Hi there
are you English?
if so then set up the company as limited in the united Kingdom and trade in Poland
tax can either be paid at source in Poland or if you still have a residenceship in England then tax can be paid there.
I will be in Krakow from 27th November for five days let me know if you would like to meet

To set up an Sp.zo.o company should not cost more than 4000PLN.

I had ridiculous quotes (inc £5000 yes pounds from Warsaw firm)

You don't need lawyer, only notary & certified translator.

I've now done it 3 times setting up 3 businesses. Don't let anyone con you into thinking that it's complicated or difficult.

I went to an accounting firm (ADAC) in Krakow and they informed me it was no problem to open a business in Poland as a Canadian citizen. They wanted 1.800,00 zl to register a small Ltd. com, which was reasonable. The cost I found to be high was the monthly paperwork which was quoted at 800,00. Paperwork is so thorough in Poland that I'm sure they do a lot of work for the money. I'm just used to a much more simple system back home. Many locals recommended I open the business in another Eu country. The paper burden, cost, and taxes are much lower.

I ended up opening a personal bank account, as a business account was hard to get without a Polish business. It's possible, but the paperwork and documents required was extensive.

Hello All,
Is it possible to be a tourist and open a business here in Poland?
I am an Engineer, in order to work in Poland, I need a work permit, but a lot of companies which were willing to hire me didn't want to go through the process of applying for a permit.

The big companies which do this are currently not hiring.
Please advice.

Thread attached on merging:
Exactly what do I need to even START setting up a business in Poland?

I've been living in Poland for a little over 3 years. I'm British, and now I'm trying to set up a business.

Now I know what type of business I want to set up, and the process involved, but when I went to the Urzad Miasta they told me I needed to be registered at an address.

I should say here that since I've been in Poland I have not registered myself in any way. I did work for a school here and they paid my tax against my passport number (or at least they said they did). So, I have no NIP, no PESEL, no Meldunek, no nothing!

So, I went to the office with my girlfriend - with whom I live - to get registered at my address. The woman asked how ling I'd been here, we told the truth, and she said 'you're here illegally, and I can't register you'.

So my basic questions at this point are:

1) What should I do to get myself registered at my address? Should I just go there again and lie, saying I got off the plane yesterday.

2) What documents do I need for myself to start the process of registering a company?

Any advice will be very warmly received!!

1) What should I do to get myself registered at my address? Should I just go there again and lie, saying I got off the plane yesterday.

All you need to do is go to the Urzad Miasta with the owners of the property and your passport. It's quite painless - in theory. The reality is that many owners of flats won't register you for whatever reason - some out of fear that they won't be able to remove you, some because they don't want anyone to find out that they're renting the flat out. If you own it, then it should be much easier.

When you go there, simply tell them that you arrived a few days ago. There's absolutely no way of checking (last four entries into the Schengen zone, I've simply had a quick look at the passport, no scans/etc) when you actually entered Poland for them - so don't worry about that.

I would talk to the tax office about you having paid taxes. It's quite likely that they didn't pay taxes for you at all - although it is possible that they did, it would seem quite likely that they were simply pocketing the 19% or whatever for themselves.

Surely the experience / skills / resources would determine the type of business that you set up. Also, I get the impression that you are not currently in Poland - have you even got the paperwork / visas etc. that you would need?
