According to the projected ordinance of the Polish Minister of Family and Social Policy amending the ordinance on the differentiation of the interest rate for social insurance contributions for accidents at work and occupational diseases depending on occupational hazards and their consequences, as of April 1, 2021, the risk and rate categories and the amount of accident insurance contributions for many activity groups will get changed.
For companies from many industries this will mean a change in the amount of the accident insurance contributions paid for their employees.
Invariably, for companies employing up to 9 persons, the percentage rate of the accident insurance contribution will still be 1.67%.
Other companies will have the rate determined based on the new table in Annex 2 to the regulation. Depending on the situation, the rate is set by ZUS or the company itself.
