How can a foreigner without the Pole’s Card set up a one-person business in Poland?

Poland is an attractive country for foreigners, mainly Ukrainians and Belarusians, who want to start a business in Europe. This is due to its geographical location, well-developed infrastructure, availability of resources and skilled workforce. Moreover, Poland is a member of the European Union and has a stable economy, which makes it an attractive location for investment.

However, the process of registering a company in Poland can be complicated and requires knowledge of local regulations and, most importantly, the Polish language. To simplify the process, you can turn to experienced professionals who can help with the legal registration of companies and sole proprietorships, as well as the selection of premises to rent, registration of vehicles for the company, registration of licenses, etc. All these services are provided by only one company – M&M Biuro, which is located in the very heart of Warsaw and is ready to help young entrepreneurs with all formalities.

What types of companies are most commonly chosen by foreigners in Poland?

There are several types of companies that can be registered in Poland. One of the most popular types is Spółka z ograniczoną odpowiedzialnością (Sp. z o.o.), which means a limited liability company. This is a type of company that has limited liability for the owners, meaning that they are not personally liable for the company’s debts. However, a minimum capital of PLN 5,000 (approximately EUR 1,200) is required to register a limited liability company.

Another type of company that can be registered in Poland is a sole proprietorship (JDG). This is a type of company that can be registered by one person and does not require a minimum capital. However, the owner has no limited liability and is personally liable for the company’s debts.

How to open a sole proprietorship for Ukrainians without a Pole’s Card?

Until March 2022, only foreigners with one of the following documents could register such a business: a residence card, a Pole Card or a residence card.

However, due to the large influx of refugees from Ukraine, Poland has decided to relax the rules for talented entrepreneurs, who are now entitled to open their own business on Polish territory with a minimum package of documents at hand.

To open a sole proprietorship, Ukrainians can now:

-cross the border after 24 February 2022.

-have a PESEL with UKR status

And that’s it! It is also not necessary to pay initial capital to open IE in Poland. And it’s even easier if you do it all through M&M Office in Warsaw, where all the formalities will be handled by real professionals. We work quickly and thoroughly, we have a lot of experience and we will help you open your own company in Poland!

How does setting up a company in Poland work?

There are several steps to register a company in Poland.

1.Choose the type of company and register it in the National Court Register.

2.Register at the tax office and obtain a NIP (Tax Identification Number) and REGON (National Economy Register) number.

3.Registration with the ZUS (Social Insurance Institution), which is responsible for social insurance.

In addition to the registration of the company, it is also necessary to obtain a licence for certain activities and to correctly select the category of activity.

Need it be said that all the above-mentioned institutions are a dark forest in which an untrained person can easily get lost? Unfortunately, there is still a lot of bureaucracy in Poland and if you miss one document or bring the wrong one, you risk being rejected. We recommend that you contact us as we have been through this procedure many times and know the pitfalls you may encounter.

Poland offers many opportunities to live and do business, as well as affordable real estate.

Absolutely every foreigner will sooner or later face the question of legalizing their stay. However, although there are clear lists of documents and deadlines, there may be some difficulties in obtaining a residence card that you should be aware of.

In order to obtain a visitor’s card in Poland, you must have a certain set of documents. These may include your passport, proof of funds, health insurance and other important documents.

These are small things you may not think about, but the true professionals at M&M Office are fully aware of all the nuances.

In Poland, there is a limit on the number of guest cards you can hold per year. For this reason, people often encounter delays or complete rejection of their application. It is therefore advisable to apply for a Residence Card as early as possible.

Certain categories of people may find it difficult to obtain a visitor’s card. For example, they may be citizens of certain countries that have complicated relations with Poland, or people who have problems with the law in their home country.

How can a refugee from Ukraine obtain refugee status in Poland in 2023? Key information and principles

It is the second year of the war in Ukraine and the second year that refugees are in limbo under Polish law. The special law on assistance to Ukrainians in Poland was recently amended to regulate the issue of obtaining a residence card for refugees from Ukraine. Polish officials explain that according to these changes, any Ukrainian who arrives after 24.02.2022 can obtain a residence card in Poland.

Our M&M Office team also helps Ukrainians with UKR PESEL status to obtain a Residence Card. All you need to do is call one of our contact numbers:

+48 735 460 057

+48 532 317 831 (all communicators) and we will consider the best way to legalize your stay in Poland.


It is now possible to apply for a residence card online! All you need to do is to use the Module of Case Service (MOS), which is available in 7 languages, including Ukrainian.

Just follow 3 steps:

-Go to mos.cudzoziemcy.gov.pl/ua
-complete the online form and submit it.
-print the form, sign it and submit it during a personal visit to the Provincial Office.


Additional features of the MOS include the possibility to check whether the applicant has the right to stay in Poland, to obtain information on the procedures for entry, exit and stay of foreigners in Poland, as well as information on errors that may occur when submitting documents.

From 1 April 2023, refugees from Ukraine can already apply for a residence card on the basis of:

-official employment

-conducting official economic activity

-possession of a blue card

However, for those refugees who are not employed or do not wish to obtain a Residence Card, the extension of temporary protection will allow them to remain in the territory of Poland. The possibility to apply for a residence permit is optional.

Following the European Commission’s decision to extend temporary protection, there is a good chance that the temporary protection, which expires on 24 August, will be extended until at least 4 March 2024.


In our opinion, obtaining a residence card for refugees from Ukraine is a very good solution and a basis for further legalization of their stay in Poland. Unfortunately, the geopolitical situation is still very unstable and no one can predict when Ukrainian refugees will be able to return home. For the time being, obtaining a Residence Card is optional, but it is possible that a law will come into force obliging all refugees to obtain a residence permit in Poland.

A residence card and a provincial invitation are two different documents that serve different purposes.

A residence card is issued to a foreigner who plans a longer stay in Poland. The residence card allows the holder to officially stay in Poland for a long period of time and to access various services, such as work, education, medical care, etc.

A provincial invitation, on the other hand, is issued to a foreigner who plans to come to Poland for a short period of time for a specific purpose, such as work, tourism, business meetings, visiting relatives, etc.

Thus, it can be said that a residence card and a provincial invitation are different documents that serve different purposes and have different requirements for obtaining them.
