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!
