In Ukraine – from PLN 10,600 to PLN 18,500 gross under an employment contract and from PLN 13,800 to PLN 20,500 net under a B2B contract.

Fullstack specialists in Ukraine earn from PLN 10,600 to PLN 18,500 gross under an employment contract, and from PLN 11,000 to PLN 17,000 gross in Poland. At the same time, under a B2B contract, such specialists receive from PLN 16,100 to PLN 22,400 net in Ukraine and from PLN 15,000 to PLN 21,500 net + VAT in Poland.

Different levels of salaries in the case of work under a B2B contract are related to the nuances of taxation. In Poland, private entrepreneurs pay 23% VAT, which is also covered by the employer.
