It helps you in 2 ways: lowers your base to calculate income tax and social insurances (ZUS) to pay (every week), and provides an extra cashback bonus of up to almost 10% on top of that.
Every cost you upload reduces your income from the accounting perspective (for example: 1000 zł of income - 100 zł of cost = 900 zł tax base). And because your income tax and ZUS are counted based on your tax base, they will both get lower with every cost. The total amount of costs you added is visible on your every settlement, under the name of “Costs refund”.
Every cost receipt or invoice contains a VAT tax. Once per month, we’ll sum half of the total VAT you paid on all your invoices from the previous month and add this amount on your 1st settlement every calendar month, under the name of “Cashback bonus” (for example: you paid a total of 100 zł VAT in May -> we’ll add 50 zł cashback bonus on your 1st settlement in June).
💰💰💰 To simplify the above: Courier 2 paid 123 zł total for fuel and got 56,27 zł out of it back into the pocket thanks to lower tax base and VAT refund. It's 46% discount - meaning you paid almost 2x less for fuel!
❗ Please mind that how much refund you actually get will depend on your age, student status, VAT rate of your purchase and if Appjobs is your only employer. Read more here.
