From 1 January 2021 the regulation setting out new template forms of notification of concluded contracts for specific tasks shall come into force. This regulation was introduced as a result of amendments to the Act on the social insurance system imposed by the Anti-Crisis Shield 1.0. As a result of these changes, there arises a new obligation for the contribution payer to notify the Social Insurance Institution (ZUS) about contracts for specific tasks by sending the special notification form (RUD).
The main purpose of the amendments to the provisions of the Act on the social insurance system is to enable ZUS to verify the existence of the social security obligation of persons performing contracts called contracts for specific tasks. Moreover, as can be read in the Regulatory Impact Assessment attached to the draft regulation, the number of payers to whom the draft regulations refer amounts to 2,091,930. However, as the Ministry emphasises, the number of payers who will be obliged to notify contracts for specific tasks is unknown, as until now there has been no register of such contracts.
The new obligation will apply to a person who is not in an employment relationship, i.e. who is not employed on the basis of an employment contract, appointment, election, nomination or cooperative employment contract and does not provide work under a contract for specific tasks for the employer with whom he or she is bound by a contract of employment.
Information on concluded contracts for specific tasks will be stored by ZUS on the account of the contribution payer´s account, and according to the draft of the RUD form, the legislator will require the following data:
According to the regulations, the notification shall be made within 7 days from the date of concluding a specific task contract.
