Company Incorporation Poland

There are generally two reasons why business investors set up companies abroad: to access new markets and to cut costs.

Poland joined the EU in 2004 and scores exceptionally well on both counts. The Polish market is the largest in Central Europe – larger, in fact, than the other nine new EU members put together – and labour costs are low.

Additionally, foreign investment is pouring into the country, fuelling sustained economic growth of more than 5% a year.

Branch and Subsidiary Information

Open a Branch in Poland

Establishing a branch of your company in Poland is done so under the authority of the Freedom of Business Act. Much of the process involved in setting up a branch is similar to that for a company, although there are regulations on the naming of the branch; it must take the name of the parent company, suffixed with “oddzial w Polsce” (branch in Poland).
