Payments and rewards to employees are regarded as object of taxation for the uniform social tax if the taxpayer organisation does not include such payments in expenses reducing the taxable base for the profit tax from organisations.

Determination of the taxable base for the profit tax does not include expenses in the form of material aid paid out to employees, therefore, payments in the form of material aid made in the framework of the collective contract are not recognised as object of taxation for the uniform social tax.
