Foreign entrepreneurs who want to establish a business activity in Poland very often consider which form of business activity they should adopt. They can choose between establishing a branch of their company or starting a separate entity (e.g. a new limited liability company). In this article, we will focus on the first of the abovementioned solutions and explain how to establish a foreign company’s branch in Poland.
A foreign company’s branch in Poland – legal status
First of all, it should be emphasized that a foreign company’s branch does not have a legal personality. It does constitute a separate organizational unit but it is still only a part of the foreign entrepreneurship. This means that foreign entrepreneur is responsible for the undertakings of the branch company. Essentially, the branch also does not have the capacity to be a party in court proceedings. Consequently, it is the foreign entrepreneur who will constitute a party (either plaintiff or defendant) in the event of a possible court trial. It does not apply, however, to cases concerning employees’ issues. In the event of litigation between a foreign company’s branch and its employee (either former or present one), the branch company will always constitute a representative party to the proceedings.
How to establish a branch of a foreign company in Poland?
In Poland, those entrepreneurs who originate from the European Union may establish a branch of their business practically without restrictions. Entrepreneurs originating from countries not belonging to the EU may establish a branch in Poland on the basis of reciprocity. This means that the possibility to establish a branch company depends on whether the international agreements ensure Polish entrepreneurs similar rights. For example, establishing a branch of an American company on the territory of the Republic of Poland is possible based on the ratified international agreement – the Treaty between the United States of America and the Republic of Poland Concerning Business and Economic Relations, signed on the 21st of March 1990.
Moreover, establishing a company’s branch in Poland also requires:
- making an appropriate decision by a foreign entrepreneur (e.g. the resolution of an appropriate body of a company, such as management or board of directors);
- the application for the branch’s entry into the Polish National Court Register [Polish: KRS];
- if a foreign entrepreneur operates on the basis of the partnership agreement, deed of foundation, contract, statute and/or entry into the National Commercial Register, a certified copy of such documents together with their certified translation into Polish should be submitted along with the application for entry of the branch into the Polish register.
Obviously, a foreign company’s branch should also have a legal title for its registered office in Poland (e.g. rent agreement). There are no legal obstacles to use a virtual office.
It should be noted that a foreign entrepreneur may start his business activity within the company’s branch in Poland only after obtaining an entry into the Polish National Court Register [Polish: KRS].
An entrepreneur who establishes a foreign company’s branch in Poland is obliged to assign a person who will be authorized to represent the foreign entrepreneur (a branch representative). The branch representative shall act on behalf of and for the entrepreneur in relation to the branch company’s activities.
There are no particular requirements regarding the person indicated as a branch representative. What is important, such a person does not need to be a Polish citizen or an employee of the company’s branch. There is no requirement for a branch representative to speak Polish. More than one branch representative may be assigned.
The representative may be dismissed by a foreign entrepreneur at any time. Both assigning and dismissing a branch representative shall be confirmed in writing.
A foreign company’s branch in Poland after registering in National Court Register
After the branch’s registration in the Polish Commercial Register one should fulfil a few more formalities. The most important ones constitute:
- reporting the foreign entrepreneur to the Internal Revenue Service – as a consequence, the Internal Revenue Service shall issue a unique Tax Identification Number [Polish: NIP] for a foreign entrepreneur;
- reporting a foreign company’s branch to the Internal Revenue Service – if the branch company is going to hire employees, it must apply for a separate Tax Identification Number [Polish NIP] in order to comply with the responsibilities to cover Social Insurance contributions and advance personal income tax payments;
- registering as VAT payer– if the branch company will conduct business activities covered by this type of taxation (it is worth noting that the foreign entrepreneur is subject to registration, not the branch company itself).
All of the abovementioned applications shall be submitted on the official government forms, provided by Polish National Revenue Administration.
Activities of the branch – basic aspects
The business activity of the branch may cover only such scope of activities that is conducted by a foreign entrepreneur in his or her original country of registration. It constitutes quite a significant restriction in comparison to establishing a new limited liability company, which range of operations is unrestricted as long as it is legally permissible.
The branch company is obliged to pay corporate income tax (CIT) on the income generated on the territory of Poland. The branch company is also a VAT payer. Moreover, if the branch company hires employees, it also becomes a payer of Social Insurance contributions and advance personal income tax payments for its employees.
The foreign company’s branch in Poland is also obliged to keep and maintain accounting in the Polish language and in accordance with Polish accounting rules.
The branch company should have the original name of the foreign entrepreneur together with its legal form translated into Polish and an additional designation: ‘oddział w Polsce’ [branch in Poland].
Apparently, the activity of a foreign company’s branch in Poland has its own specifics. For your convenience, below we present several crucial differences between conducting business activity in the form of a branch company and limited liability company:
|Foreign company’s branch||Limited liability company (subsidiary)|
|Registration by notary required||NO||YES|
|The scope of activity||Identical with the scope of the parent company’s activity||Any activity allowed by law (resulting from the company’s agreement)|
|Share capital (minimum)||NON-APPLICABLE||5000 PLN|
|Entity’s assets||Part of the parent company’s assets||Separate from the parent company|
|Name||The original name of a foreign company with the legal form translated into Polish and with a designation of “oddzial w Polsce” [“branch in Poland”].||Any name with a designation: „spółka z ograniczoną odpowiedzialnością” [limited liability company]|

Cryptocurrencies still constitute a young but dynamically developing market in Poland. Due to the increased interest in virtual currencies the number of crypto frauds is also on the rise. Therefore, the cryptocurrency market gradually becomes the subject of new legal regulations at the national, EU and international levels. Their primary goal is to ensure financial security. Below we discuss the most current requirements related to business activities in the field of cryptocurrencies in Poland.
Polish legislature has decided to implement a chapter in the Act on Counteracting Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (‘the AML Act’) including regulations concerning business activities in the field of virtual currencies. We explain the introduced changes and resulting responsibilities for entities conducting business activities with regard to cryptocurrencies in Poland.
Amendments to the AML Act
The amendment to the AML Act entered into force on the 15th of May 2021. It aimed at implementing into the Polish legal system the solutions included in the Directive (EU) 2018/843 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2018, amending Directive (EU) 2015/849 on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purposes of money laundering or terrorist financing, and amending Directives 2009/138/EC and 2013/36/EU. The introduced changes mainly concern the cryptocurrency market in Poland.
Register of Virtual Currencies – what is it and what do you need to know?
Since 31st October 2021, business activity in the field of virtual currencies constitutes a regulated activity as defined in regulations of the Act of 6th March 2018 Entrepreneurs’ Law. This means that it can be performed only after obtaining an entry in the virtual currency business register. The register is maintained by the Director of the Chamber of Tax Administration in Katowice. Its establishment aims to contribute to the increase of the transparency of the cryptocurrency market in Poland.
The creation of the virtual currency business register does not stem from the initiative of the Polish legislature. It results from the necessity to implement the recommendation of the Financial Action Task Force („FATF”) in the field of virtual assets. FATF has concluded that the activities of the entities providing services related to virtual assets should be licensed or, at least, registered. Hence, the Polish legislature has adopted a less formalized type of regulation.
Cryptocurrencies in Poland – which entities are obliged to obtain an entry into the cryptocurrency business register?
New regulations do not apply to every entrepreneur whose business activity operates within the field of cryptocurrencies. They mainly relate to entities specified in point 12 of Article 2 of the AML Act. The regulations identify entrepreneurs who conduct business activities in the field of virtual currencies that are related to:
- exchange between virtual currencies and means of payment,
- exchange between virtual currencies,
- intermediation in the aforementioned exchange,
- operating and maintaining virtual currency accounts.
This means that under the AML Act, ‘activity in the scope of virtual currencies’ constitutes a more narrow concept than in a common understanding.
Reputation, knowledge, experience – new requirements for entrepreneurs
Currently, economic activity in the scope of cryptocurrencies in Poland may be conducted exclusively by entities who have a rightful reputation as well as knowledge or experience specified in regulations. The aim of this solution is to provide a sufficient level of protection against using this kind of activity for criminal purposes.
The proper reputation of the entity may be considered in cases when the entrepreneur was not convicted for crimes indicated in 129 Article of the AML Act. This provision includes, among others, intentional crimes against the activity of state institutions and local government, against the administration of justice, and against the credibility of documents or money trading. The discussed requirement – depending on the legal form of business activity – concerns natural persons, management board members of corporations and shareholders in partnerships who are authorised to represent or conduct business operations. What is important, the requirement of no criminal record also applies to those who hold managerial positions connected with business activity in the scope of cryptocurrencies as well as actual beneficiaries of the entities conducting such activity.
When can it be concluded that an entrepreneur has the relevant knowledge or experience? After fulfilling at least one of the premises specified in 129 Article of the AML Act. These include:
- completing training or course that covers legal or practical issues related to virtual currency activities or
- performing for a period of at least one year activities related to virtual currencies.
Fulfilment of the abovementioned conditions has to be proved with appropriate supporting documents.
When one should submit a request for entry into the virtual currency business register?
Economic entities that are about to start conducting cryptocurrency activities are required to obtain the relevant registration before the actual beginning. Those entrepreneurs who conducted such activities before 31st October 2021 should take care of the relevant entry no later than 30th April 2022.
How to apply for entry into Cryptocurrency Business Register?
The application for entry into Cryptocurrency Business Register should be submitted to the Director of the Chamber of Tax Administration in Katowice. This can be done exclusively in electronic form via the ePUAP government services platform. The authority should proceed with entry into the register within 14 days from the moment of submitting the complete application together with all the required statements.
Submitting the application is associated with the necessity to pay fees. These include the amount of 616 PLN for entry into the Cryptocurrency Business Register and 17 PLN for issuing a certificate of the entry into Cryptocurrency Business Register.
Cryptocurrencies in Poland – the consequences of not being registered into the virtual currency register
Entrepreneurs who will fail to comply with the registration obligation will have to face consequences in the form of penalty payment. In accordance with Article 153b of the AML Act, an economic entity operating within the scope of virtual currencies without obtaining the required entry into the register is subject to a fine of up to 100 000 PLN. However, one should remember that this is not the only possible penalty that threatens the entities that conduct business activity in the field of virtual currencies. All such economic entities constitute, in fact, obliged institutions in accordance with the AML Act. It means that the Act imposes on them not only numerous obligations but also sanctions for non-compliance.
The virtual currencies market is constantly growing. It’s not surprising as it creates many opportunities. On the other hand, it simultaneously carries some risks to financial security. Therefore, legislators of many countries, including Poland, pay more and more attention to it. The aim of creating a register of cryptocurrencies in Poland and identifying business activities in this field as regulated is to reduce the risk of money laundering and financing of terrorism. In order to avoid negative consequences, entrepreneurs should adapt to current regulations and closely monitor changes.

Yes, you read that right. It is possible to run your business in Europe and not pay income tax. We’re talking about Poland and the possibility of choosing the taxation of a Polish company with the so-called “Estonian CIT”.
Estonian CIT – how does it work?
“Estonian CIT” – or officially corporate income tax lump sum – is a type of corporate income taxation that allows the company to run business tax-free as long as their owners do not consume profits on private purposes nor transfer them to their personal accounts. This solution is based on regulations previously introduced in Estonia. That’s why it is commonly called an “Estonian corporate income tax” or simply “Estonian CIT”. The replacement of classical CIT with such a tax was adopted in Estonia in the year 2000, and has had astonishing economic effects there, including an almost doubling of the rate of economic growth and private investments.
The traditional taxation model of a company involves paying monthly advance payments of corporate income tax and at the end of the year the taxpayer is required to file an annual return. In case of a Estonian CIT, there are no advance payments or tax returns as long as the profit remains in the company. The Estonian CIT allows therefore the company not only to not pay any income tax but also the company responsibilities related to accounting records are severely limited!
Choosing Estonian CIT therefore means that the company will not have to pay income tax regularly (monthly/quarterly/yearly), but only when it decides to pay out the profit to shareholders. This provides the company with more funds for day-to-day operations, expansion of business activities or new investments! Can you imagine a better tax solution for an investor?
Who can apply the Estonian CIT in Poland?
The Estonian CIT may be (obviously) applied only by legal entities.
There are several type of Polish companies that may apply this form of taxation:
- Limited liability company (pol. Spółka z ograniczoną odpowiedzialnością)
- Joint Stock Company (pol. Spółka Akcyjna)
- Simple Joint Stock Company (pol. Prosta Spółka Akcyjna)
- Limited partnership (pol. Spółka komandytowa)
- Limited joint-stock partnership (pol. Spółka komandytowo-akcyjna)
Conditions of applying Estonian CIT by Polish Company
There are, however, some conditions that must be fulfilled in order to apply Estonian CIT:
- the company employs at least 3 persons;
- the shareholders or partners of the company are exclusively natural persons (however, there is no requirement for shareholders to have Polish citizenship);
- the company does not prepare financial statements in accordance with International Accounting Standards.
Apart from fulfilling the above conditions, there are also certain exemptions from the possibility to apply the Estonian CIT. These exemptions mostly relate to the type of company or type of business in which the company is involved in. If such a circumstance did not exist when opting for Estonian CIT, but appears later – the company loses the right to apply this form of taxation.
The Estonian CIT may not be applied by:
- companies whose 50% or more of revenues comes from so-called passive sources (e.g. receivables, interest),
- companies that own shares in another companies (or titles of participation in an investment funds);
- companies being the financial institutions (e.g. banks, lending companies);
- companies operating in a special economic zones;
- companies keeping accounting records in accordance with standards other than Polish;
- companies formed as a result of a merger or division;
- companies that are put into liquidation or bankruptcy.
Estonian CIT is not the default form of company taxation. Switching to it is voluntary and depends on the will of the taxpayer. In order to do so, the company must submit a formal notice on the choice of this form of taxation to the relevant tax authority – either by the end of the 1st month of the tax year in which the company intends to use Estonian CIT or during the tax year (in the latter case, however, classic CIT must be settled, the company accounting books must be closed and the financial statements must be prepared. This allows for the correct determination of the tax base for the period of application of Estonian CIT).
Estonian CIT tax rates
At some point, the company shareholders will probably decide to pay out the income – at this moment the Estonian CIT needs to be paid. So, the Estonian CIT is paid when profits are distributed and at a different rate than standard Corporate Income Tax. For small taxpayers and for taxpayers starting a business under these rules, Estonian CIT rate is 10% and for other taxpayers it’s 20%.
But wait, isn’t CIT rates in Poland are 9% (for small taxpayers) and 19% for other companies? So how is Estonian CIT profitable?
Well, we have to look at the big picture. It should be remembered that the shareholder of the company (company that is tax payer of Corporate income tax) pays separately personal income tax (PIT) from dividends in 19% rate. The effective tax rate (CIT + PIT) under the general rules is therefore higher than the Estonian CIT rate.
Moreover, a shareholder of a company that has opted for Estonian CIT has the right to reduce the PIT (resulting from the receipt of dividends) by the relevant part of the CIT paid by the company. The effective taxation will therefore be lower than in the case of CIT and PIT under the general rules. As a result, the shareholder may save on this solution, not only if dividends are not paid, but also when the profit is actually paid out to shareholders!
Let’s see how this looks on the example (with ‘small taxpayer’ i.e. a company that has not exceeded the threshold of 2 million EUR revenue annually):
|Regular CIT||Estonian CIT|
|Company profit (in PLN)||1.000.000||1.000.000|
|CIT tax rate||9%||10%|
|Taxation of a dividend (in PLN)||Profit distributed – 910.000
Tax on dividend (19%) – 172.900
|Profit distributed: 1.000.0000
Tax on dividend (19%): 190.000
Tax reduction (90%): 90.000
Dividend tax after reduction: 100.000
|Total tax (in PLN)||262.900 (26.29%)||200.000 (20%)|
It should be noted, however, that profit distribution is understood widely – it is not only the formal payment of dividends on the basis of a shareholders’ resolution, but also any other events that produce such an effect. This refers to situations when the profit is intentionally paid out in a manner other than in the form of a dividend, e.g. when the company grants a non-refundable loan to the shareholder.
So you can easily see that Estonian CIT is a great solution for investors. It is worth noting that many favourable changes in Estonian CIT have taken place since the beginning of year 2022 (previously there was, for example, a requirement for a company to incur sufficient capital expenditures in order to qualify for Estonian CIT, which was abolished at the beginning of this year). Tax advisors therefore estimate that the number of companies benefiting from Estonian CIT will increase significantly this year.

In the past few years, Poland has become a leader among European countries when it comes to the best destinations for establishing businesses by foreign investors. It results from a long-term policy that aims at encouraging entrepreneurs to invest in Poland. One aspect of its manifestations concerns the issue of Special Economic Zones. What are the Special Economic Zones and what are the benefits connected with conducting business activities within their area?
Special Economic Zones – what are they?
Special Economic Zones have been operating in Poland since 1994. They constitute separate areas on the territory of the Republic of Poland where entrepreneurs can conduct business under special, more favorable conditions as compared to other parts of the country.
By supporting the development of investments, the Special Economic Zones contribute to the economic growth of a given area. On the other hand, they simultaneously offer a wide range of business conveniences for entrepreneurs, such as tax exemptions and remissions that make locating a business in this area highly profitable for an investor.
The list of Special Economic Zones is available on the official website of the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology.
What are the benefits of Special Economic Zones for the investors?
The primary advantage stemming from investing in Special Economic Zone is the possibility to use income tax exemptions (CIT or PIT, depending on the type of the conducted business activity). The limit of the exemption is calculated as the percentage of the incurred investment expenditure or, alternatively, based on the two years’ labor costs of new employees. The total value of the income tax exemption is also dependent on the investment location, the size of the enterprise, and the amount of investment expenditure. It is worth mentioning that in some regions of Poland one can retrieve up to 70% of the incurred costs.
Some of the Special Economic Zones also offer the possibility to obtain a real estate tax exemption. This kind of exemption is usually granted to new investors and it covers a period of time that is defined in advance.
The other benefits of investing in Special Economic Zones include funds and grants for:
– creating new jobs,
– research and development activities (R&D),
– activities related to environmental protection, training, logistics, or renewable energy sources.
Investing within Special Economic Zones facilitates obtaining financial aid from District Labor Offices or from European Union funds.
Other advantages of investing within Polish Special Economic Zones
Apart from the obvious profits connected with tax exemptions or simplified procedures for obtaining grants and investment funds, the Special Economic Zones also provide other significant benefits – especially for foreign investors.
It is worth mentioning that the Zones are created on territories that are highly industrialized and attractive in terms of investments and business activities. Frequently, they use an infrastructure remaining after those branches of industry that are no longer developing. As a result, it is possible to rent or even buy properties that are already located in Special Economic Zone. The Zones offer not only warehouses and production facilities but also office buildings e.g. dedicated for shared services centers or call centers.
The location of Special Economic Zones also takes into account the high availability of qualified employees. The vicinity of academic centers that ensure a steady inflow of well-educated employees is frequently taken into consideration in the process of establishing the Zones. Many of them remain in constant cooperation with higher education institutions in order to take advantage of the educational and intellectual potential of the region.
The support offered by companies managing the Special Economic Zones should be also mentioned. They provide legal and organizational assistance in the process of communication with the local authorities or while negotiating with utility providers. The aforementioned solution constitutes a significant convenience, especially for foreign investors, who are not yet familiar with certain aspects of running a business in Poland.
The rules of conducting business activities within a Special Economic Zone
Until now, the entrepreneurs wishing to benefit from the advantages offered by Special Economic Zone had to first obtain special permission to conduct a business activity within its territory. Currently, the permits have been replaced by support decisions that are issued on the basis of the Act on Support for New Investments. The support decision is an administrative decision that enables entrepreneurs to obtain CIT or PIT income tax exemption, limited to a maximum value specified in that decision.
The support decision is issued at the request of the entrepreneur, by the management of Special Economic Zones on behalf of the minister in charge of economy. It is issued for a specified period of 10, 12, or 15 years.
What is Polish Investment Zone and will it replace Special Economic Zones?
In 2018, after 24 years of operating, it has been decided that the Special Economic Zones program should be updated and broadened. A new support instrument for entrepreneurs has been established under the name of the Polish Investment Zone. It constitutes an expansion and development of the existing Special Economic Zones and is intended to replace them eventually. Under current legislation, Special Economic Zones will be operating until the 31st of December 2026.
The aims of the Polish Investment Zone and Special Economic Zones are fairly similar. The main difference concerns the possibility to benefit from exemptions in a situation when business activities are also conducted outside the specified area of the Zone. The idea of the Polish Investment Zone is best described in words: “The entire Poland becoming a Special Economic Zone”. The slogan was used to promote the establishment of the Polish Investment Zone.
According to the data published on the official Government website, there were 1 521 support decisions issued within the scope of the Polish Investment Zone (from September 2018 till the end of 2021), of the total declared value worth 73,4 billion PLN and with a declaration to create 31 569 new job positions.
There is no doubt that conducting business activities and investing within Special Economic Zones in Poland has many advantages. However, in order to fully and properly use their potential, some requirements have to be fulfilled. The first one is to submit an application for issuing the support decision. Our law firm has many years of experience in assisting and advising entrepreneurs on starting businesses within the territory of Special Economic Zones. In the first place, we analyze the subject of the enterprise activities, as well as its business records, in terms of meeting the necessary requirements for obtaining a positive decision. Secondly, depending on the findings of the conducted analysis, we offer assistance in the preparation of the request as well as support during the whole process of obtaining the decision and its implementation. For more detailed information, we recommend contacting our specialists.
