Explore this comprehensive guide from Fionza Consultants to navigate the incorporation process and secure a banking account in Poland effectively. By systematically following the six steps outlined below, you can anticipate commencing business activities with your Poland company within a short span of 7 weeks.
Step 1: Choosing a Suitable Company Structure
Tailored to your business goals, Fionza Consultants’ dedicated consultants recommend the most fitting company structure, considering optimal paid-up share capital, requirements, and legislation.
Step 2: Reservation of Company Name
Fionza Consultants takes care of reserving your preferred company name with the National Court Register.
Step 3: Preparation of Supporting Documents to Register Company in Poland
Directors and shareholders typically need to provide basic KYC documents. Fionza Consultants assists with internal due diligence checks, including certified passport copies, proof of address, bank reference letters, and CVs. Although a Polish resident director isn’t mandatory, Fionza can provide a nominee director for enhanced privacy. Additionally, we aid in securing a registered local office address and draft essential documents like Articles of Association, business plans, and incorporation documents.
Step 4: Filing to Register Company in Poland
Fionza Consultants initiates the registration process with the National Court Register. Upon approval, we promptly courier the Certificate of Incorporation, Memorandum and Articles of Association, and other necessary documents to your chosen address. Translations into English are provided for your convenience.
Step 5: Corporate Bank Account Opening
Post-company formation, Fionza Consultants facilitates the opening of a corporate account with reputable banks in Poland and Europe. Leveraging established partnerships, we present your business to relationship managers and compliance teams. Typically taking four weeks, our team negotiates on your behalf for virtual meetings, if needed, ensuring a smooth account opening process.
Step 6: Financial Reporting and Taxation Obligations
Following company setup, Fionza Consultants continues to support your business with accounting and tax services. This includes obtaining a unique Tax Identification Number (NIP) for your company, registering for VAT if necessary, and ensuring compliance with the Social Insurance Institution (ZUS). Our dedicated consultants handle financial statements, corporate tax returns, and bookkeeping. We clarify any doubts regarding obligations and guide you through tax-related considerations, with audits necessary only under specific thresholds.
