British National working in Poland -- is work visa or other legal formalities required?

I am British national, with a valid British Passport and i am about to receive an internal job offer in my company to work in Poland. I currently work in INDIA on a valid visa.

So as i have received the internal job offer from Poland, and before accepting it, i wanted to confirm a few things:

1) Do i need a visa to work in Poland as a British National?
2) If no, are there any other legal formalities that i need to go through to work in Poland?

Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks in advance.

Penpal - your employer really should sort this out for you. Much more efficient then asking a few polish trolls on the internets.

1. Both the UK and Poland are in the EU so you don't need a visa to move or work between these countries (assuming you have a legal British passport).

2. The only thing that comes to mind is taxation - you probably need to decide where to pay taxes (in the UK or in Poland). Consult with your accountant to determine what would work better for you (and don't worry, you won't be double-taxed in both countries; just see what would make better sense, eg. if you're going to work as a contractor vs. regular employee and for how long).

Hang on. What passport do you hold? Are you a British Citizen, or a British National (Overseas) citizen?

@Nathans: we don't "choose" where to pay tax ;). If working in a country 6 months + 1 day, we pay tax to this country.

The asker is a British national - there may be a visa/work permit requirement.
If you work for a Polish employer in Poland, then you pay Polish tax/insurance etc. in Poland.
