The success of a victim’s claim pursuit in penal proceedings requires the support of an experienced and active lawyer who is able to present clearly their Client’s position, often complex business context of a crime and establish cooperation with the investigators, followed by a reliable representation of the victim before a court as an auxiliary or a private prosecution.

FAQ – If you have got a Start-up or you are at the beginning of your business journey Here are some answers to make your decisions easier

Can you establish a partnership or a company remotely?

Yes, it is possible. However, it requires that relevant documents are signed before a notary public or in another manner appropriate for a particular country, followed by an apostille or legalisation. Such documents, with their sworn translation, may constitute basis for a partnership or company registration in Poland.

Who may be on the board of a limited liability company?

Fundamental conditions to hold a function on a limited liability company board are not excessive. A member of the board may be a person who has attained the age of 18 and has a full active legal capacity (has not been incapacitated). Furthermore, a member of the board may not be finally sentenced for a crime, yet, this condition refers solely to crimes against property, business transactions, document credibility, information protection, cash and securities trading.

Can you open a bank account via a representative?

Every company is obliged to hold a bank account at a Polish bank. Since banks make the process of a bank account set-up via a law firm significantly more difficult, it is recommended that the management board opens a bank account once a business is formed.

Does setting up a company make foreign nationals eligible to stay in Poland?

Ownership of a limited liability company shares or sitting on the management board does not involve a direct right to remain on the Polish territory. A non-EU foreign national will still be obliged to apply for a visa or a residence permit. Nevertheless, a function on a company board may constitute sole grounds of an application to stay on the Polish territory.

Can a foreign national become a sole trader in Poland?

A European Union/European Economic Area foreign national may establish and conduct business operations in Poland just like Polish citizens. A foreign national who is not a Member State citizen may undertake and conduct sole trading operations on the territory of Poland under the principles mandatory for Polish citizens, if they hold a permanent or temporary residence permit through a lasting marriage to a Polish citizen. Other foreign nationals have a right to operate on the Polish territory solely as a partnership or a company.

How long does it take to register a company in Poland?

The procedure of a company registration at a registry court takes about one month from the day of a company agreement conclusion before a notary public. Persons present in Poland may set a company up online, which accelerates the registration procedure significantly.

What is the taxation for a limited liability company?

A limited liability company’s income is subject to a corporate income tax - CIT. Partners do not assume liability for tax arrears provided that they do not sit on the board at the same time.

What is the minimum share capital and what contribution may be made to cover the shares in the share capital of a limited liabi
