From 1 July, the applications to the National Court Register (KRS) can be submitted only in an electronic form. The e-KRS applies to all entrepreneurs, except for associations, foundations, social organisations and public health care centres, for which the new solution is a voluntary option.
On 1 July 2021, an amendment to the provisions of the Act on the National Court Register (KRS) entered into force. The amendment made it mandatory for entrepreneurs to submit their registration applications via an ICT portal, i.e. in an online form.
Informatisation of the registration procedure before the KRS includes:
Moreover, the e-KRS portal allows the applicant to upload attachments online (these attachments are non-confidential so it is worth carefully verifying the file to be attached).
The language of the portal is Polish, and the applications can be submitted if the entrepreneur has an E-PUAP trust profile or a qualified signature.
The amendment also provides for documents, copies or certificates to be issued electronically, in addition to the traditional version, which is still available, and for which, after the changes, it is required to submit an electronic application for the issue of a paper document and pay a fee before it can be collected at the court’s premises.
