In the previous article from a series dedicated to employing foreigners in Poland. we discussed hiring third-country nationals. We have explained that this involves a range of obligations both for the employer and the employee, and any failure to meet these obligations results in certain penalties. Today we are going to analyse whether hiring a foreigner who is a citizen of the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland (hereinafter referred to as an EU citizen) is indeed a less complicated procedure. Does the employer face penalties if he or she fails to observe the procedures related to a foreigner’s stay on the territory of Poland?

Hence, what needs to be focused on in order to avoid these errors, close the financial year properly and save yourself the stress involved with an auditor’s visit? I encourage you to read my article as I go on to discuss selected aspects.

In this and in the next post, I am going to help you all realise and appreciate how immense the impact of managerial decisions is on the quality of company’s reporting. I would like to point out that if the company’s management board (and supervisory bodies) are not aware of the essence of accounting, do not understand the necessity of preparing financial statements and do not recognise the goal behind internal and external audit, any financial data processed by financial and accounting services are subject to material error, or at least fail to represent all economic events fairly and clearly.

On 13 July 2018, the Act of 1 March 2018 on Countering Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Journal of Laws of 2018, item. 723, hereinafter referred to as “the Act”) entered into force in Poland. The goal behind this regulation was the complete and correct transposition of Directive (EU) 2015/849 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 May 2015 on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purposes of money laundering or terrorist financing. However, certain provisions of the Act will enter into force only after 18 months after the date of its announcement, i.e. 13 October 2019, and will materially affect the operation of many businesses.

We have already written a lot, both here and in national journals, about the importance of audit services, their meaning for businesses, the cooperation of management boards or supervisory bodies with auditors, and the qualities of a good auditor. Now it is time to say something about how this auditor (a statutory auditor or an audit firm) should be chosen.
