Thank you Jonni, it's really appreciated :)
Yes, It's me and my website, I'm based in Poznan.
If he doesn't need the protection of limited liability, then a one person company is the way forward for sure. As an EU citizen, it's absolutely painless to set up - there's certainly no need to engage the services of a lawyer to do so. The real problem is in dealing with ZUS as an employer - but a good accountant can handle this for you.
As for warehouse facilities - at the minute, Poznan has way, way too much oversupply of them - you see constant advertising for units to rent, so it shouldn't be a problem finding a suitably cheap warehouse facility.
· How easy is it to find reliable warehouse staff and roughly how much should I pay them?
Not difficult - Poznan has a decent workforce and low unemployment, so you will have to pay quite a bit to attract good workers. But then again, people are perceiving a crisis here and that may play into your hands in terms of salary.
· Will most low paid workers have access to a car or do I have to rent a warehouse close to public transport?
Given the traffic situation in Poznan is getting rapidly worse, I'd recommend something near public transport. Howeve, most warehouses tend to be located near public transport anyway - so I wouldn't worry in this respect.
· Dose Poznan have all the services that ill need to set up the company or will I have to drive to Warsaw to deal with the government?
You can do everything here :)
However - beware. Poland might not be better for you. We're happy to consult with you on this sort of thing - it does depend on your circumstances.
