Poland has introduced 9% of corporate income tax for those having 1.2 mil EUR max turnover. Which is now the lowest corporate tax, next to Hungarian.

We always advise clients to buy a shelf company rather than registering a new one. One of the reasons is that buying of already set up company can be done remotely and in one day. The share capital is already paid up, so there’s no need to get a bank account, and we can set up a remote online account. Another reason is that with your shelf company, you get a VAT number. If setting up a new one, obtaining VAT number can take up to 3 months.
