Corporate services

The idea to start a business in Poland may seem simple, yet setting up a company is indeed a complex procedure. We offer you comprehensive services in terms of establishing companies and branches in Poland, including helping you choose the right form of business activity, draw up the company deed and other registration documents, and register the company with the National Court Register and the tax office, as well as assist you in the process of reporting the beneficial owner to the Central Register of Beneficial Owners.

For persons/businesses willing to immediately start operations, we have prepared an offer of fully registered companies ready for sale – the so-called shelf companies. Outside the registration procedure, we also offer other services enabling foreign entrepreneurs to smoothly conduct their business activity, in compliance with all binding legal regulations, such as corporate governance, accounting, tax and legal assistance. We also support businesses in their daily administrative burdens offering a wide range of corporate secretarial services.

If you decide to wind off a company/branch, we can offer you professional support throughout the course of the liquidation proceedings held before the registry court.

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.
