Poland Company Formations

Poland Company Incorporation

The most common form of corporate structure for companies in Poland is the Limited Liability Company (Spólka z o.o.). We guide you throughout every step of the company formation process in Poland and incorporate your Polish Spólka z o.o company with the National Court Register.

Incorporating your Spólka z.o.o.

We prepare the deed of establishment for your Company and the Company's Articles of Association in the form of a notarial deed. The notarial deed we prepare contains the following:

  • Your company name
  • Activity
  • Share Capital - the minimum issued capital is 5,000 PLN (€1200)
  • Number and value of shares held by the shareholders

The Articles of Association for your limited liability company are signed and notarised. The application to register your company with the State Court Register and Statistical Office is then completed, we then obtain your REGON number. This number is unique to your company; it identifies the company's business sector, as well as various other details. The company registration is then officially announced in the Monitor Sadowy i Gospodarczy.

We can offer assistance with opening a bank account for your company in Poland. Within a week of your company starting economic activity in Poland it must be registered with the Social Security Institute and the local tax office.

Share Capital

The minimum share capital of a Polish limited liability company is PLN 5000 (€1200). and the lowest permitted value of a single share is PLN 50 (€12). Shares in a limited liability company are rights, not securities, which means that share certificates are not issued.

The Regon number is obtained prior to registration of your Company at the National Court Register, and within 14 days of the notarial deed.

Register for VAT

A Polish company is required to register for the purposes of VAT within 20 days of starting its business activity. We can assist in applying for VAT registration once the company is incorporated.

Poland Branch Office

The Polish commercial code allows for the establishment of branch offices in Poland of foreign companies. The branch office is registered in the Polish commercial register and is issued with a Polish KRS number.

The branch office can carry out all the activities that may be carried out by the parent company. The branch operates in Poland under the name of the parent company with the addition 'Oddzial w Polsce'.

The individual is then entered into the court register, similar to a Director in a Polish limited liability company.

The branch office is required to:

  • Maintain accounting records in the same manner as a limited liability company.
  • At the end of the financial year the financial statements of the branch office are approved by the management board of the parent company and filed with the Polish registration court and tax office.
