On 1st July 2021 in Polish jurisdiction a revolutionary change has taken place. Namely, there has been amended an Act on the National Court Register (Journal of laws of 2021, item 112 as amended). The amendment is about an introduction of an electronic registration procedure. Especially the form of filing applications for the entry in the Register of Entrepreneurs of the National Court Register will be changed. The amendment mainly concerns the registration issue of the limited liability company and the partnerships.
The National Court Register Act amendment is caused by a necessity to implement the European Parliament directives and the EU’s Council directives on some of the company law aspects (2017/1132 EU; 2012/17/ EU, etc.). The issue of the adaptation to the European Union law can be found in the first article (art.1) of the Amendment Act of the National Court Registration Act.
On the 3th July 2021 the amendments of the Rules of Polish Civil Procedure and other statutory laws (especially the statutory law about solutions related to preventing, counteracting and combating COVID- 19) have entered into force.
The Act of the Council of Ministers’ initiative provides for a number of changes in the Polish civil procedure, including:
of witnesses in remote hearings,

Due to the constant development of businesses and the fact that they are, more and more often, operating from several countries around the world at once, legal regulations concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services have appeared. This model is profitable for the businesses, because they can move their biggest ‘talents’ to offices and countries that could use their abilities in the best way. For the employees, on the other hand, it could pose a chance for development and give them a possibility to move abroad without having to look for another job. Initiatives like this are supported by the European Union – in 2019 they even issued a practical guide on posting (link)
Issues concerning global mobility are regulated, among others, by the Directive 96/71/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 1996 concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services, OJ L 018 21.1.1997, p. 1-9 (later: Directive 96/71/EC), Directive 2014/67/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 on the enforcement of Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services and amending Regulation (EU) No 1024/2012 on administrative cooperation through the Internal Market Information System ( ‘the IMI Regulation’ ) Text with EEA relevance, OJ L 159, 28.5.2014, p. 11–31 (later: Directive 2014/67/EU) and in Directive (EU) 2018/957 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 28 June 2018 amending Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services (Text with EEA relevance), OJ L 173, p. 16-24 (later: Directive 2018/957).
bankruptcy cases are regulated in Poland majorly by the Insolvency Act of 2003
(in Polish: Ustawa z dnia 28 lutego 2003 r. Prawo upadłościowe (t.j. Dz. U. z
2020 r. poz. 1228 z późn. zm.)) (later: ‘Insolvency Act of 2003’). Yet
it is not the only applicable regulation. In cases of cross-border bankruptcy
proceedings or cases where a Polish citizen is adjudged bankrupt in the
territory of the Member State of the European Union or Ireland, the bankruptcy
proceedings are regulated by the Regulation (EU) 2015/848 of the European
Parliament and of the Council of 20 May 2015 on insolvency proceedings (OJ L
141, 5.6.2015, p. 19-72) (later: ‘Regulation 2015/848’).
