Business activity

A person applying for this type of residence permit in Poland should demonstrate that he/she has a stable and regular source of income sufficient to support him/herself and the members of his/her family in Poland.

From 1 October 2018, the minimum amount is at least PLN 528 net per person in a family or PLN 701 net in the case of a single householder.

Documentary evidence of a stable source of income may include, but is not limited to

– the company’s balance sheet with a current profit and loss account

– documents confirming the achievement in the tax year preceding the submission of the application of an income not less than twelve times the current average monthly salary on the day of submitting the application, e.g. CIT 8 of the company for the previous year together with a proof of sending to the tax office, accounting documents confirming the current financial result of the company.

An account statement is not a document confirming a stable, regular income, because it only represents the balance of a bank account at a given time and is an exhaustible source of income.

In the case of regular inflows to an account, it is therefore necessary to document their source.
