Polish companies complain about the bureaucracy and rightly so. Micro-companies must annually fill up to approx. 130 official forms.
And when a company grows, there is still more disclosure obligations. In large companies, the number of forms that must be filled each year and sent to different offices already reaches an average 345 – according to the most recent report of an auditing and consulting firm Grant Thornton.
Piotr Wołejko, an expert for socio-economic affairs of Employers of Poland, argues that even if forms are very simple and monothematic, it is difficult to understand the need for hundreds of requests for information. The more so that in addition to offices data requests are also sent by non-state actors. – There is no obligation to answer, of course, but entrepreneurs are the best source of information about the situation in the economy and the industry – says Wołejko.
