Since joining the European Union in 2004, Poland’s economy has grown rapidly.
Poland is a regional leader in development and innovation and is also well-known for supporting start-ups.
Setting Up to Launch
When setting your business up in Poland as a non-resident importer, you’ll need to secure a VAT Registration and an EU EORI number before launching your brand in Poland. The Polish tax office typically requires periodic filings on a monthly basis.
When it comes to product compliance, Poland is a country with strict regulations. To ensure your products meet the necessary standards, you may need to appoint authorized representatives or responsible persons for food and contact materials, electronics, and toys.
Launching Your Brand into Poland
Partnering with an Importer of Record is crucial in successfully importing your goods into Poland. Upon shipping your products, you’ll be required to pay a 23% VAT on the import value – typically the selling price of your goods. However, this VAT can be reclaimed.
It’s important to accurately classify your goods when importing into Poland, as duties will be based on this classification and are non-refundable. Direct shipping to Poland or other countries in the EU is also an option for your business.
