The Polish National Court Register (NCR) or the Trade Register in Poland was founded according to the Act adopted on 20th August 1997 on the National Court Register. It is developed and organized by the Polish Ministry of Justice. Since 2001 it constitutes an electronic base of data containing information about entrepreneurs, companies, foundations and non-governmental institutions, therefore it is divided into three separate registers: the register of entrepreneurs, the register of associations, other social and professional organizations and public health service establishments and finally, the register of insolvent debtors.

The register of entrepreneurs in Poland contains individuals engaged in business, companies, co-operatives, state enterprises, foreign enterprises and other types of legal entities which are subject to registration.
The types of entities entered in the register of associations in Poland are foundations, social professional organizations, guilds, trade unions and public institutions of health service.
The register of insolvent debtors in Poland includes natural persons declared insolvent, associates who are liable with their personal assets or persons who have been deprived by the court to conduct business activity on their own account.

The National Court Register of Poland has two fundamental functions, informational and legal. The informational aspect refers to providing competent information to the public, about the legal status, economic situation, representation of Polish companies, entrepreneurs, organizations etc. The other aspect provides following of certain steps in order to register different types of entities, fulfilling legal requirements and giving legal personality to an institution allowing it to perform legal acts, complying with the law.

The registration process with the Company Registrar in Poland implies filing official application forms along with fee for publishing in the Polish Official Gazette and court fee. The applications are available in courts and in communes, but only for application forms for registration of individuals engaged in sole proprietorships, or general partnerships.
Recently The Polish Ministry of Justice has introduced a draft of an Act of amendments for a simpler system that allows easier access information, via internet, and also facilitates access to the Register, so that registrations can be made online.

Besides registration, NCR regulates changes and modification in the constitution of Polish legal entities, mostly concerning important details of the company's capital and partners, or shareholders of the company in Poland, changes of the authorized representatives of companies. The changes must be submitted at the court register, which decides to gather more information or to simply approve the documents submitted.

The National Court Register is accessible to the public at the NCR offices throughout Poland and via internet on the Ministry of Justice's website.
