International accounting for branches of foreign companies

Foreign companies that intend to operate branches in Poland are often prepared for the rapid growth of their operating activities but without the resources necessary for fulfilling all the formal and legal requirements.

At the same time, from the very first day, such companies must conduct detailed reporting to their parent company abroad, report to the tax office, pay invoices, etc.  What is more, recently, new duties have been imposed on companies operating in Poland within the scope of SAF-T reporting, electronic financial statements, and split payment; simultaneously, there have been many changes in VAT and CIT regulations.

For most companies that start operations in Poland, finding their way in the complex regulations (while ensuring effective reporting to the parent company) is a very demanding or even impossible task.

Accounting services for foreign companies in Poland, but in English

At MDDP Outsourcing, we are aware of the fact that your Polish branch must ensure compliance with local regulations while involving as few operating resources of the Company as possible. It is a difficult task, especially due to frequently changing regulations in Poland as well as more and more restrictive requirements.

As we have already established thanks to long-term experience, another key requirement involves timely reporting in accordance with the group rules, with explanations on deviations from local regulations. Our experts care for the timeliness and compliance of your reports also by providing accounting services in English, which, according to the common opinion, seems to be a unique asset on the Polish market.

We provide the following accounting services for foreign companies that open their branches on the Polish market:

  • management of accounting records in accordance with regulations applicable in Poland, with acknowledgment of the specific nature of companies with a parent company abroad
  • management reporting to the parent company, IFRS, US GAAP, etc.
  • mapping of group and statutory plan of accounts
  • preparation of a plan of accounts and descriptions of transactions in two languages (Polish and English)
  • electronic circulation of documents – bilingual

Adits and inspections at the registered office of MDDP Outsourcing

A fiscal audit can be a problematic process that every company that conducts or starts business activities in Poland must be prepared for. Although, as a rule, the audit should take place at the entrepreneur’s registered office (the taxpayer is obligated to give access to a secluded, closed room necessary for the auditors to perform their duties), as a part of the services, the accounting office MDDP Outsourcing offers migration of fiscal audits to our office. Thanks to the fact that all your invoices will be stored in our archive, a financial audit is no longer problematic and we are able to address any accounting and tax questions of the auditing authority.
