Etiquette rules in Poland

Coming to any country, tourists should understand what rules of conduct are accepted in it. Indeed, what is encouraged among some peoples will seem insulting to others. Poland is a Slavic country, the orders in it are in many ways similar to the Russian, Belarusian, Ukrainian. Still, there are some nuances here, and those who come to Poland should understand the peculiarities of its etiquette.

Greetings and goodbyes

In Poland, people should add the words "pan" or "pani" before their surname.

If a person is not known and not familiar, then you can contact him "pan" or "pani" plus a mention of his position. For example, “Pan Mitskevich” or “Pan waiter” (waiter), “Pani Wozniak” or “Pani teacher” (teacher).

During business negotiations, Poles greet each other with a traditional handshake for many nations.

They are welcomed in Poland with the words "good dien" or "good evening" (good afternoon, good evening); say goodbye, saying "bye" (goodbye).

Business negotiations

Business meetings in Poland are characterized by certain points:

  • Poles are not late for meetings. Punctuality is an indispensable condition for their trust in a person.
  • Before business negotiations, small talk is required, during which it is not customary to discuss politics, religion and social problems.
  • Business conversations with Poles are certainly supported by facts, evidence, specific data. They need to understand how reliable their business partner is above all else.
  • Poles are quite straightforward and do not like it when there is no openness and specifics in a conversation.
  • When communicating, it is not customary to be distracted by phone calls; it is better to turn off the sound in your mobile.
  • At business negotiations, participants must exchange business cards. Oral agreements in Poland are confirmed by business partners in writing. Often a second meeting is needed to sign a contract.

For successful communication with business partners from Poland, the main thing is to be open and consistent, as well as to support words with specificity on paper.

Etiquette rules in Poland

The Polish economy has been showing excellent results over the past ten years: stability, GDP growth, an increase in the purchasing power of the population. CIS citizens working in the Polish Republic also contributed to this success. At the same time, those Russians who decide to start their own business in Poland should understand that Poland is a country of small and medium-sized businesses (there are not many oligarchs-monopolists here) and that the conditions for doing business here differ in many respects from Russian realities. Let's take a closer look at the rules of the game.

Business in Poland and its main features

Business activities in Poland are regulated by the Civil Code of the Republic of Poland and laws such as:

  • "Code of Trade Companies" dated September 15, 2000 (Kodeks Spółek Handlowych - U nr 94 poz . 037);
  • "On economic activity" of November 19, 1999;
  • "On the free conduct of entrepreneurial activity" of July 2, 2004 ("On swobodzie działalności gospodarczej" . Dz. 2004 nr 173 poz).

These documents contain general principles of economic activity in general and entrepreneurship in particular. These include:

  • complete freedom to choose the type of economic activity and entrepreneurship;
  • minimizing state interference in economic activity and its regulation using market mechanisms;
  • equality in the rights (to obtain loans, to provide the means of production) and obligations of all business entities - private, state, foreign, Polish.

If a resident of another state owns more than 50% of the shares of a company, it is considered foreign. International agreements between Poland and other states may provide for additional rights or obligations for businessmen from these countries.

You can check the availability of such agreements in the online database of agreements on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland.

Polish legislation distinguishes several categories of foreigners: from EU countries, from countries participating in special agreements with Poland and the rest of the world. Depending on the category for foreign businessmen, the rules that they must comply with are clearly spelled out:

  • citizens of EU states, as well as countries participating in agreements with the EU, are entitled to do business in Poland in any form and on the same conditions as and Polish citizens (clause 3 "On swobodzie działalności gospodarczej" Dz. 2004 nr 173 poz);
  • CIS citizens, in order to have the same right, must legally register their presence in the country: have a Pole's Card, obtain a residence permit or permanent residence, have refugee status;
  • to purchase or rent real estate, you must obtain permission from the Ministry of Privatization;
  • the company must be registered with the CEIDG bureau;
  • to conduct activities in the field of sea and air transportation, law, real estate, wholesale imported goods, a special license is required in the military field.

The fulfillment of the above regulations is fully compensated for by the numerous advantages and bonuses that entrepreneurship brings in Poland. These include:

  • ease of legalization of business at minimum costs;
  • favorable geopolitical position of Poland, mental and linguistic proximity of the Slavic population for Belarusians, Russians and Ukrainians;
  • equal rights for foreign and Polish companies, observance by the Polish government of all guarantees for business;
  • Residence permit for a foreign businessman and his family with the prospect of obtaining permanent residence, free movement in the Schengen area;
  • the possibility of exit to new markets for an existing business;
  • an understandable tax system;
  • the availability of profitable lending in Polish banks;
  • the ability to save assets in banks of EU countries;
  • the right to purchase a vehicle and register it for a company in Poland;
  • additional bonuses for entrepreneurship in the field of cargo transportation;
  • the right to conduct business, receive subsidies and subsidies in other EU countries;
  • no customs duties when trading with EU countries;
  • affordable prices for real estate;
  • VAT refund in case of overpayments;
  • the ability to store and use other currencies other than zloty for calculation;
  • minimization of bureaucratic procedures, simplified maintenance tax documentation;
  • tax audits on the seventh day after notification.

Possible disadvantages are related to the restriction of foreign businessmen in choosing the form of doing business (Article 13 of the Law of the Republic of Poland "On swobodzie działalności gospodarczej" Dz. 2004 nr 173 poz) and the selection of personnel: the most trained personnel leave the country for looking for higher earnings in Germany, Ireland and other European countries.

Certain risks also exist in connection with unpredictable migration processes that may affect the change in the policy of the Polish government in relation to migrants.

There are many legal ways to immigrate to Poland and our company has been successfully implementing these options for many years.

On this tab, you can find out the details and leave an application for exactly this type of immigration to Poland, as Immigration to Poland under a work contract, i.e. obtaining a residence permit in Poland.

What you need to know when applying for a residence permit (residence permit) in Poland under a work contract?

First: you will need to confirm your place of work with a signed contract with a reliable employer. Second, you need to be eligible to work in Poland (visa, work permit, etc.). Among other things, you must have a residence permit and a tax number, and also your income level must not be lower than the subsistence level in this country.

When making decisions on immigration in this way, keep in mind that after applying for a residence permit, you automatically have the right to work in Poland for an indefinite period, including the period when you are expecting a residence permit. Speaking of the timing, they can only be estimated approximately, because they depend on the number of officials associated with the process and the number of such applications for a residence permit.

An important point! During the waiting period, we do not recommend leaving Poland, even within the EU.
