Online register of entrepreneurs gets off to good start


More than 1,000 entrepreneurs have registered companies online during the first week after the launch of the Central Register and Information on Economic Activity (CEIDG) on 1 July 2011, Deputy Prime Minister and economy minister Waldemar Pawlak announced on 8 July, adding that the system was “operating well”. In terms of sector of activity, the biggest category among the new firms are e-commerce businesses. Geographically, the strongest-represented regions are Mazowieckie, Slaskie and Pomorskie.

To register via the CEIDG system, entrepreneurs need only fill an application form with information such as personal and address data, identification numbers (PESEL, NIP, REGON, where applicable), and their scope of activity. The entry is approved within 24 hours or one working day (though a later date can be chosen for the official start of activity). The system also makes it easy for entrepreneurs to suspend activities (between 30 days and 24 months), unless they have employees.

The CEIDG system was established by an amendment to the Freedom of Economic Activity Act passed on 13 May and in force since 1 July.
