Transformation of a Polish company – why is it worth using the support of a lawyer? 

The decision to transform a company may be motivated by business growth, a desire to reduce personal liability for company obligations, or realization that doing business in another legal form will be more profitable. Business transformation under Polish law is not a simple procedure (especially for foreign entrepreneurs), and practice shows that mistakes are often made in the course of it, which unnecessarily prolong the process and generate costs. Therefore, when planning to transform a company, it is advisable to use the help of a Polish lawyer specializing in such processes. 

Transforming a company with a lawyer saves time  

Transformation of a company, which under Polish regulations requires an audit of the transformation plan by an expert auditor, usually takes experienced lawyers between 2 to 4 months. In a situation where the company's transformation can be done without examining the transformation plan, the entire procedure should normally take between 1 to 2 months. During this time, the situation of the company being transformed should be analyzed in detail, especially with regard to the assets it owns, administrative decisions obtained and contracts. Using the help of a professional also often helps to make the transformation process less cumbersome and time-consuming for business owners. Coordination of all stages of the transformation by a professional lawyer, who will ensure smooth cooperation between the accountant, notary and auditor, can be a key factor in quick completion of operations.   

Transformation of a company without unnecessary problems and complications 

Polish lawyers specializing in business transformation should demonstrate knowledge not only of commercial law, but also of labor law, civil law, tax law, accounting and even administrative law. Failure to take a comprehensive look at these issues can result in the transformation itself doing more harm than good to the company. A lawyer specializing in transformation will ensure, among other things, that the newly formed company has all the licenses and permits necessary to continue its operations.

Transforming a company with the help of a professional saves money  

The remuneration of a lawyer specializing in company transformations under Polish law is just one of the costs associated with transforming a company. It should be remembered, however, that although the fee of an experienced lawyer is an additional cost of the entire transformation procedure, the advice of a professional often saves costs resulting from mistakes made during the transformation procedure. The assistance of a professional also often proves essential for choosing the best and most advantageous legal form for a company.
