Accounting for Family Foundations

Maintaining accounting records for Family Foundations

“Family Foundation” is a new institution introduced into the Polish legal system. It is governed by the provisions of the Polish Accounting Act. What is important, organizations established as Family Foundations are governed neither by the act on foundations nor by the act on non-governmental organizations (since family foundations, rather than pursuing public interests, are going to primarily pursue private ones).

Running a family foundation certainly poses one of the biggest challenges in terms of accounting, tax issues, and law. It is just worth keeping in mind that the accounting obligations of entities governed by the Accounting Act include, for example:

adopted accounting principles, accounting policy;
• bookkeeping;
• periodical determining or checking (in a way of making an inventory) of the actual state of assets and liabilities;
• preparation of financial statements.

Everyone who wants to be ensured that all the accounting and tax settlements in their Family Foundation are correct, is best to outsource the accounting to experts. We have many years of experience and a team which consists of over 250 specialists based in our Warsaw and Katowice branches. This allows us to claim that we can provide the accounting services for any family foundation reliably and efficiently. The task would often require additional activities such as e.g. performing statutory audits of the foundation – however, based on our know-how and experience, we are sure that we can comprehensively address all such needs as they appear.
