What register can be used to prove the existenace and the representatives of an organisation?




Krajowy Rejestr Sądowy

Every organisation form in Poland which is separate person in front of court must have KRS number


Not avaliable

Organisations, that are legally formed but aren't person in law are registered under separate conditions (student association is registered on university, voluntary assosciation registered by town president etc.)

see Policies

Anything else you can think off?

I think that organisation when possible should be checked against online KRS browser because of freshness of data. Information from KRS browser should be printed to PDF.
