The company delivered a ready-to-go business, with VAT and EU VAT registration. Paperwork and the whole re-registration process was handled efficiently. I recommend this to anyone looking for a no-hassle company acquisition.
Company name of your choice? Check. Accounting services? Check. Help with tax authorities? Check. Finding a translator? Check. What can I say, these people are great and can help you with just anything.
We needed to start building our presence in Poland fast, and a ready-made company seemed like the best option. We got presented with several location choices, picked the company name, signed some paperwork and were good to go. We got a company that was VAT-registered, with multiple bank accounts, just as we wanted.
Thank you for all the help. Your after-sale support is what sets you apart from the competition. It was important for me to get comprehensive company services at one place, with accounting, banking, tax issues handled for me, etc. I got everything I needed.
I really recommend this website if you are looking for a shelf company in Poland. The companies are already registered, with no history and all documentation in place. This is really a great solution if you want to start your business ASAP. And the range of available post-sale services is just amazing.
Thank you for your support! Your advice was invaluable. Polish tax and legal provisions can really be a pain in the neck, but with your help I am able to get going.
Not only did we need a new company, but also someone to take care of our accounting and compliance. Now, we must say ShelfCompanies24 helped us to transition smoothly into the Polish market. Good work, guys!
