The estimated value of the clothing and footwear industries in Poland in 2014 amounted to 7.3 billion euro[1] and was higher in relation to the previous year by 5.6%. The clothing segment recognized an increase by 5.9% in relation to 4.5% of the growth of the footwear industry. It is worth noticing that in the stretch of the last four years, the entire branch was growing steadily at 4%, with the exception of 2012, where a slight decrease was noticed (- 1.6% in the footwear industry compared to 0.5% in the clothing segment). In 2014, most of the branch companies expanded their sales network, which in connection with a growing demand translated into the increase in revenues.

The completeness of company registration procedure is of material importance for entrepreneurs wishing to start up their business in Poland. From 1 December 2014, new regulations that are supposed to simplify the registration process of the entity into the tax office and the Statistical Office, came into force. Indeed, from then on, once the company is entered into the register of entrepreneurs of the National Court Register,  it is also entered into the register of taxpayers (receives a NIP) and, at the same time, granted the National Business Registry Number (Polish REGON). Entrepreneurs can finally start operating.

Choosing the right business form is of uttermost importance to every entrepreneur. Therefore, before you make the decision it is advisable to learn about all the resulting consequences. If you happen to be a Polish entrepreneur, the task seems rather simple (at least in theory): you browse the Internet (thousands of posts, but which ones are credible?), check on friends and their experiences, and finally there’s a phone call to the Companies House to check out the mundane side of starting a business (what forms need to be submitted, where to pay your fees and how much?).
