The main goal of the project was to build a network of Polish and foreign institutions, which would propose effective policy solutions to tackle unregistered employment in Poland. The idea was also to develop an innovative tool for assessing the PIT gap in Poland, as well as a model for estimating the financial effects of various fiscal solutions on public finance. SzaWER project also aims to raise awareness of workers and employers about disadvantages of unregistered labour, so as to reduce their propensity towards noncompliant behaviour.
