Employers of Poland, the Ministry of Development and “Super Biznes” have joined forces to find regulations which are most disruptive for economic growth, faulty and unclear and have them changed. The “Stop bureaucracy” campaign is intended directly for entrepreneurs – the worst regulations will be chosen on the basis of an online survey.
– The spirit of entrepreneurship among Poles is very strong, which they have proven many Times in the past and continue to prove today – in spite of expanding bureaucracy and an onslaught of obligations and formalities with which they are faced. Acquiring permits and decisions, submitting forms – this is their daily bread. Meeting tax obligations alone takes up an average of over 270 hours a year – President of Employers of Poland Andrzej Malinowski explains the rationale of the campaign.
Employers of Poland have long pointed to bureaucracy as one of the most serious threats to entrepreneurship, more so than even the strongest competition. Restricting bureaucratism was the topic of the most recent edition of the Polish Economic Congress, held under the patronage of the President of Poland Andrzej Duda, who declared his full support for the idea.
Research discussed at the Congress clearly shows that unclear law, conflicting and absurd regulations and a ubiquitous excess of formalities are seen as the biggest barriers for the development of Polish entrepreneurship. Therefore, the Ministry of Development, Employers of Poland, and “Super Biznes” have decided to organize the “Stop bureaucracy” campaign.
Entrepreneurs can fill out a survey by responding to three questions on conducting economic activity in our country. The responses will serve as the basis for the selection of the most harmful regulations.
Changes are possible – one only needs to remind of the amendment to the act on the National Court Register, which came into force on December 1st 2014, shortening the waiting time for the opening of economic activity. Instead of a month, a few days are now enough, as NIP and REGON are generated automatically.
The survey can be found on the website of „Super Biznesu”.
