Accounting services

Sterling Accounting offer comprehensive financial and accounting services conducted in the English language.
Your accounting records will be run in the Polish language in accordance with Polish standards, as required by the local laws. However, contact with clients will be conducted in English, either in person or via telephone or email.
We can also arrange for the translation of your documents into English – or any other language – through the services of a sworn translator.

Our standard bookkeeping package consists of:

Polish regulations can be complex and ambiguous and the formal requirements can be rather restrictive. Our specialists are able to provide clients with detailed instructions on how to conduct their businesses in Poland from an accounting point of view in order to fully comply with these requirements.

At Sterling Accounting we can guide you through the most important tax laws in order to avoid common mistakes in areas such as the issuing of VAT invoices or posting costs to minimise tax burdens.

Our Charges:

Because each of our foreign clients has a unique set of needs and expectations, the cost of providing an accounting service in the English language is negotiated individually during our first meeting, where detailed terms of engagement can be negotiated.
The price of bookkeeping services is mainly influenced by the number of accounting documents in a given month – mainly purchase and sales invoices – but also including other factors, such as the character of the business, complexity of the book entries, number of fixed assets, number of bank accounts, import/export, number of branches and any additional services required.
