capital ties. These links are very strong. Therefore, it’s very common to post workers between enterprises belonging to the same group. If the secondment takes place to an entity belonging to a group of entrepreneurs and located in another Member State, it must fulfil the requirements determined in EU law.
