What you should know and who can benefit from the service

Who should have a 14-digit REGON number

Each local unit must have a 14-digit REGON. The first 9 digits are your identification number as an entrepreneur. The next 4 digits are the sequence number assigned to your establishment, and the last is a check digit for your entire business identification number.

The local unit is the establishment, branch or subsidiary of a given economic activity. This means that such a unit creates an organized whole, has its own address and there is at least one person working in it.

Submit an application for the assignment of a 14-digit REGON number also when:

  • you want to open a treatment facility (e. g. clinic, doctor's office, nursing office) - even if you run it at the same address as your registered office and do not prepare financial statements for it by yourself;
  • your establishment or branch is at the same address, but you prepare separate financial statements for it;
  • as part of your business, you carry out other activity that require additional registration (e. g. when you want to open a private school).

In addition, obtain entry if you conduct an activity related to:

  • transport - according to the places where you give instructions or organise work;
  • building industry - according to the place where:
    • you accept orders for construction and ancillary work, or
    • where the management board of the company works, or
    • where you organize construction and auxiliary works (e. g. building base) - where construction sites where the investment is being made are not local units.

CEIDG

If you register your activity with CEIDG and provide additional business locations in your application, the statistical office will automatically assign you a 14-digit REGON number based on the information from your registration application. Remember to indicate in your application the number of people working.

If you register your business and open an additional treatment centre, the REGON number will be assigned to you by the office:

  • automatically - if you want to run it at an address other than your registered office;
  • at your request - if you want to conduct it at the same address as your registered office.

If you already have an entry in the CEIDG and want to open a new establishment, apply for a change of entry in the CEIDG. On the basis of your application, the statistical office will assign you a 14-digit REGON number for your new place of business.

If you are not an entrepreneur (e. g. a farmer) - you are not subject to entry in the CEIDG - apply directly to the statistical office for assignment of the 14-digit REGON number to your local unit.

KRS

If you already have a registered company in the National Court Register and would like to open a branch, apply to the statistical office for a 14-digit REGON number for the local unit. This also applies to you if you are not registered with the National Court Register, for example if you have a civil partnership.

Remember that the entry or its change concerning the company or association takes place automatically on the basis of data sent from the National Court Register to the statistical office.

When should you handle the matter

Submit the application within 14 days of creating an establishment, branch or subsidiary.

Where you can handle the matter

The service can be handled at:

  • Statistical Offices

It is good to know

Inform the Office of changes

Remember to notify the office of any changes to your entry. This is your responsibility. An application for a change of data is submitted on the same form that is used to obtain an entry in the REGON register (submitted in CEIDG or directly to statistical office). The application should be submitted within 7 days from the occurrence of new circumstances. Use the same forms that are used to obtain an entry in the REGON register.
