getsix® GERMAN DESK –
We advise you in the German language, as if you are in Germany
Every year thousands of German businesses and individuals invest in or expand with their businesses into Poland. As a market, Poland has much to offer and there is a long-standing history of active commercial activity between Germany and Poland.
There are, however, considerable differences between Germany and Poland in terms of legal structure, on the one hand there are very different tax laws, and on the other there are Polish customary practices. For a ‘German Desk’ business this can mean complications when entering into the Polish market, and it is advisable to seek advice at an early stage.
For many years the native German-speaking partners of getsix® and their team of experts, consisting of German-speaking Polish accountants and consultants, has been providing support and advice regarding Poland and international cross-border transactions to both commercial and private clients from Germany.

Polish Financial and Accounting System vs. International Financial Reporting Standards (IAS/IFRS)
It is important to remember that International Accounting Standards (IAS) or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) have not been fully adopted by the Polish legislator. In Poland the provisions of the Polish Accounting Act are absolutely binding. In the absence of exact regulations, a company should follow the national accounting standards before applying the International Accounting Standards. Due to inter-group settlements between related companies there may be a need to consolidate Polish financial statements with international, German or American (GAAP) accounting standards.
We have practical knowledge and extensive experience in:
- preparation of annual financial statements for related companies;
- preparation of HGB II and HGB I consolidation packages for German companies;
- converting annual reports in line with IAS/IFRS;
- carrying out financial due diligence analyses
getsix® offers a reporting and analysis system tailored to your needs.
As of 1 January 2015, all companies listed on the stock exchanges of the EU member states, thus also on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, have to prepare consolidated financial statements according to IFRS. The Polish Accounting Act also imposed this requirement on all banks. With its constant readiness for change in the field of accounting getsix® delivers services responding to the changing needs of our customers.
