Closing business activity

Irrespective of how you close your business activity, you must meet a number of obligations in relation to your head of the tax office.

The scope of your obligations depend on i.a. the legal form in which the activity was carried out and, in the case of entry in the CEIDG also on the form of taxation (PIT).

One of the basic measure is the inventory of  assets. Moreover, the head of the tax office needs to be informed about the completion of conducting business activity and one needs to make the deregistration as a VAT taxable person.

You don't know how to carry out inventory, we can help you. Familiarise yourself with The rules governing conducting inventory.
