I would like to add to Polmed's comments for the benefit of our South African friend
it is far cheaper to establish a business here and the living conditions are great .
Fiscal system is strict so it is highly unprobable that you can meet here similar conditions like many european countries have faced recently .
again, getting a bank loan is very difficult so if you need money for your new business forget it. it is a double edged sword
I have always maintained that Poland is great, but.....
and there are reasons why it is not so great
but the good poiints outweigh the bad points
now someone will probably come on here now and tell me that he knows a man in the pub who can set up a Sp zoo for the price of a beer
but when I have set up Sp zoo we always used an accountant and we paid very good money to do it
were we ripped off, possibly? but better that than get in trouble later
you are entitled to your opinion
but it means nothing to me as it is all second hand
whenever someone posts on here wanting advice on living in Poland I always help
Comical Ali was trying to say 'mindlessly come to Poland, it is just great and take your family with you'
I rather favoured a more reasoned approach
and as for your granny still being alive, I am delighted for you
send her my regards
