Global Expansion in Poland
Poland is an attractive European country to expand your business to. Since the 1990s when it transformed into a market economy, it has become Europe’s biggest economic success story. It’s a low risk market with the same EU market regulatory framework as the UK, and has a resilient economy.
Thanks to a large and attractive internal market, a central European location and good opportunities in key sectors, it’s no wonder businesses are looking to expand to Poland.
Though there are positives, like any international expansion, there are many key payroll and HR considerations to take into account. That’s where IRIS FMP come in. We take the hassle out of international payroll and HR and help make sure your processes are legal, compliant and managed effectively. Get in touch with one of our experts today.

What tax considerations are there?
In Poland, Polish residents are subject to income tax on their worldwide income and non-residents are subject to income tax on their Polish income only. Income tax is calculated on a progressive tax scale, based on employees’ income. Employees are also subject to social security contributions.
Additionally, businesses must pay corporate income tax with revenues of up to EUR 1.200.000 in the given tax year, and there are differing VAT rates of 23%, 8%, 5%, and 0%, depending on the type of goods and services.
