Poland catching-up regions : recommendations for easier business registration (English)

This short report presents recommendations to ease business registration in two Polish voivodships, Podkarpackie and Świętokrzyskie. It was prepared under a joint initiative of the European Commission, Poland’s Ministry of Economic Development, the Podkarpackie and Świętokrzyskie regions, and the World Bank.This initiative concentrates on supporting the two regions in preparing for the implementation of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds in a way that fosters economic growth and innovation. For the purposes of this report, the World Bank team has identified two factors – time and cost of registration – that have the most variation between Polish regions and the biggest potential for improvement in Podkarpackie and Świętokrzyskie voivodships. In the report, each of these areas is broken down into a set of concrete recommendations based on site visits to the local divisions of the national court registry (Krajowy Rejestr Sądowy, KRS) in Kielce/Rzeszów and Białystok, a top performer among KRS divisions in Eastern Poland.
