What is PESEL numer?

PESEL (Polish: Powszechny Elektroniczny System Ewidencji Ludności, Universal Electronic System for Registration of the Population) is the national identification number in Poland. It consists of 11 digits that are unique for every registered person.

Why do I need PESEL for Polish company management?

Since end of 2019 every Polish company needs to register itself in a new registry called Central Registry for Benefitiary Owners. If your company fails to meet this obligation it may be fined. In order to make registry entry you will be required to apply by electronic means using e-signature. The most popular e-signature in Poland: EPUAP (electronic trusted profile) is free of charge, but in order to get it, you will need PESEL number.

Electronic profile EPUAP will be also useful to sign financial statements and make amendments in National Court Registry.

How to get PESEL?

If you are foreigner living in Poland, you can register your residence – in such a situation, you will automatically obtain a PESEL Number. If you cannot register your residence, and any agency requires a PESEL Number from you – submit an application by yourself or by using attorney services.

The procedure is described on a Gov site.

With our help you will be able to do it remotely.
