Chaos over the calculation of employees’ salaries – another trap of the Polish Order

Companies have had little time to prepare for the use of Polish Order provisions, some of which are unclear and raise doubts. The situation was further complicated by the new regulation of the Minister of Finance on the collection of advances for income tax.

On 7 January, a regulation of the Minister of Finance on the collection of advances for income tax was published in the Journal of Laws. It introduced even more confusion regarding the calculation of employees’ salaries for January. It is a response to the differences signalled by teachers and representatives of the uniformed services regarding salaries calculated according to the former and the new rules.

“When calculating salaries for January for thousands of our clients’ employees, we are unable to take into account the changes resulting from the regulation that was introduced at such a short notice. This requires not only the proper adaptation of IT systems, but also the development of practical guidelines for our team. Potential errors could put our clients at risk, and we cannot accept that. For this reason, we will calculate salaries in accordance with the Act” – says Magdalena Aleksandrowicz in a statement for the PulsHR portal.
